Holographic TV Debut is Not Soon

Holographic TV Debut is Not Soon

A researcher at MIT has declared that Holographic TV could be a part of our living rooms in a decade’s time span. Michael Bove, head of the laboratory, predicted that the fascinating device would debut in another ten years or so.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is a place where the high tech geeks and freaks get together to create mechanical and electronic odds and ends of equipment. They come up with all kinds of gadgets and gizmos that become the prototypes for practical devices that have a role to play in the real world. From computers to robots to intricate contraptions, there are myriad objects of interest that come out of this dream factory. Recently, a researcher at MIT named Michael Bove declared with positive enthusiasm that holographic television would be a reality ten years from now.

According to Bloomberg, the holograms it would generate right in the center of our living rooms would make it seem as if we were looking at a real object amidst out environment. This miracle of extreme electronics and laser technology would cost the same as today’s monotonous TV sets that feature a facsimile of the actual scene and that too in two dimensional form. As head of the lab that also invented electronic ink, Michael Bove is the main protagonist in the creation of a special chip that can project 50 megapixels of a holographic image that simulates reality so closely that it is hard to tell the difference between the two. It does this by refracting light in a continuity thereby doing away with three-dimensional glasses.

The hardwiring that went into building this device didn’t cost much and was a cinch to integrate. The range of uses for the chip included surgery and video games. Already Samsung and LG are part of the discussions taking place for acquisition of this hot piece of technology. It’s been over two decades since serious work began on holographic television. The spatial light modulator (as the chip is called) is the answer to today’s three dimensional televisions. Current holographic modulators have a few faults which include: low bandwidth, expensive costs, low diffraction angle, weak scalability, quantization noise, unwanted diffractive orders and zero-order light.

These snags get in the way of progress and have been eliminated in one go by means of anisotropic leaky-mode couplers. The simplicity of manufacturing these contraptions proves the beauty of the process of high tech evolution. So one fine day in the future we will see moving images before our senses that while they are insubstantial will appear so realistic that they would be taken for reality if we didn’t know the fact that they were holograms. That says a lot about this futuristic technology par excellence.
