While holographic images are not new, a new innovation brings us one step closer to making the holodeck a reality. Dr Roel Vertegaal, Professor of Human-Computer Interaction at the Queen’s University Human Media Lab, has developed TeleHuman, a holographic videoconferencing system. Dr Vertegaal’s technique uses Kinect sensors and a 3D projector to capture life-size 3D images of a subject. The system sends this information to a cylindrical display unit. Additionally, TeleHuman allows multiple viewers to walk around the hologram, giving a greater range of interaction. Dr Vertegaal describes the advantage of using TeleHuman is that it allows greater transfer of…
