The HOLODOCK™ Holographic Breakthrough

Finally, an affordable personal Holographic aerial image display for the home or business.  See it in 3D stereoscopic action, now!

The HOLODOCK™ is not one of those common Holographic displays that imprisons a “Peppers Ghost” image inside a transparent pyramid-like structure or behind an angled transparent flat sheet.  In contrast the HOLODOCK™  frees the 3D appearing image to seemingly hang and move in aerial space in front of a thin background structure, without the need for special viewing glasses.  The appearance is much more reminiscent of the famous outer space sci-fi fantasy movie scene wherein a Holographic image of the beautiful princess of intergalactic heritage is projected in front of the small friendly robot.

In the current version, an ordinary 2D tablet is docked in front of the background structure of the HOLODOCK™.  A 3D enhancement of the tablet's image appears to float before a viewer who is standing, more or less, directly in front of the structure.  The window for the floating image is approximately 5 inches tall by 5 inches wide and appears, almost magically, approximately one foot out from the thin background surface behind it. One can see in the images of the emerald ring presented(actual optical performance, not cut and paste mock-ups), filmed with a consumer 3D camera, that they appear distinct in the ambient room lighting (refer to the accompanying 3D image pair viewing instructions).

The current system minus a tablet should go for around $100 for its introductory price, with some simple assembly required.  After some special app anamorphic processing, 2D Video imagery such as commonly found on the web may be used  as an abundant source for the HOLODOCK™.  Owners can process their choice of many 2D photos, videos and digital images for subsequent 3D effect aerial image display by the HOLODOCK™.  Apps for telecommunication, interactive gaming, education, advertising, 3D printing prototype display and other popular interests will be developed alongside in support of the HOLODOCK™.  A Fall 2016 availability for purchase, just in time for the holiday season, is anticipated.  Further inquires may be addressed to

3D Image Pair Viewing Instructions:  A recommended width of the included photo stereo image pair for naked eye 3D viewing is about 3.5 inches or less(same for the included video, 480p recommended).  If the width appears wider than that, then the screen might have to be adjusted to diminish the image pair width for comfortable viewing.  Start with your gaze on the Right Image of each image pair.  Now relax the eyes as if they were very drowsy and are seeing double.  When viewing correctly in 3D you will perceive three images instead of just the current two of the image pair, with the one in the middle now appearing in stereoscopic depth.  If you see four images instead of three then simply ease up a bit on your double vision until you see the desired three.  Next you can raise your eyelids from drowsy to the normal position for non squinting 3D viewing.

The HOLODOCK™ patent pending technology is the creation of inventor, innovator Roger Holden.  In the early 1980's Holden designed the robotic camera system used by PBS's Reading Rainbow series to film the vast majority of their Feature Books for the first 5 seasons.(  In 2005 his co-invention(not the HOLODOCK™) was featured on the Discovery Channel special series, The Science of Star Wars, as a real example of Holographic display technology anticipated by this timeless movie.  In 1995 Holden collaborated with William S. Burroughs on a series of 3D digital stereogram cut-ups, one of which was displayed at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 1996.  Previously Burroughs wrote in a 1994 inscription, Roger Holden, who always has tomorrow's ideas today.  In June 2014, Yoshimitsu Banno Executive Producer of the Legendary Pictures Godzilla movie wrote to Roger, Godzilla is making a tremendous record of mega-hit in the world.  It started this plan eighteen years ago by your idea to make a TV series of Godzilla vs. Hedora.  I appreciate greatly your earnest help of promotion in the beginning stage.
