Sony’s latest gadget is the “360 Degree Stereoscopic Display” powered by Intel Core i7 processors. Unveiled by Sony, it is a prototype of a tabletop 3D display that can be seen from 360 degrees and doesn’t require funky and specially designed 3D glasses for full effect.
This holographic device measures 13 cm in diameter and is 27 cm tall (or about 5 by 10 inches). The device could be used commercially and gives its full effect during advertising, medical visualization, digital signage, and in the home as a 3D digital photo display.
Normally holographic images are created by mixing the results of multiple laser lights to lay down a static image, a lengthy and delicate process. A holographic digital display activates when you’re near it and can digitally visually tag actual physical objects sitting behind it. Holographic displays are the ultimate in passive glasses-free 3D, displaying a scene that allows for multiple simultaneous viewing angles based on the actual viewing location without any head tracking. Hologram playbacks the virtual 3D images which are floating in the air. When the user puts a special object like a card, the illumination can change the color of light so as to reconstruct various spatial images. These spatial images have motions and interactive changes. The observers can select and view the spatial image of a hologram using this interactive holographic display. To reconstruct numerous images, we switch the key of an interaction from card objects to holograms. Holographs have the ability to quickly refresh images that could mean surgeons use them as a guide during operations or as a better way for pharmaceutical researchers to study molecular interactions for new drugs during simulations.
An interesting example that makes you more aware about this technology is: Suppose, you want to purchase a trouser in an outlet. A glass display presents actual object to you which are actually behind the glass. You can then try or buy it, combining the data-driven online retail approach with the satisfaction. A user can query the touch-enabled display to either browse the store or find specific items they are looking for.
It is not available yet, but everyone is looking for this new technology that help them drive down the cost of labor and increase the likelihood that somebody will actually buy something. So, there is another joy after 3d and IP TV just at your doorstep.
