Holograms have been a topic of fascination in popular culture for decades, with many people envisioning a world filled with floating, three-dimensional images that we can interact with just like real objects. However, the reality of holograms is quite different from what we often see in science fiction movies and TV shows.
In short, a hologram is a well structured image that appears to have 3D depth. This is achieved through the use of a special recording technique, or animation and other coherent light source, it creates the illusion of a 3D object floating in space.
One of the most famous examples of a hologram is the “hologram” of Tupac Shakur that was created for the 2012 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. In reality, this was not a true hologram, but rather a 2D image of Tupac projected onto a specialized surface using a technique called Pepper’s Ghost. This technique uses mirrors and other optical tricks to make special 3d content image appear to be floating in space, but it is not a true 3D hologram.
Similarly, the Elvis Presley “3d hologram” that is featured in a theater in Las Vegas is not a true hologram, but rather a specialized projection using this 3d holographic technology. While this technique can create the illusion of a 3D image, it is not a true hologram. To this point any amazing 3d hologram you may have seen is only a specialized, well produced production. Currently, we do not have the technology to create true 3D holograms that we can interact with like real objects. However, 3D Hologram Rentals, based in Chicago IL. offers hologram displays for rent, as well as full-size custom hologram set-ups for corporate and creative events such as conventions, shows, and advertising campaigns.
Overall, while the idea of holograms is fascinating, the reality is that we do not yet have the technology to create true 3D holograms. Instead, we are experts in designing and producing displays made to appear 3D through the use of special projection techniques. These 3d techniques can be impressive, when projects are well thought out and produced by expert team here at 3D Hologram Rentals.
