Creating Hologram Using Software Application, Horizon All-In-One PC and Holographic Pyramid

Easy Holograms 4D is an augmented realty app that can make 4 dimensional hologram images from your photos and display them on holographic pyramid lying on a horizontal LCD screen, so any user will be able to make their own holograms by taking pictures of any object/person from all 4 sides, than application will assemble and align those images on LCD screen, which will be refracted from transparent pyramid to the user eyes and appears as Hologram.

Easy Holograms also incorporates a gesture controlled picture and video viewer application to display photos and videos on the computer as a Hologram and user will be able to manipulate images (Zoom, Pan, Scroll) and Play Video clips using gesture commands or touch commands.

Easy Hologram 4D is going to be an interactive and entertaining app for every age group, so they can make their own holograms or view pictures library or even watch video clips in holographic view.

Tools and Hardware:

Bright LCD Screen (Preferably All-In-One PC), Holographic Pyramid (transparent acrylic or plastic sheet, fold able from edges for easy storage), Easy Hologram App, Gesture Camera (Optional)

Programming Languages and Tools: 

C#, XAML, Silverlight, Intel Perceptual Computing SDK, SyncFushion controls

Intended Uses  

* Any home user will be able to make 4D Holograms by taking pictures of all 4 sides of the object/person and Easy Hologram App will assemble those images to be projected on Holographic Pyramid lying on top of Horizontal LCD screen. Once 4D Hologram is created on transparent pyramid user will be able to manipulate images (zoom, pan, rotate, switch to next image or video) using Air Gesture commands or by touching LCD

* Easy Holograms 4D can be used on any trade shows, events or store shelf to display products in 4 Dimensions as a Hologram

* Easy Hologram may be used for presentations and business meetings, in future we have plans to incorporate holographic reflection screens as part of tablet casing, so user will be able to unfold and make that transparent screen as holographic display

* Easy Hologram may be used to display medical images as Hologram

* Fashion and Jewelry retailers may use Easy Hologram 4D to create holograms of their products (by taking 4D Pictures) and shoppers will be able to virtually wear the product on their hands, fingers or wrists by putting their hands or wrists in the Holographic Pyramid, Gesture Camera will detect position, angle and size of the hand and will project product’s hologram accordingly. This technology can save a lot of time, effort and money for retailers and shoppers, because shoppers would be able to experience the product in seconds without even physically touching it
