3D Holograms to Replace Computers

3D Holograms to Replace Computers

On 18 July 2017, Bloomberg published an article on Meta, an augmented reality startup’s invention of a new technology that has the scope of replacing computers.

Meta, founded in 2012, started with the invention of a prototype made from an oven-heated knife and hot glue gum, after which it gained many investors, making its products famous among manufacturers. Meta has now invented a headset with transparent visors that overlays holographic images on the background of the real world. This device allows users to manipulate 3D models with their hands, browse, send emails and create codes.

Meta first experimented this device on a group of engineers who reported inconvenience in the completion of their work due to incompatibility of the device with software packages used by them. They also had trouble writing codes and testing them. The device was not yet equipped at replacing computers for engineering jobs. Meta, then transitioned to administration and sales employees who reported a jitter which was then tweaked upon to improve the stability and imaging quality. The technology has reportedly made some jobs easier, while other are made harder than the use of computers.

The goal of this technology is to make augmented reality technology an extension of the real world, which would make interaction with holograms similar to that of real objects. Instead of clicking buttons on the computer to move objects, this technology will make such tasks effortless.

The founder of Meta says that they are expecting to perfect the technology for the quick commercialization of it. He envisions people using 3D Hologram headsets instead of computers at their workplace in the near future.
