Researcher’s demonstrated the world’s first international holographic teleportation

In earlier times, teleportation was limited to science fiction literature and movies. Researchers are working to make this idea of teleporting possible. Quantum teleportation can transfer information between two quantum particles as mentioned by the EPR paradox by physicist Einstein and his colleagues.  

Transfer of information from one place to another is one thing but the transfer of humans from one place to another and that too without any change in physical space seems like a fictional movie.

In April, NASA holoported a doctor onto the International Space Station (ISS), making the first “holonaut”.

On July 27, a group of researchers demonstrated the world’s first international holographic teleportation. This was two-way teleportation in which the team transported one person from Alabama to London, Ontario, and then each of the members here on the project was able to instant holoport themselves in the holographic form down to Nashville, Alabama according to Dr. Adam Sirek, a faculty member at the Schulich School of Medicine Dentistry, and Western Space. This is a futuristic technology with many applications in the field of Science and Medicine.

Holographic Teleportation Technology

The hardware developed by Microsoft and the software developed by Aexa Aerospace, headquartered in Houston made this holographic teleportation technology possible. Later Aexa partnered with Western and Canadian company Lead Biosystems to explore possibilities of this technology in medical applications. Later, this partnership led to the demonstration of the first holographic teleportation.

How this works:

Special Camera- A holographic image of a subject is sent to the destination by taking an image using a special camera.

Hololens- A device, the person on the other side is wearing. With the help of hololens, individuals can see the subject within their environment. If both the subject and the person on the other side wearing hololens, they can interact as if they are actually there.

Hereafter to Holographic Teleportation Technology

The technology can transport the holographic images of a person but still, the possibility of interaction using touch is missing in medical applications, which is a big part of medical exams.

Not only the medical field but many other possibilities will be open like virtual meetings with 3-D experience would be possible.
