Microsoft’s Interactive 3D Display Creates Objects You Can Touch [Video]
The tech giant has combined a mirascope with a light field projector creates life-like images you don't need special eyewear to see.
A new holographic display called Vermeer has been developed by Microsoft Research Cambridge. It can provide a 360° view of a 3D object for multiple users without the need for eyewear and enables users to reach out and touch it. The display uses the optical illusion of a mirascope combined with a light field projector and diffuser to create a 3D floating hologram at 15 frames per second, emulating 192 different viewpoints at a time. An IR illuminator and tracking camera can detect and track your hand movements as you interact with the virtual image. You can watch the amazing new technology in action in the video below:
