Tech project from
is an interactive 3D display with depth sensor and gestural interface:
Holosuite is the result of my master’s thesis research at MIT Media
Lab, exploring holographic video as a medium for interactive
telepresence. It is an application that simulates holographic rendering
on advanced 3D displays, connecting remote users together where they can
collaborate, visualize and share 3D information across the internet
with full motion parallax and stereoscopic rendering.
Using real-time CGH (computer generated holography),
we can also render the likeness of a remote user with parallax and depth
without the need for glasses or software head-tracking solutions,
creating an immersive experience with high realism. Holovideo rendering
is done on the MIT/BYU Mark IV display, a one-of-a-kind HPO (horizontal
parallax only) laser display based on AOM (acousto-optic modulation)
technology. Images from the Mark IV will be provided soon (not shown in
Interactivity is implemented via hand-tracking and hand
gestures, used to manipulate 3D objects between two users, in a shared
virtual space. Holosuite combines two distant 3D worlds seamlessly, to
create an experience similar to real-life 3D collaboration.
My dad gave me the wonderful surprise of some large petri dishes, which are so much fun to experiment with! I put a few up in the shop, a couple full of little bones and a couple full of mosses, lichens, insects and other natural goodies! My dad is always full of awesome surprises. <3
