Researchers from the Western Space Research Institute announced the world ' s first bilateral transborder holographic teleportation, which would be useful for distance education, telemedicine and space research.
Holographic teleportation is a combination of a hologram and a teleport: a hologram of a person or any other object is immediately transferred to another location. For international holoportation, researchers used a special camera that creates a holographic image of an object, which is then sent to a destination of their choice.
The user at the other end wears Hollens' mixed reality glasses. This device resembles a game VR slam. Through these lenses, a person can see an object in his environment, as well as additional "virtual" objects and people. If both virtual users use such devices, they can interact with the surrounding world as if they were actually there.
Researchers point out that it is not so much the new sense of travel that "do not need to buy airline tickets" as a practical application of technology; for example, holographic applications can facilitate medical examinations in remote areas and thus save lives.
Participants in the experiment believe that holoportation is the future of health care in terms of access to remote communities, remote areas and quality health care in rural areas, and that applications require further development of technology and such experiments help to find limitations.
For example, after holoportation, participants plan to explore how to combine biosensors with holograms to improve the quality of remote health care. In addition to health care, new technology will be useful in education and space research. For example, in April 2022, NASA holocated a doctor on ISS.
