Since the development of the television, the world has been seeking to improve the realistic qualities of video. However, the biggest shortcoming of video is yet to be fully resolved: how to recreate a three-dimensional (3-D) image electronically. While some techniques have been developed in an attempt to resolve this problem, they fail to fully represent a 3-D image and often require glasses or other visual aids. Holographic monitors are capable of reproducing fully 3-D images to the naked eye at standard video framerates and are the solution to the demand for advanced 3-D technologies. Working with Dr. Smalley, I have improved the existing BYU Holographic Video Monitor (Holomonitor) design and began its construction.
