Holographic teachers were supposed to be part of our future. What happened?

Cast your mind back to the turn of last century. Experts predicted that by now classrooms would no longer feature human teachers, and holographic virtual entities would deliver lessons instead. This certainly hasn’t happened. The closest we have come is group video chat via apps like FaceTime, Zoom or Google Hangouts.

3D holograms have arrived. Sort of

Scotland-based artists Chris Helson and Sarah Jackets have created a 3D holographic video installation which allows you to watch the action from any direction. Named Help Me Obi (for hopefully obvious reasons), the installation is more of a 360 degree video system than a true hologram, although the videos still look like they’re floating in the middle of a room. Unlike actual 3D holograms wh...[Read More]
