Now you can get life-like 3D hologram images of yourself to wow your family and friends. Welcome to the futuristic and exciting world of wizardry at India’s – and Asia’s – first 3D hologram studio for recording live subjects in Kerala capital Thiruvananthapuram.
The studio has been set up by Light Logics, India, under the guidance of world-renowned holography scientist PT Ajith Kumar and supported by NRIs from the US, Britain and the Middle East.
“Holography is a technology to record and reconstruct light with its full information content, meaning light from a scene or a subject, which contains intensity and depth information. Unfortunately, in conventional photography, we can record only the intensity information of the light,” Ajith Kumar explained to IANS during a recent visit to Mumbai.
Holograms and 3D holographic images are recorded with laser light and with specialized equipment.
“This can record the whole information of the light field coming from a scene and recreate it elsewhere, virtually transporting space or a subject to a different location,” Ajith Kumar said.
The possibilities of the studio are immense and awesome, with unprecedented display- related applications. For instance, it can be used for recording life-like and visually stunning holograms of our national leaders, sports personalities, film stars and other celebrities.
It is learnt that the Indian government is planning to record 3D holographic images of top leaders like President Pranab Mukherjee, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and others for posterity, but through foreign companies.
