Holotronica's Holo-Gauze technology has been used at this year's World Science Festival to enhance a presentation on Einstein with a series of visual effects to demonstrate the story of how the scientist's theory of relativity came about.

The holographic effects, designed by 59 Productions, were used to accentuate the on-stage performance and Dr Brian Greene's presentation. The technology incorporates a nearly-transparent gauze sheet, upon which a 2D or 3D projection can be cast, making it seem to the audience like the visual content is present on stage with the ensemble.

"Holo-Gauze is the perfect solution for live events, allowing participants to make presentations behind our near-invisible gauze while informative and entertaining holographic effects appear to float in front and around them," believes Stuart Warren-Hill, managing director of Holotronica. "Indeed, Holo-Gauze is so tricky to see that the participants themselves have been known to accidentally walk through it during rehearsals."
