Visitors to Florida now have the opportunity to learn interesting trivia about the Apollo Moon Program via a interactive hologram at the Kennedy Space Center.
The dual sided holographic kiosk, offers Space Center guests 3D visuals and narrative informing them of key aspects of the historic missions. Apollo 11 celebrates a 50th anniversary on July 20, 2019 and the new hologram exhibits are new displays that will remain after the anniversary celebrations. Visitors can access various holographic programs via a touch screen on either side of the display. No 3d glasses are required to view the 3D effect which appears to float in mid air. The special effects kiosks were created by Trade Show Holograms, a company that specializes in 3D holographic effects. The company builds similar displays for sale as well as trade show rentals across the globe.
The dual sided display is unique in the way it projects the images. Viewers can interact with a program on one side of the exhibit while viewers on the opposite side can interact with a completely separate hologram program. Viewer see only the content on their side of the display and not the projections on the opposing sides.
The hologram projector is high tech way to engage museum visitors with historical trivia. It gives them a chance to learn important aspects of the famous moon missions in a 3D realm. The interactive touch screens allow them to select from topics such as the Apollo 11 flight path to and from the moon, The low fuel issue during the first Lunar Landing or the Lunar Module extraction process.
With NASA’s high tech image it only was a matter of time before there would be a hologram at the Kennedy Space Center to help enhance the guest experience.
Trade Show Holograms has introduced its new large scale dual sided interactive holographic projection system. It was showcased at the PGI trade show at the Orange County Convention Centre in Orlando Florida. Visitors to the SPX FLOW booth at PGI used the interactive touch screen to call up multiple 3D holographic projections on demand. Therefore the dual sided hologram projector allows booth visitors to view separate holographic presentations on both sides at the same time. The holograms project without interfering with the hologram on the opposing side. Show attendees can select from multiple presentations via the interactive touch screen.
The system also features the new ” ultra bright ” technology. This allows the images to remain bright and visible in bright environments. Therefore then can be seen from greater distances across the trade show floor. This large hologram projector boast hologram projections approximately 5 ft across. The images are in full color and are a full 1080p resolution. Because of this, the images can easily be video recorded.
Viewers see holographic presentations floating in mid air. This is achieved any special 3d glasses or VR systems. The glasses free 3D system proves popular with trade show visitors as they can see the holograms in 3D with their own eyes.
3D Content Creation for a Large Hologram Projector
How is 3D content created for a hologram projector? The creative team at Trade Show Holograms specialize in 3D animation and modelling. A client provides 3d files of their product like an AutoCAD or STP file. From there textures and colors are added to the 3d model. The model is then rigged for animation. The model is animated to highlight the features of the product. A narrative track is added and the 3D holographic presentation is now ready to be projected as a hologram.
