Hologram has been a dream for tech and entertainment companies as well as consumers ever since its inception in 1971. It is one of the very few technologies that have the potential to revolutionise various industries when combined with other techs like artificial intelligence, virtual assistants, and more.
Meet HoloMe, a London-based company that uses human holograms in augmented reality. Founded by Janosch Amstutz, HoloMe creates life-sized, HD, real humans in augmented reality. This allows various brands and companies to quickly put real people into augmented reality to increase conversion and engagement.
A couple of months back, HoloMe developed ‘Virtual Catwalk,’ technology in partnership with ASOS, one of the world’s leading destinations for fashion lovers.
Available now through the ASOS app on iOS 11.3 devices and above globally, the Virtual Catwalk test is live on 100 new-in ASOS Design products.
