Forget swiping your smartphones, interacting with holograms is the coolest thing that you will be able to do
Development in technology has been taken to new heights, but for some Japanese researchers, the work has just begun. These researchers have been able to create holograms that can be disrupted by human touch. The touchable holograms are called Fairy Lights, and thanks to the efforts of these researchers, this could probably mark the beginning technology where humans could finally be able to interact with the hologram. According to a source, one primary use of a hologram would be to use in medical breakthrough, since the procedure could be shown through these movable images.
Reuters reports that these holograms were made using femtosecond lasers. In case you did not know what this was, it is a laser that can excite physical matter to emit light in 3D form. These lasers can produce high-frequency pulses, from 1,000 to 200,000 pulses per second depending on the type of laser. Best of all, these pulses are able to respond to human touches, so in the future, you will be able to disrupt them while they are suspended in mid-air.
Yoichi Ochiai, who is one of the lead researchers for this particular project and is conducting and reporting his findings Tsukuba University has stated that:
“People’s daily lives would change if we use a bigger laser in a bigger space where people can interact with it, and to see how it can be used in situations where three dimensional communication is necessary such as a construction site or in the medical field.”
If you want to see these holograms in action, then you can always take a look at the video below. So now does smartphone technology seem all that great to you, because it looks like the hologram is definitely going to be the future, at least in our opinion.
