Although we’ve written a lot about the commercial applications of virtual technologies, 3D holographic displays are currently being used in other practical ways.
CBS Sports reported that sports teams, like the Ravens, use VR as a tool to train for their upcoming season without having to step on the field. They observe plays out of their playbook in holographic form, allowing them to critically assess it from all angles and interact with the players without any real injury or contact.
Holographic displays are also being used in the medical world as a learning tool allowing students and doctors to examine anatomies in 3D form, unhindered.
As well, holographic imagery has been popping up all over the entertainment industry. Dead celebrities like Tupac Shakur and Michael Jackson have been resurrected via 3D hologram projectors, performing captivating shows where their presence appears to be as real as it gets.
Next year, the ‘70’s pop group ABBA is set to go on tour as holograms.
Even though all members are still alive, their digital 1977 selves will be touring internationally in 2019.
Holographic projection technology provides impactful services in many different industries and are capable of changing our practices so that we are able to learn and live most effectively.
