Google announced at its annual developer conference that it is working on something very similar to a holographic video call through a system called “Project Starline”.
According to Google, Project Starline is trying to make video calls more natural by using a large display that shows life-size 3D images of the participant.
While the goal is to make people feel like they are there with the other participants, the technology uses computer vision, machine learning, spatial audio, advanced compression, depth sensor cameras, and a fancy giant “light field.”
The “light field” display brings the technology to reality, the screen allows users to view high-resolution 3D images without the need for special glasses, and the depth cameras allow users to see different angles of participants just like real life.
