Life-Size Holograms Are Set To Revolutionize Videoconferencing

Using a ring of intelligent projectors mounted above and around a retro-reflective, human-sized cylindrical pod, a team of scientists at Queen’s University has been able to project objects as light fields that can be walked around and viewed from all sides simultaneously by multiple users — much like Star Trek’s famed, fictional ‘holodeck’. Capturing the remote 3D image with an array of depth cameras, the team has ‘teleported’ live, 3D images of a human from one room to another — a feat that is set to revolutionize human telepresence.
