Hologram Projection Phones To Arrive Next Year & DARPA DRAIN CHIPS


5000ppi Hologram Projection Phones To Arrive Next Year

The advent of lifelike holograms is upon us. We have seen celebrities who are no longer around; appear on stage and ‘converse’ with real people thanks to new standards in holographic technology. Imagine this type of breakthrough tech being wielded in the palm of your hand? Well folks, we don’t have to wait too long as the technology, which makes an image ‘float’ as a 3D image in the air, is finally here.

The company that has made this breakthrough, Ostendo, has produced a hologram with a 5,000ppi projector. It is this type of projector that should interest us, as they plan to fit it into smartphones in the second half of 2015.

The hologram is created using six projectors, which layer light to create an image floating in the air, much like a real and solid object. The discovery came from fusing an image processor with a thin layer of micro LEDs to create the Quantum Photonic Imager. The result is quite remarkable; a projector that is approximately the size of a TicTac candy. The projector is powered by the chip that controls the colour, brightness and angle of each individual beam of light.

When the holographic projector prototype, was demoed to The Wall Street Journal, it displayed a floating 3D dice. This dice looked solid from all angles that it was viewed at. Unlike the iPhone’s Retina Display, which operates at 300ppi, this object is displayed with ‘almost real’ 5,000ppi projectors.

Ostendo has said they are working with handset manufacturers now for a 2D projector into a mobile device by the summer of 2015. The full 3D projector however, should arrive later in 2015.

The firm is aiming to make the pixels even smaller to enable higher resolutions. It will also be scaling up the size, to make 3D holographic projections, which can appear from our TVs! As with all speculations regarding prototypes; until we see a working model, we’ll just have to keep on waiting.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is developing brain chips that will implant or remove specific memories from a subject, a prospect some may deem chilling given DARPA’s previous advocacy of authentication microchips.

Neuroscientists foresee a brave new world where minds can be programmed using lasers, drugs and microchips in order to create false memories, a technology that has already been used on mice.

“DARPA [the U.S. military’s R&D agency] seems to be going full steam ahead on these kinds of technologies,” neuroscientist Joseph LeDoux told MIT Review. “What they plan to do is put chips in [the brain]. It would be like a prosthesis–instead of moving your arm, you’re fixing memory. I have no idea how they would achieve that.”

MIT Review’s Brian Bergstein admits that the notion of implanting or removing specific memories “often sounds creepy,” but that it will be useful in treating PTSD, reducing anxiety or combating addiction and depression.

Scientists are heralding the beginning of a “golden age” where minds could be manipulated to function better, although LeDoux acknowledges that ethical implications include the possibility that the application of the technology could lead to the creation of “fearless monsters.”

DARPA’s push for brain chips that could erase or implant memories takes on a somewhat sinister tone given the organization’s prior advocacy of edible “authentication microchips” and electronic tattoos that can read a person’s mind.

Former DARPA director and now Google executive Regina Dugan told an audience at the All Things D11 Conference last year that the tech giant was working on a microchip inside a pill that users would swallow daily in order to turn their entire body into a broadcast signal for identification purposes.

When Dugan was asked by the moderator, “Does Google now know everything I do and everywhere I go because let’s face it….you’re from Google,” she responded by laughing and saying he should just swallow the pill.
