#4: Holo-scope ✨
The first time you looked through a microscope was probably when your middle school science teacher was teaching you about cell mitosis. We can all agree that that moment was pretty wild — for many of us it was our first time witnessing how complex our world is even on a microscopic scale.
Dr. Simon Scarle, an expert on the intersection between science research and computer games technology, recently tweeted a post of microscopic data that shows us we can now view the atomic world as a 3D hologram.
Immersive Science, a company that develops VR-based perceptual experiences of research data, also recently shared a prototype of confocal microscopy data in the Looking Glass.
If you’re like me and a huge a fan of the 1977 Powers of Ten™documentary, then I bet you’re also as excited as I am about the implications of being able to see cellular and atomic level imaging as a 3D image on your table.
Next up, #5: Holographic life forms
- this is part of our “100 Days of Holograms” series, where Missy Senteio and Shawn Frayne of Looking Glass Factory post one new wonderful or weird (or both!) use for the Looking Glass holographic display each day.
