Paper Abstract

The authors developed the revolving lantern using images of the holographic display. Our revolving lantern playbacks the virtual 3D images which are floating in the air. These spatial images have motions and interactive changes. The prototype imaging unit consists of the hologram, turn table and illumination system which can change the color of light so as to reconstruct various spatial images. In this paper, we describe the spatial imaging with a holographic technology and the reconstruction system which playbacks the rotating motion and various 3D images. A hologram playbacks 3D images. These reconstructions are generally static images. The rotating image like a revolving lantern can be produced when a hologram is spinning on the turn table. A hologram can record and reconstruct various images using the different wavelength of laser beam and illumination. When the illumination system changes the color of illumination light, a hologram reconstructs other images.
