Abstract

A method and system is disclosed to enable contextual 3D Holographic augmentation of 2D photographs/images. The method and system performs an image analysis followed by contextual analysis of 2D photos/images for processing selective 3D holographic augmentation of objects, relevant to user interest, social network content or any other streaming data, while navigating photos.

Method and System for Contextual 3D Holographic Augmentation of 2D Photo

Projecting 3D holographic images, in midair, wherein a user can interact with the 3D holographic images, is a well-known and sought after technology today. Even the art of processing a 2D image into a 3D hologram has gone mainstream. However, enhancing the user's experience by highlighting objects which are relevant to the user in the context of a 2D image is not known.

Disclosed is a method and system that enables contextual 3D Holographic augmentation of 2D photographs/images. The method and system performs an image analysis followed by a contextual analysis of 2D photos/images for selective 3D holographic augmentation of objects, relevant to user interest, social network content or any other streaming data, while navigating photos.

In accordance with the method and system, the system includes a display device, wherein the display device may be, but is not limited to a smart phone, tablet, computer and smart TV. The display device is associated with numerous features which may be, but are not limited to internet connectivity, holographic projection capability. The system further includes an association with a cognitive system, to perform contextual analysis for identifying the relevant objects on the 2D image. Accordingly, the system also includes an association with a social network.

As illustrated in Figure 1, a user viewing a fireworks photo on a mobile device is able to view a 3D animated holographic augmentation in an appropriate shape and appropriate dimension.
