Hologram is coming into devices through Augmented Reality

Hologram or holography was first introduced by the HungarianBritish physicist Dennis Gabor (in Hungarian: Gábor Dénes), he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1971 “for his invention and development of the holographic method”.  This was made possible with the invention of laser by Yuri Denisyuk in the Soviet Union that recorded 3D objects.

Now fast forward to 2014, There has been talks with combining Augmented Reality (AR) with holography concept to make hologram scalable sustainability. Imagine the possibilities of not building new specialised hologram projectors but just using market ready devices such as Google Glass, Smartphones, Smart Glasses and etc to view the AR world coupled with information ready holographic news casters and etc.

Some of the brightest minds in the world are already working on the next technology for the mass media format. It was mentioned by a professor called Tomi Ahonen that AR is considered the next 8th Mass Media after the Seven Mass Media. Augmented Reality is able to realize the hologram idea with google glass and much more. Here are some of the advancement in the hologram industry and technology that makes it possible to be incorporated into our daily lives in the near future.
