Researchers at Tokyo Metropolitan University have developed an algorithm for converting lines into holograms.

The new algorithm is fast enough to convert the recording in real-time.

The new technology could be used for remote instructions for surgical procedures, electronic assembly on printed circuit boards, or navigation directions.

One of the main disadvantages of this modern technology is the computational load on the generation of holograms. The quality of holograms in 3D takes up a lot of space, such volumes can only be processed by a supercomputer. There is also the problem of energy consumption.

The new algorithm has made the results faster. Although the images were slightly inferior in quality compared to others, the writing was quite consistent with industry standards.

The creation of holograms in a wide range of settings will help bring technology from the laboratory into everyday life. The team is focusing on the implementation of head-up displays (HUDs) in helmets and cars, where navigation instructions are displayed in a navigational manner rather than via spoken instructions.
