So, after a very long break, I’m back here to provide some chills going on in the smartphone market. The smartphone world today, is some or the other way completely mixed up, ALL OF THE SMARTPHONES (in their respective price ranges) ARE SAME!
People can see a wide range of same phones having same processors, screen size, resolutions, camera quality, etc etc…Though their manufacturers are quite different. People who can’t afford a SNAPDRAGON loaded device prefer to buy MEDIATEK ones, which provide nonetheless same experience with their Octa-Core or Quad-Core processors.
But, now there has aroused need to change this preceding tradition. And so is the answer to this question; SMART HOLOGRAPHIC PHONES!
Well, before going in more brief, I would first give you a quick flash of the topic.
At present, you can see a wide variety of Smartphones giving TOUCH SCREEN features, in two classes:
a) Resistive Touch Screen Display (the first touch screen technology to manufacture TOUCH SCREEN PHONES).
b) Capacitive Touch Screen Display (introduced by APPLE, more advanced than the former one + most widely used today).These have succeeded to provide masses a new change in their phones. HOLOGRAPHIC DISPLAY: the new type of DISPLAY TECHNOLOGY that can track the position of Human Eyes, which in turn creates the illusion that the viewer is looking at the real person/object.
As mentioned above, this technology is fully based upon the position of Human Eye; it is currently unable to provide a consecutive view from different directions at the same time. That is, the illusion field generated is limited to the eyes of a single person and provides the best experiencing only to a SINGLE PERSON. So, we’ll call it as SMART HOLOGRAPHIC or PERSONAL HOLOGRAPHIC DISPLAY.Let’s get more aware and included. The Holographic display can be classified in further three types:
Physical Holography (holographic film, laser holographic printing).
Digital Holography (projected laser holographic imaging).
Computing Holography (eyeball tracking holographic imaging, scenario tracking holographic imaging).
Laser holography is the method to record the amplitude as well as the phase information in the light wave that reaches the film. There are quite a lot of variations in the basic method, but ALL HOLOGRAPHY REQUIRE LASER LIGHT, i.e. light that is coherent over the object to be imaged. This is a must to construct a hologram. While in normal photography light, film can only record the intensity of light. Along with all the phase information contained in the original light, the time it reaches the film it is lost, and there is no 3D effect of the film.
Where can Smart Holographic Phone be used?
The first thing which will be attracting your mind after reading the above news will be the scene of a Science Fiction Movie, where a crazy scientist controls all his work by working on an invisible screen in the air, or, a conference of high authorities which appears holograph generators, etc .
So the question is: “What is the exact and most valuable use of this technology?”
Here’s a queue which might enlarge the limited view of its use:
1. HOLOGRAPHIC NAVIGATION:
While 2D display is unable to show the complex road system, this will improve the location and complexity precision by employing 3D images.
2. COMMODITY VIEW in ONLINE SHOPPING:
Earlier and now, e-commerce sites show the image of the good in only a few views, which sometimes disappoint the buyers after receiving their product. This will enhance the more detailed and specific view of the products available at online stores.
3. IMPROVED and THRILLING GAMING EXPERIENCE:
Yes, for hectic gamers, this will be a new surprise regarding their real-life experience with the gaming world.
4. OMG! MYTHICAL and FUTURISTIC MOVIES:
Who does not desired to be in the world of THE LORD OF THE RINGS, STAR WARS or any other such movie? Well, this might fulfil the wish to some extent.
5. VIDEO CALLING-MEETING THE CALLER IN PERSON:
This will make the caller and attendant feel as if the person they are talking to is sitting or walking along with them while on the call.
What about App development?
The success of Android & iPhones literally lies in thousands of amazing apps that provides the users the all new experience. Same in this case, users are still in confusion whether there may be apps for this technology or they have to wait. According to sources, Eastar has set up an OPEN PLATFORM FOR HOLOGRAPHIC APPS DEVELOPERS to invite them from all over the globe! However, there is no record of any active partners or achievements.
Difference between HOLOGRAPHIC DISPLAY and 3D NAKED EYE:
Will the use of this technology be real? Or is this just a Stunt Trick Hoax played by phone developers?
Holographic display relies on light intervene and diffraction to reproduce 3D image of a projection; while Naked Eye 3D uses the principle of grating, requiring video source to be processed. The video source of Naked Eye 3D can be converted from 2D videos, but it requires viewers to be at a specific angle and distance in order to experience 3D effect.
Even though, the technology of Naked Eye 3D has passed over a lot of improvements over past years, reports still includes dizziness and vomitive experience of users. These negative feedbacks impacted user experience. As a result, this became more of a stunt than of real-practical-use.
How this technology works?
As Smartphone display reached the resolution of 1080P along with the advanced hardware configurations, there REMAINS NO SPACE FOR FURTHER DEVELOPMENT. Still, manufactures are trying to find a way to differentiate them using the HOLOGRAPHIC DISPLAY. As this tech can produce a virtual image of a 3D object when its images from different angles are projected from the screen, it is widely believed that this will achieve a better response than that of Naked Eye 3D.
Competitor in the HOLOGRAPHIC SMARTPHONE WORLD: AMAZON FIRE PHONE!
Before the actual launch of devices featuring this technology, there already is a competitor present for it. Around 3 weeks earlier, Amazon unveiled its FIRE PHONE. Except from its amazing service, its BIGGEST SELLING POINT is the DYNAMIC PERSPECTIVE. It constructs 3D images at 60 frames per second, and together with the help of several infrared sensors display the image in 3D. Compared to Naked Eye 3D technology, the Dynamic Perspective of Fire Phone can change a picture’s view as users move and tilt the phone around. Still, it is not related to Holograph technology and is limited within the category of 2D display.
This phone is configured with a 4.7-inch HDS LCD display, supported with a 2.2GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon 800 CPU and Adreno 300 GPU, with 2 GB of RAM. It has a 13MP rear camera with Optical Image Sensor and a powerful f/2.0 lens and also a 2.1MP front facing camera.
