Innovation News: New Hologram Technology

Hello, my name is Evan Carroll, and I am a senior at Northwood School. I am going to explain new hologram technology that could become present in everyday life.

At Australian National University, a group of scientists claim to have created a small hologram machine with the highest resolution to date. It is said that the use could help people understand pictures in a new way. Previously they have always been 2D but a high-def hologram would be 3 dimensional. They claim a new nano material is used to help the display be clearer than before. The transparent material is the key because it won't lose as much energy from light. They have been testing these new hologram machines and have created some from .2 to .3 inches wide and .4 inches away from the machine. They say that although it isn't ready for commercial use, they have taken the next step into 3D imagery.

This advanced technology stirs up many questions for people. I would like to know how soon can this be implemented into daily life. I would like to know how they plan to market this to the rest of the world. I would also like to know if this can replace technology we currently have. The progress made with hologram technology is groundbreaking and I hope to see it put to good use in the future.
