Recent advances in ultrasound technology have provided sonographers and expecting parents with the ability to see real-time video of an unborn baby with remarkable clarity. However, they have been limited to viewing this video on a 2D screen with slow point-and-click controls for adjusting the perspective. HoloBaby enhances the 4D ultrasound viewing experience by displaying it as a hologram in 3D space and allowing the user to naturally move a held object to view the baby from every possible angle. Modern ultrasound equipment produces 3D volume objects that HoloBaby quickly imports and matches to a particular tracking object. The application is built on a powerful augmented reality platform by Metaio and is intended for use with the Moverio BT-200 smartglasses. The semi-transparent display of these glasses allows users to see virtual content without obstructing their view of the world, which helps to keep them oriented. HoloBaby is intended for use by 4D ultrasound providers and their clients during an appointment. The application will also be available on smartphones and tablets for parents to share the holographic experience with family and friends.
HoloBaby Demo has been submitted for approval to the Moverio App Store. Visit 'http://www.fissurecreations.com/holobabyqr' to download and print the QR code needed to drive the experience!
