A new technique for producing computer-generated holograms drastically cuts down on computation time and produces high-resolution, photorealistic 3D images.
Traditional holography records light on photosensitive materials to reconstruct a 3D image. Unlike stereoscopic 3D displays, holographic images do not conflict with sensations of depth. However, this technology can only create 3D images from physical objects. The analog technology used to create the images also prevents them from being archived or transmitted using digital media.
