Touchable Holography

I found this while researching for the blue sky idea.

As we have decided that our blue sky idea will revolve around surfaces, this video demonstrates the possibility of creating holographic projections that can be interacted by humans.

This technology was presented at the SIGGRAPH 2009 emerging technologies.

The user is given feedback with the Interaction Airborne Ultrasound Tactile Display. The possibilities that this has for future human interaction with the digital world is phenomenal, being able to touch and manipulate some digitally with your bare hands means that faffing about with a mouse and keyboard could be old hat!  Obviously, this is going to take a while to mature and become mainstream, but its exciting never the less.

Websites for Presentation

Here’s some websites I was thinking I could use to show how programming language and the internet itself has evolved into:

Interactive Holographic Corkboard (Bluesky)

This isn’t entirely new but is a collaboration of several technologies and can be implemented for several ideas.

I came up with this idea when looking round the room trying to invent something practical while being impressive enough that people would actually buy it.
The Interactive Holographic Corkboard is like a normal corkboard used to put notes, pics etc but it is a virtual board show through a holographic display.
There are three features to this:
1. It uses a technology similar to Microsoft’s Kinect that can read certain objects and transfer them electronically. It also allows you to interact with the board yourself by moving things around all turning the board portrait or landscape. You can also write notes on it using your finger or a digital pen.
2. It has many boards you can display by using a hand movement to slide one board and replace it with another. This means you can one board to display notes, another for specific interest and another for posters like any teenager in their room would have. You can also view pics on a slideshow like a digital picture frame could.
3. It’s virtual so you can download widgets and posters online wirelessly and put them on your board like a virtual dashboard.

The product will have to be plugged into the wall but can be put on sleep.
Its practical use is to save wall space and not to spoil the wall itself.

Social Network Review

I thought I put a link to Social Network since I did do some basic research into Facebook as part of Established Technology.

This review is by whattheflickshow which I found on youtube.com. Its a long review but talks about how fictional the story is and the story behind the film.

Links to Internet Research

Here are some links to some research I did. They are all taken from various Web Designer Mags:

The first link talks about Web 2.0 and what it is:

Second link is about blogging and its history:

Where Wizards Stay Up Late the origins of the internet

This best seller contains details about how the internet was created and follows the lives of some of the key members of the team.

I used this book as a reference to confirm some dates and explanations I found on the internet when I was looking for basic information.
