Looking Glass Factory puts hologram technology in a way that everyone can see and interact with. Holoplayer one, It appeared at SXSW 2018. Also in the same year, it was developed for 3D job creators funded through Kicksater. Mirror It was the world’s first desktop holographic display device. It had features that would make the work of 3D creators, artists, game developers, and product and industry designers easier.
3D photography software that supports converting photos to holograms
Inspired by the Looking Glass product and again massive by financing Another Looking Glass Factory product that came to life was the Looking Glass Portrait. The Portrait, the first personal holographic frame, is the product of 18 months of work. With new models like the iPhone 12 Pro that use machine learning and LiDAR function, it is possible to reveal the 3D hologram with a single shot. Those who do not have phones with these features can record, play or send their holographic messages with the Microsoft Azure Kinect package or Intel RealSense cameras.
With the company’s effective holographic imaging technology, Portrait is actually a digital photo frame. To create 3D images, technology similar to Looking Glass and Holoplayer One is used. The company offers a cloud-based service that aims to turn any photo into a hologram. Thanks to the machine learning system, a specific depth map of the photo is created. In this way, the photo is transformed into a holographic map.
It does not matter from what angle the image was taken or if it is real. This mapping system can transform any photo. In the previous Looking Glass product, to have a holographic image of the product it was necessary to have a photograph from different angles.
Looking Glass Factory, which wants everyone to have their own holographic image and aims to present it as a product that can be shared at home, plans to launch its cloud-based service in the second half of 2021 and launch the hologram-compatible framework.
