A group of Japanese companies and scientist have succeeded in the creation of an experimental device capable of creating true 3D images.



The device we have developed utilizes the plasma emission phenomenon near the focal point of focused laser light. By controlling the position of the focal point in the direction of the x-, y-, and z-axes, we have succeeded in displaying real 3D-images constructed by dot arrays in air (3D-space).

The laser light source we used in this work is a high-quality and high–brightness infrared pulsed laser (repetition frequency of pulse: approximately 100 Hz), by which plasma production can be more precisely controlled, enabling brighter and higher contrast image drawing. In addition, the distance between the device and drawing points can be greatly extended (several meters).


A.I.S.T


This is, in my opinion, a very cool developmental technology.
Even as the technology is now, it would still do good in quite a few different markets, entertainment being an example.

A picture of the device in action.




Thoughts, Opinions?

I don't really have much to say but I am 17 and can not wait to see what they do in the next 50 years.

Very cool, but very expensive I am sure.

I'll bet it does wonders with porn, the next trillion dollar market.

Coolness! So how long until this technology becomes available to the masses? Imagine Lord of the Rings 3D

This thing is still cooler
Holographic PC Interface Invented
I bet they impliment similar technologies.

The phenomena is a strange one. Once I was tinkering with an optomologist's laser device, used on patients sitting upright. When fired it created a spark in midair, where the two lasers were focused.

I doubt it, from what I understand, the device from that thread acts more like a projector.

The one from mine uses lasers to create small balls of plasma in the air, atleast thats what I understood from the links.

Interesting stuff.
If u can't get hold of it, copy the address, as usual.

To get multiple colours they would need to encase those dots behind a sphere like screen that filters the white and makes red, blue and green. Otherwise, it will just be white or some other colour of dots (not a mix). Also, forget touching them as they will hurt, you'll also need protective goggles.

You would also need permits for this type of thing as it can do very light welding and will blind in an instant if you look down onto the top of the array of dots. This kind of thing is 3D but should not be used for holo-TV, it would be like using the heat from a car engine to heat a room.

All of these revolutionary inventions start off completely unfeasable, expensive and dangerous. I bet they'll slowly make it safer and cheaper to the point where you could buy pens which project a hologram of a scantily dressed bikini model giving you a 2.5" tall lap dance.

Unless they find a very odd way of making air ionize into plasma with 5mW (milli watts-less then 1watt) of power, they will never be safe or in pen form. Each dot is at the VERY least 1KW (1000W).

Well, in the very least they've created a kind of "force field." Project a solid panel of plasma dots filling an entryway. Doesn't really physically block movement, but probably deters people from trying to pass through it.

Well, don't think that would be considered a force field. As the term "force" in force field is very specific. It would be more an "energy-based field" or rather more specific a "plasma field." Would be nice if something of this sort could succome to the entertainment industry though. Would provide a nice change to these heavy monitors we have. Imagine, a big screen you can use for a monitor or TV that is just a flat strip that lies on the ground... "Loses himself in a daydream of the possibilities." Anyway, yeah, cool topic... yet still not advanced enough

thats frieken amazing! it reminds me of those portable holograpic comminicators the guys in star wars use! id love to see them use this on a movie not just shapes.
