Cisco’s Holographic Video-conferencing Transmits Virtual Humans! – Gizmo Watch: “Holograph is something humans have imagined and been fascinated with for centuries. Conceptually, a hologram or holograph is a virtual image of a human that talks, walks exactly like a human but it has no mass and occupies no space. It can pass through walls and it can appear anytime, anywhere at it’s wish. Holograms have been popping up through science fictions, myths, religions and even horror films as well only now to be transformed into reality! Cisco has demonstrated their new On-Stage TelePresence Holographic Video Conferencing. If you take a look at this video, the guy on the stage is actually interviewing the holograms of two guys in far away places!
This new technology produces high definition holograms that ‘capture the sweat on an eyebrow’, as said by one of the 250 spectators. Well, with this technology, your granny could walk into your home and have chat with you and could ‘vanish’ before you know it were her hologram image that traveled across the seas to meet you! Another ‘Star War’ concept transforming to reality….I’m just wondering how long it’s going to take for robot servant, time machine and Potter’s invisibility cloak to become a reality?
