Hollywood's Favorite Holograms
Holography has become a staple of the science fiction television shows and movies, ranging from holodecks where individuals can roleplay with simulated environments and characters, ads the size of skyscrapers populate the urban landscape, and principal cast members are made out of light particles.

However fun to watch, creative and technical liberties have been taken with the various filmic incarnations and not truly holographic as science defines them, notes Jeff Barnes, EVP, Creative Development, Light Field Lab.

“Hollywood’s portrayals of holographic technology are visually stunning but often defy the laws of physics and are only possible through visual effects.”

We use all of our senses to understand and interpret the world around us. Sensory input— sight, sound, smell, taste and touch— power our most instinctive reactions to the context of our environment. When any one of these does not match up with the others, we begin to subconsciously poke holes in our surroundings, including digital worlds. Olfactory engineering is the design of scents, and has some unlikely use cases in VR.

Aaron Wisniewski, CEO of OVR Technology, has introduced the Architecture of Scent (AOS) to bring olfaction to VR through hardware, software, and “scentware” components. After two and a half years of development, the company’s primary use cases are in healthcare, training and education, with an eye towards gaming and immersive experiences for the consumer audience.

We Are All Livestreamers Now, and Zoom Is Our Stage

By Paul Ford

Stop thinking of an office as a meeting place. Think of an office as a cineplex, each conference room a theater of craft and discipline. In my fantasies the networks are always fast and the software never crashes.

Tune into my livestream, aka any meeting. Let me show you not just slides or ideas but the actual thing that is being made. Chat amongst yourselves.

I welcome the back channel. If you miss the show, I've recorded it and it's transcribed in the enormous library of videos that will define our culture.

Yes, that will be the future. We're headed that way. We're all going to be streams of live data, games and toys and windows. It's unavoidable. We should welcome it, in fact. Spend time, spend money, and make this happen.
