LitiHolo’s desktop 3D hologram printer creates real holograms that can be viewed without headsets or glasses. It offers a unique 3D display that can be easily shared and viewed with others. This means users can print anything from hologram portraits to 3D computer graphics scenes that can be viewed as true three-dimensional holograms.
The desktop 3D hologram printer takes multiple perspective images captured by a camera or video footage, or rendered from a typical 3D graphic design, and cuts them into unique records for each pixel of the hologram, known as the “hogel” or “hologram element ” referred to as . “The printer then optically encodes this Hogel information onto the special hologram film using laser light. When the hologram is complete, the many different perspectives are recreated as if the 3-D image really existed, and the opportunity is given to look inside Look around the image to see different angles, even up and down.
LitiHolo uses Kickstarter to bring its desktop 3D hologram printer to the masses. The Kickstarter campaign is running 2nd of Aprilwill help LitiHolo source large-scale parts and go into production on the first run of desktop 3D hologram printers that will be available in retail stores $ 1,600 RRP.
Those who support LitiHolo and want to purchase a desktop 3D hologram printer can take advantage of various levels of support and pricing through Kickstarter. Each reward level includes self-developing LitiHolo film plates (pack of 20 with 2 “x3” and pack of 6 with 4 “x5”) as well as optional add-ons such as a hologram display and additional film.

“Holography has come a long way in the 60 years since it was first introduced, and we see our desktop 3D hologram printer as an important next step in bringing this technology to the masses,” he said Paul Christie, LitiHolo CEO and MIT Media Lab Alumni. “For the first time ever, anyone can create real holograms with one of our printers, which opens up a whole new world of hologram possibilities.”
Beyond recreational use, LitiHolo believes its desktop 3D hologram printer can be a catalyst for holography to impact industries like architecture, engineering, and entertainment.
The development of the desktop 3D hologram printer is a major milestone in LitiHolo’s drive to make true hologram technology more accessible. Previously, LitiHolo produced hologram kits that were sold in Barnes & Noble stores nationwide, as well as a full color version that was sold online and at retailers worldwide. LitiHolo also makes a range of holographic films that allow the creation of holograms without the use of chemicals.
