IT Pro 20/20: The ABBA effect
Advancements in the core technology mean holograms could soon become instrumental in eliminating the worst aspects of hybrid work
Welcome to issue 31 of IT Pro 20/20, distilling the most important themes of the previous month into a simple, easy-to-read package.
Earlier this year, the UK played host to a stunning spectacle. Making use of state-of-the-art hologram technology, the ABBA Voyage tour was a reunion of sorts, seeing so-called ‘ABBAtars’ taking the stage instead of their human counterparts. The holographic projections performed alongside a ten-piece live band, blurring the lines between digital and reality.
The technology has been widely hailed as being hyperrealistic, and it inevitably raises questions as to how sophisticated holograms might be used elsewhere. We ask then: will the same technology make its way into the office?
Keeping with that theme of future technology, we also analyse the role of cloud computing in the era of quantum computing, and show how Lenovo may have finally found a solid business case for smart glasses.
The next IT Pro 20/20 will be available on 31 October – previous issues can be found here. If you would like to receive each issue in your inbox as they release, you can subscribe to our mailing list here.
