A technology company is revolutionizing the market with a device capable of creating a hologram in space from a base. Voxon Photonix has been working with 3D technologies since 2009 and is launching an innovative product on the market: the VOXON VX1, a volumetric screen capable of recreating and projecting an interactive 3D image built with light.
The science and other stuff to know
Voxon’s technology enables devices to generate a 3D volumetric image of an object. It uses software to control the console and interact with the volumetric image. Unlike other holography devices, the Voxon does not require special glasses or helmets because the projection is inside the VX1.
The Voxon Photonic Engine is the method developed and used by the company to achieve the composition that creates the hologram. It uses a light and a high-speed rendering engine. The innovative engineering of the device allows a projector to emit beams of light organized in the space covered by a dome-shaped glass through a method known as binary projection. The projector emits 4000 frames per second and moves at high speed, enough to recreate the sensation of movement in the projected object faithfully.
In simpler words, the software takes an object and divides it into layers, then sends encoded information to the device’s engine, which interprets these signals and starts emitting photons, generating one layer after another in less time than it takes our brain to process what we are seeing. As a result, we perceive the hologram’s movements as continuous and incredibly realistic.
We can use this technology in a wide variety of fields, from the interpretation of medical images to educational applications in schools. In addition, it has enormous potential for making art, data visualization, or engineering modeling. And, of course, for entertainment purposes.
“Our volumetric technology brings digital content to life and helps empower people to collaboratively view, communicate, learn and have fun,” they state on their website.
3D projection devices are expected to become standardized in the coming years, and their commercialization will grow. According to a recent report, it is estimated that between 2022 and 2029, the leading manufacturers of this product will double their sales, diversify their offers and triple their initial investments. The report analyzes the market from a production perspective and includes raw material cost analysis, technology cost analysis, labor cost analysis, and cost overview for the 3D holographic display and services market.
