HoloLens ‘teleports’ TED Talk demo Tue planet for NASA scientists
#Cosmoread: Tue planet’s surface, HoloLens developer Alex Kipman “teleported” a NASA scientist at the forum: something amazing happened in the TED 2016 conference today.
Jeff Norris of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Vancouver, Canada, was physically across the street from the auditorium, but HoloLens cameras, then a hologram (three-dimensional, talking hologram, made entirely of light that is) was broadcast on a virtual stage where the surface of the planet was waiting Tue.
“I’m really in three places,” Norris said. “I’m standing in a room across the street, while I’m standing on the stage with you, when I’m standing on Tue planet a hundred million miles away.”
Kipman HoloLens demoed for visitors and for the first time, this new holographic technology teleportation aspect revealed.
“I invite you to experience anywhere, for the first time in the world, here on the TED stage a real life holographic teleportation,” Kipman said. When Norris, a NASA T-shirt and baseball cap appeared on stage (his hologram, that is), Kipman was happy. “Woo. That worked,” he said.
Norris stood on an exotic getaway from data gathered by NASA’s Curiosity Rover, a holographic replica of the planet was created.
To infinity and beyond
Kipman world sees technology as a game changer. Today, he says, humans through screen monitors and other interactions with the world are limited by our two dimensions.
“Simply put, I want to create a new reality,” Kipman said. “A reality where technology brings us closer to each other infinitely, a reality where people, tools, everything a reality. I dream in the center where technology senses the technology we now see, touch and feel the reality gets in the way, but instead embraces who we are. ”
Enter HoloLens “. This is the next step in the evolution Microsoft HoloLens, is the first fully untethered holographic computer,” Kipman said. “I myself for the liberation from the confines of traditional computing 2D’m talking about.”
The technology relies on a fisheye camera lens, a holographic sensor and processing unit loads, according to Microsoft.
And overlaid with various hologram viewers to walk around in their own environment to allow for the equipment in your home or in any environment in real-time map. “HoloLens spatial mapping We call this technology about five frames per second, with the map in real time. As soon as you have in your house, put it on the hologram will start to show and you will start to keep them, you’ll start learning to his home, “Kipman said.
Demo, where Kipman the headset was connected wirelessly to the big screen, HoloLens relied on stored information. “We have an environment where wireless connectivity platform that usually brings down all the conferences we do not take the risk of trying to live with everyone there to communicate with some trying to get something on my head are, “Kipman said. “So what we do is that we have the same spatial mapping techniques at home and then we’ll use it to store the product in stage five frames per second is the former map.”
HoloLens experience more demoing, Kipman what the audience sees through the headset as he dials his world of fantasy to reality, for example, people in the audience turn shows elves with wings.
Discovered with HoloLens
The technique is already being put to good use in scientific and consumer realm.
Case Western University medical students in the medical and the augmented reality world to learn about the human body using HoloLens; Volvo design for both its cars and vehicles in a way to enhance the user experience and brand as a partnership with Microsoft to use HoloLens developed.
And Kipman “personal favorite” – Scientists using NASA technology to detect planets holographically, a partnership dubbed insight goes.
“Today our mission as never before on a group of scientists are looking at Tue planet, an alien world, they must end it as looking man made a little more familiar,” Norris use HoloLens as to the ability of the planet to experience that if there were one. “But it’s like being there to make our dreams to end up with the real world to the virtual dial we do, we can do magical things. Do not we look at the invisible wavelengths or a mountain you can teleport to the top. Maybe some day we minerals in a rock can be just by touching it. ”
Astronauts on the International Space Station to Earth HoloLens headsets so that scientists can help them, as if both were in the same place.
