How do you know when something is real? In this talk, Alex discusses how he and his teammates create stories and experiences that look real through advanced holographic imaging, and where that can lead to in the future. In 2014, Alex and his friend Shawn Frayne started a company called Looking Glass Factory to pursue a lifelong fascination with holograms. They’ve grown their company to thirty people across Rhode Island, New York and Hong Kong, and pride themselves on releasing a wonderful new holographic device into the world every year. Alex runs an R&D lab for the company in Pawtucket and spends a lot of his time thinking about how we can capture digital holograms of our natural world and illustrating a future where holograms are all around us. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
