Method and System for Holographic Object Interaction Based on Environmental Parameters

Holographic technology software enables the creation of three-dimensional (3D) digital objects in the air. In addition, users can interact with holographic objects. As the

holographic objects resembles physical objects, so there is an opportunity to show

interaction with holographic objects with environmental parameters (e.g., wind speed

and direction, rain, temperature, water, etc.) For example, holographic objects could fly along the direction of wind, melt with heat, float when in touch with water, etc.

The novel contribution to knowledge is an article, system, and method for an active hologram that is responsive to environmental conditions. The proposed system has two principle embodiments. One is for observable environmental conditions (e.g., weather

outside the window, at a designated location, etc.) and another is for environmental conditions that cannot be observed (e.g., conditions outside a submarine).

Holographic objects can change any attribute (e.g., color, shape, number of holographic objects, communications/interactions between a plurality of holographic objects, movement, direction, etc.) in response to an environmental factor or change in such a factor, including egress and ingress of real objects within the system's range.

For example, the force and direction of wind controls the orientation of holographic objects to align said objects with the direction and force of wind. In another example, a submarine can monitor the surface and sub-surface craft in its vicinity; the system displays an active holographic representation of each vessel (size may or may not be scaled) with distances scaled (linearly, non-linearly) or non-scaled. The active holographic objects move and interact based on the associated static or changing attributes (e.g., positions, relative distances, speeds, etc.). If a hologram is monitoring some space (e.g., office, home, etc.) and a person walks into the space, then the system can project a hologram of the visitor into the hologram composite.

Movement of holographic objects may create collisions among said objects.

Accordingly, the system can generate sounds (e.g., breakage) or other natural physical responses based on the selected property of the holographic objects.

The holographic objects interact with real environmental attributes within the immediate or remote (i.e., programmed site) surroundings including water, temperature, wind, or other real objects. For example, the user can program the hologram to be responsive to atmospheric conditions of an offshore office in Singapore.

In addition, based on the selected property of the holographic objects, the holographic object responds to the environmental condition or changing conditions. For example, a holographic snowman melts when the ambient temperature exceeds 32 degrees Fahrenheit. The holographic objects can also change colors based on changes in tem...
