Hologram discussion

Unread post by Newfrequency » Mon May 29, 2017 1:56 am


This is interesting. i like this guy. He presented this video well and the material he uses probably cost less than $500.

1. How did he make the hologram container?
2. How did he sync it up with cortana?
3. Does anybody know how he did this in unity?
4. Do you think hes onto something big?
5. Could you make something similar if not better?

Something similar already is being worked on for consumer market (even if it's not around here)



1. How did he make the hologram container?[/quote]
The technique for holographic images is not that hard and you can find videos how to do this with a few simple tools on youtube as well:


I guess this is the same technique just bigger.

He even said he made the same image from 3 angles on his video, that's why he does this.
Newfrequency wrote:2. How did he sync it up with cortana?
I don't think he has done much here.. he says it's a Windows 10 PC so cortana runs as it is.
He probably just presents the output of cortana (Weather app) after the "general" animation of the 3D model.
Newfrequency wrote:4. Do you think hes onto something big?
This might actually become quite common in the next couple years, especially for geeks like us ;)
Newfrequency wrote:5. Could you make something similar if not better?
I personally couldn't but it shouldn't be too hard. There are some nice projects like Alexa and MyCroft which have a very open API which could be used to create a similar project.
So it comes down to create an animation for all this and find a way to display the results in a readable way.

Good reply meverick very informative. The guy in your first video makes me sad. I hope society never ends up like that.
I think it would be cool to have a live holographic view of your family can 3d cameras pull off such a thing?
Any other ideas throw them on here I think we could build something cool

Yes, I could :D

I actually thought about doing something similar as an Odroid LCD panel project. I figured it would be too "gimmicky", though. The other factor is I didn't want to be "that guy" that posts a "look what I can do" video without the instructions and accompanying software for others to play/experiment with.

[edit]
I was originally inspired by this video ...

MATH! You can convert from any "space" to any other "space" with a matrix.

I call them "gimmicks" because they are more impressive while in your imagination than in reality.

If my teachers had told me that matrix multiplications would lead to 3d p0rn, I would have paid more attention in class...

More than likely "7d hologram" is a marketing term, not a technical term.

Like I said before, your imagination fills in a lot of things that are not there. You imagine you are seeing something other than what is actually being shown. These are the skills and trade of "magicians" and illusionists. Once you understand what you are seeing, all the "magic" is gone.

This explains it. The following link is the most detailed description of 7D Holotech I could find.

You can use any ODROID. That's just a youtube video, or any other type of video that you play.
Donate to support my work on the ODROID GameStation Turbo Image for U2/U3 XU3/XU4 X2 X C1 as well as many other releases.
Check out the Games and Emulators section to find some of my work or check the files in my repository to find the software i build for ODROIDs.
If you want to add my repository to your image read my HOWTO integrate my repo into your image.

This is the 32" touch table with the xu4.

Yes you can play youtube hologram videos meveric but I took this from a .gif then tweaked it in after effects

Which still means it can virtually run on ANYTHING. There is no requirement for what ODROID to use.

True.

You can tell its an led bc the tv is trying to block all the light. I know nobody uses plasma anymore but i bet it would would work best for this scenario
