What Are Holographic Calls? Technology May Replace Voice Calling In The Future

Experts from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), one of the largest technical professional organizations in the world, believe that holographic calls i.e. calls made using 360-degree video camera capturing and transmitting live video could soon replace regular voice calls. According to Vikram Kapila, IEEE senior member and professor at the New York University Tandon School of Engineering, this technology could project a person virtually using techniques such as motion capture. ... “If Jane makes the call to John, then Jane's headset will need to render John in a hologram using his 360-degree video (and similarly on John's end the need to render Jane's hologram).
