Holographic projection

Together with the Mexican Monterrey Institute of technology the NewMedia Centre is investigating possibilities for holographic projections in the classroom. Currently there is a pilot running where a teacher from Mexico will teach students in Delft and in turn a Delft Teacher will teach students in Mexico.

Holographic projection technology is revolutionizing the way we teach and learn. With this technology, teachers are no longer limited to the physical space of the classroom and can now reach students from anywhere in the world.

The technology works by using a combination of cameras, projectors, and special software to create a true sized image of the teacher that can be projected into the classroom on a transparent screen. This image is so realistic that it appears as if the teacher is actually in the room with the students.

One of the biggest advantages of holographic projection technology is that it allows for remote teaching. This means that a teacher can teach a class from a different location, whether it be from their home or another school. This is particularly useful in cases where a teacher is unable to be physically present in the classroom. 

Overall, holographic projection technology is considered a game-changer in the field of education. It could opens up new opportunities for teaching and learning, making it possible for teachers to reach students in ways that were previously not possible. As this technology continues to evolve, we can expect to see even more innovative and immersive ways of teaching and learning in the future.


With this technology, teachers are no longer limited to the physical space of the classroom and can now reach students from anywhere in the world.

Play Video

Not only can this screen be used for teaching it will also allow people to do presentations or meetings. Academic Director of the TU Delft Teaching Academy, Annoesjka Cabo was the first to use our screen in the Netherlands during the Education Day in 2022. Where she spoke to a crowd of approximately 150 people and responded to questions from the audience. Overall the response to this performance was very positive.

We are still experimenting with the implementation and possibilities so do not hesitate to contact us if you are interested.
