e-HoloCam – 3D Underwater Camera


Next week will mark the unveiling of the eHoloCam 3D Underwater camera. The only camera of its kind in the world, the eHoloCam is a 3D holographic camera used to capture images of underwater organisms and living particles to provide scientists with a greater understanding of marine life.

One of the benefits of this technology is that is allows for the research and recording of underwater environments in a non intrusive way. This in turn allows for certain data to be gathered that was previously thought of as being impossible or very difficult to measure.

The eHoloCam was developed by the research team at the University, in collaboration with CDL in Aberdeen who specialise in offshore instrumentation and Elforlight of Daventry, developers of novel solid state lasers.

The technology will be officially unveiled at the Innovate conference which begins on September 18th. 3DWalkthroughs.com will not be at Innovate but will do our research after the show to comment on the reaction of people that were in attendance.
