Small pic holography  2

Imagine going to the movies to see your favorite film brought to life in 3D.  You don't have to wear any glasses or strain your eyes, and the actors look so real it's like seeing them in person!   This experience can be made possible with holograms: photographic recordings of a light field that display fully three-dimensional images of the photographed objects.  Unlike images formed by a lens, holography does not rely on special glasses or a screen.  

Although holographic technology has yet to be perfected, the holograms of the future will be indistinguishable from the real objects they depict.  You might see a car that looks so real you will not be able to tell it is a hologram projected in mid-air!  People on different sides of the world might use holographic technology to meet "face-to-face!"  We want to know YOUR ideas about specific ways holograms will be used in the future and what capabilities they will allow beyond traditional 3D displays.  

Deliverables

What useful applications do you foresee for standalone holograms (i.e. holographic technology that does not rely on glasses or a screen)?  For each use case you propose, please answer the following: 

  1. What is the situation or experience in which you propose to use holograms? 
  2. In this use case, what do the holograms depict?
  3. What is the benefit of holograms in your use case?  Why does your use case rely on holographic technology and not traditional 3D technology?
  4. Who is most likely to use holograms in this way?  To whom is this most relevant?  


Considerations

Please consider the following example use cases as you brainstorm new and creative ways to use holography:

  1. A used car dealership shows a holographic display of a car at a tradeshow.  The hologram may be smaller in size than the real car but is otherwise indistinguishable in quality.  The hologram allows a crowd to see the car from any angle.  
  2. Many people could gather to watch a hologram of their favorite artist perform, creating an experience with an entertainment value similar to that of a live show!
