When it comes to holograms some people feel that you have to go big or go home. A 3D object floating in the air is a pretty cool looking effect no matter the size but keynote speaker Wade Barnes decided to go for maximum impact during a recent presentation entitled BIG DATA at the 2015 Farm Tech Conference.
The 45 minute presentation focused on the uses of big data in the future of agriculture world wide. Issues such as global warming, weather changes, food demand, population growth and future technologies were included. A large 3D hologram projector system was used to present the keynote in a high tech delivery.
The keynote audience was treated to a show featuring 3D objects floating in mid air enhanced by sound effects. The presentation was opened with an appearance from FIONA, a holographic robot who beamed in for the occasion. Holograms have become an exciting option for keynote or power point presentations as their popularity has increased in movies such as the iron man series and the star wars films.
Victor is a life size 3d holographic projection and virtual presenter developed by Trade Show Holograms. The company has recently released a line of virtual greeters and spokespersons in holographic form. The first in the series was Fiona a female version in the robot line up. Victor was featured at the entrance way to the Perimeter Institutes annual BrainSTEM festival. He instructed guests on how to participate in the show via tweets.
The 3D hologram projection appears to float in mid air while making its presentation.
The specialized hologram projector can feature a wide variety of other characters, including a clients own speaker or CEO. The CGI nature of the robot allows it to display a wide variety of special effects as well as morph into other display products.
The displays are currently available for sale and rental in the US and Canada.
