Abstract

Article presents a Method and system for holographic object regeneration to minimize the effect of obstacle created during hand based interaction, such that when a 3D project is being interactively touched by user, obstacle created because of user hand will prevent projection above hand. Proposed method will help address this issue by making holographic projection on top of obstacle by secondary device.

Method and system for holographic object regeneration to minimize the effect of obstacle created during hand based interaction

As per recent technology, 3D holographic object can be created in mid-air. User can perform various interaction with the created 3D holographic objects. Following diagram (Figure 1) talks about how holographic 3D object can be created in mid-air and different types of interaction can be performed. Following are some supporting links. http://www.iphonehacks.com/2014/09/apple-patent-interactive-holographic-display-device.html Apple has patent on this, user can touch the object. http://www.google.com/patents/US8847919

Next generation system needs various types of hand and finger based interaction with holographic objects. That includes movement of objects with hand, changing position of objects etc. So, during hand based interaction with holographic object, user’s hand will create obstacle to holographic projectors to project complete holographic object. The hand will cover a major portion of the holographic object. Following diagram (Figure 2) talks about how hand is creating obstacle to the holographic object.

Figure 2 So, we need a method and system by which holographic objects can be corrected automatically if any obstacle is detected. We propose a method and system by which

1. Camera installed in holographic object generation device will measure the position and surface profile of the obstacle accordingly will calculate the cross-section between the holographic object and surface profile of the obstacle.

2. Upon detecting any obstacle, the computing system will segregate the main holographic objects into multiple segments based on number of identified obstacles, As per example, the computing system will split the main holographic object into two parts.

3. The computing system will send the obstructed holographic portion to one or more paired devices, like smartwatch, surrounded holographic projectors etc. Accordingly the proposed second device will project the obstructed holographic portion over the other surface of the obstacle. User can also configure the projection of the obstructed holographic portion.

4. The projection of the obstructed holographic object will be aligned with the main holographic object, so that user can view the splitted holographic object together.

5. If the projection field of view of the second device is not aligned with the main holographic objects, user software installed in the second device (here it is Smartwatch) will recommend the alignment, so that user can visualize the obstructed area.
