The past year has put video conferencing tools in the limelight, and in my opinion, they are sorely lacking. But technology marches onward. Just check out this mind-blowing prototype that Google claims is already in use in a few of its offices.
I don’t see what the big deal is. I’d love to marry Heather Graham. Oh, wait. It’s not Heather Graham? It’s Holo-gram?!? My bad. Anyway, the world that we live in today is pretty, uh… What’s the word I’m looking for?
Gatebox’s Azuma Hikari is a holographic digital assistant who doubles as a virtual girlfriend. She stands 8 inches tall and lives in a glass capsule, which you can put anywhere in your tiny dark apartment.
In this commercial for the creepy Japanese gadget, this guy actually leaves work early because his holographic girlfriend texts him.
I have a feeling that the Gatebox is exactly how Krieger got started with that holographic Japanese girl that follows him around on Archer. We talked a bit about the Gatebox early this year when the oddity first surfaced.
Here’s something that is pretty darn cool for fans of Star Wars. This gizmo is called the Star Wars 3D Holodisplay. Basically it’s a desktop device that brilliantly illuminates holograms of scenes from the movies.
The display uses full-parallax tech, and the lighting and angle are fixed for viewing.
Have you ever wondered what is going to replace the likes of Siri, Cortana, and Alexa? You may be looking at their next logical stage – this holographic digital home assistant.
Japanese startup vinclu Inc. is showing off a concept video for a holographic assistant called Gatebox.
You can buy specially constructed prisms that turn a mobile device – or any small display for that matter – into a hologram-like projector. But you can save a few bucks by making one out of a CD case instead.
On July 1, a ridiculous law in Spain will take effect. Insultingly called the Citizen Safety Law, the legislation forbids public demonstrations outside government buildings and other structures that “provide basic services” unless permitted by the goverment, among other things.
Are you a shop owner looking for an eye-catching advertising platform? Perhaps you have a design firm and you want a flashy way of presenting your concepts? Or maybe you’re a genius, billionaire, playboy and philantropist who already has plans for an armored suit but not the extravagant display worthy of your grand schemes?
Princess Leia must have had too much cake and sent this to me as a gift. Nice! Now shut off that hologram and get in my belly, little droid! This awesome R2-D2 cake actually projects Leia’s holographic message.
That’s right X! It’s a 16″ x 6″ replica of a light capsule from the Mega Man X series, featuring a looping animation of the one and only Dr. Light. The replica was made by artistman Andrewman Butterman Andrew Butterworth.
People love their smartphones, and it’s hard to remember how we actually managed to get anything done in the past with only our dumbphones. Check out this interesting digital art installation from Japan that highlights smartphones.
A couple of years back, a cool device came out called the Holocube. This unique display creates the illusion of a 3-dimensional moving image with a tremendous sense of depth. Now, an updated version of the Holocube has been released with improves brightness and a new trick up its sleeve.
If you’re a fan of rap music, you may have already heard about the Tupac Shakur “hologram” that was on stage at the Coachella Music Festival in California back over the weekend. That means that the performance wasn’t simply a archival video running from an old performance, rather it’s a synthetic creation.
This amazing-looking hologram-like display is made out of a two-dimensional image that’s projected onto a curtain of water vapor. The whole thing looks incredible, and quite realistic. I guess that Leia should have been pleading for DIY-Kenobi instead of Obi-Wan.
