VR Hololamp Brings The Future Today

Do remember the scene from Star Wars when Princess Leia pleads for help from Obi Wan Kenobi? Asking "Help me Obi Wan Kenobi you're my only hope"

Check out the world’s first portable spatial augmented reality projector HoloLamp! Traditional augmented reality experiences require the use of glasses, tablets or phones, which can reduce your field of view.  With the HoloLamp, users can perceive virtual objects hands-free with a technology that renders graphics giving an illusion of 3D objects on any surface.

So what is it exactly?  HoloLamp is a device that enables the creation of mixed reality elements by combining real objects with HoloLamp effects, which allows users to interact with content in new ways.  The device is connected to a computer through HDMI and USB and uses multiple cameras and a pico projector.  The HoloLamp technology warps the image being displayed so that the picture users see appear three dimensional. 

“The smart glasses and headset industry have been tirelessly working to deliver a mainstream augmented reality experience, though they have been unsuccessful in developing a product that consumers want to wear,” said Guillaume Chican, co-founder, and inventor of HoloLamp. “A headset reduces a user’s field of view and tends to be uncomfortable, whereas HoloLamp enables the user to achieve an immersive experience without having to hold or wear any equipment. The hands-free and glasses-free technology allow users to easily engage with their surroundings while using HoloLamp, making it an ideal solution for numerous business and personal environments.”
