When I first saw starwars I remembered asking my friends if that holographic 3D telecommunication is of a current technology that only available for certain important group of people. Well as a matter of fact it was not anywhere available during that time (I am talking about during the time Natalie Portman was the actress for Starwars, since Starwars has some versions)
Well anyhow I thought it’d be cool to have that kind of technology available. Well, now that technology is made available through cisco and musion.
Here’re some snapshots of throwing a ball from a holographic person to the other holographic person, taken from the musion’s website:
The ‘Cisco On-Stage TelePresence Experience’ was an ambitious collaboration between Cisco and Musion Systems, which took place during the opening of Cisco’s Globalization Centre East in Bangalore, India.
Musion seamlessly integrated their 3D holographic display technology with Cisco’s TelePresence’s system to create the world’s first real time virtual presentation.
