The current challenges with hologram technology are image quality and machine environment.  Images are often distorted and have few, or even only one, viewing angle(s). Some technologies simply use mirrors to produce the image, which are hard to control. Another issue is noise and air disruption with current technology, as it is not designed for a complete user experience. There is also no current model to effectively manipulate parameters to find the machine’s ideal mode of operation. Finally, with current hologram projectors, rods and poles can be seen in the middle of the structure, which also makes the user experience less immersive. Our product, RotoVision, will be developed to mitigate these critical issues.

The use of high-speed rotating, one-dimensional LED display strips will take advantage of human persistence of vision to create a three-dimensional image.  This image will be viewable from any angle, without interference in the image from the mechanical components. This technology will allow for more control over visual effects for use in the entertainment industry.

Who Will Benefit:

  • Tour Developers
  • Tait Towers Engineers
  • Set Designers
  • Future holographic image researchers

Our technology produces a 3D image using rotating LEDS that produce a different view of the image depending on the viewing angle (multi-angle representation). All rotating components are on perimeter of structure so that the structure looks invisible to the human eye. The user can adjust the rotational speed and brightness to better understand hologram technology and persistence of vision effects. RotoVision will be significantly more quiet and produce less wind.
