Hologram Breakthrough — New Technology Transforms Ordinary 2D Images

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, computing, holograms, virtual reality

Holograms provide a three-dimensional (3D) view of objects, offering a level of detail that two-dimensional (2D) images cannot match. Their realistic and immersive display of 3D objects makes holograms incredibly valuable across various sectors, including medical imaging, manufacturing, and virtual reality.

Traditional holography involves recording an object’s three-dimensional data and its interactions with light, a process that demands high computational power and the use of specialized cameras for capturing 3D images. This complexity has restricted the widespread adoption of holograms.

Hologram Zoo Is Real And Signals The Future

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, holograms, mobile phones

The number of Star Trek sci-fi technology that ultimately became real-life tech never ceases to amaze. The series inspired the development of touchscreens, communicators became mobile phones, PAADs became tablets, replicators became 3D printing, and now holodecks are becoming virtual and augmented realities (VRs and ARs). And while fully immersive environments like the holodeck still remain in the realm of sci-fi, a recent report from BBC on a hologram zoo indicates that the future isn’t so far-fetched when it comes to immersive holographic.

The holograms use a new depth technology that not only makes the animals seem big but makes them visible as 3D objects rather than suspended 2D images.

According to the report, the visitors of Australia’s Hologram Zoo, which opened earlier this year, can dodge stampeding elephants, peer into the gaping jaws of a hippopotamus, pet-friendly giraffes, and witness more than 50 lifelike displays from dinosaurs to gorillas—all crafted from concentrated beams of light.

Metalens for AR and VR.

BEIJING, Sept. 8, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — WiMi Hologram Cloud Inc. (NASDAQ: WIMI) (“WiMi” or the “Company”), a leading global Hologram Augmented Reality (“AR”) Technology provider, today announced that a metasurface eyepiece for augmented reality has been developed, which is based on metasurfaces composed of artificially fabricated subwavelength structures. The metasurface eyepiece employs a special optical design and engineered anisotropic optical response to achieve an ultra-wide field of view(FOV), full-color imaging, and high-resolution near-eye display.

At the heart of the WiMi’s metalens are see-through metalens with a high numerical aperture(NA), a large area and broadband characteristics. Its anisotropic optical response allows it to perform two different optical functions simultaneously. First, it can image virtual information, acting as an imaging lens for virtual information. Second, it can transmit light, serving as a transparent glass for viewing a real-world scene. This design allows the transparent metalens to be placed directly in front of the eye without the need for additional optics, resulting in a wider FOV.

Fabrication of metalens is done using nanoimprinting technology, which is capable of fabricating large-area metalens with sub-wavelength structures. First, a mould or template with the desired structure is prepared. Then, the mould or template is contacted with a transparent substrate and the nanoscale structure is transferred by applying pressure and temperature. Through this nanoimprinting process, the subwavelength structure of the metalens is successfully replicated onto the transparent substrate, resulting in the formation of the metalens.

UCLA Researchers Introduce GedankenNet: A Self-Supervised AI Model That Learns From Physics Laws and Thought Experiments Advancing Computational Imaging

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, holograms, information science, robotics/AI

Recent advancements in deep learning have significantly impacted computational imaging, microscopy, and holography-related fields. These technologies have applications in diverse areas, such as biomedical imaging, sensing, diagnostics, and 3D displays. Deep learning models have demonstrated remarkable flexibility and effectiveness in tasks like image translation, enhancement, super-resolution, denoising, and virtual staining. They have been successfully applied across various imaging modalities, including bright-field and fluorescence microscopy; deep learning’s integration is reshaping our understanding and capabilities in visualizing the intricate world at microscopic scales.

In computational imaging, prevailing techniques predominantly employ supervised learning models, necessitating substantial datasets with annotations or ground-truth experimental images. These models often rely on labeled training data acquired through various methods, such as classical algorithms or registered image pairs from different imaging modalities. However, these approaches have limitations, including the laborious acquisition, alignment, and preprocessing of training images and the potential introduction of inference bias. Despite efforts to address these challenges through unsupervised and self-supervised learning, the dependence on experimental measurements or sample labels persists. While some attempts have used labeled simulated data for training, accurately representing experimental sample distributions remains complex and requires prior knowledge of sample features and imaging setups.

To address these inherent issues, researchers from the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering introduced an innovative approach named GedankenNet, which, on the other hand, presents a revolutionary self-supervised learning framework. This approach eliminates the need for labeled or experimental training data and any resemblance to real-world samples. By training based on physics consistency and artificial random images, GedankenNet overcomes the challenges posed by existing methods. It establishes a new paradigm in hologram reconstruction, offering a promising solution to the limitations of supervised learning approaches commonly utilized in various microscopy, holography, and computational imaging tasks.

Transparent Holographic video glass wall by Glimm

Posted by in categories: augmented reality, computing, holograms

Transparent Holographic video glass wall with 4k resolution.
Glimm has made for one of her clients a transparent video wall called as well holographic video wall indoor with holographic content and video s for indoor location.
The video wall exist of 8 panels of 55 inch TOLED displays which we have combined all together and hide the transformers and graphic cards in a small aluminium frame.
The resolution is 4K and the display is of glass in the glass.
Technology explaining :
TOLED stands for Transparent Organic Light-Emitting Diode. It is a display technology that combines the benefits of both OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) and transparent displays.
In TOLED, each pixel of the display consists of a thin layer of organic materials that emit light when an electric current passes through them. These organic materials are sandwiched between transparent electrodes, typically made of indium tin oxide (ITO), which allow light to pass through.
One of the key advantages of TOLED is its transparency. When the display is not actively emitting light, it appears transparent, allowing users to see through it. This property makes TOLED suitable for applications where transparency is desired, such as in heads-up displays, smart windows, or augmented reality devices or in retail designs, advertisement or create a large TOLED video wall or Hologram 2D 3D.
TOLED also offers the benefits of OLED technology, including high contrast ratios, wide viewing angles, and fast response times. The organic materials used in TOLED displays can emit light directly, eliminating the need for a separate back lighting system, which contributes to their thin and lightweight design.
Besides the Transparent OLED technology we produce as well Transparent LED displays or Transparent LCD displays.
How to combine TOLED displays together?
1. Ensure compatibility: Make sure the Transparent OLED displays you are using are compatible with each other in terms of resolution, interface, and electrical requirements.
2. Physical alignment: Align the displays physically to create a larger display area. This typically involves arranging the displays side by side or in a grid formation. Use appropriate mounting brackets or frames to secure them in place.
3. Connection: Connect the displays together using the necessary cables or connectors. The specific connection method depends on the interface supported by the TOLED displays. Common interfaces include HDMI, Display Port, or other proprietary interfaces.
4. Synchronization: If required, synchronize the displays to ensure coordinated content across all the panels. This may involve configuring the displays through software or hardware synchronization methods. Consult the manufacturer’s instructions or documentation for guidance on synchronization options.
5. Display control: Depending on the setup and software capabilities, you may need to adjust display settings, such as resolution, refresh rate, or color calibration, to optimize the combined TOLED display.
6. Content management: Use appropriate software or programming techniques to distribute and display content across the combined TOLED displays. This could involve treating them as a single large display or as individual screens, depending on your requirements.

By following these steps, you can effectively combine multiple TOLED displays to create a larger and visually cohesive display area.
