We are now going to have a handful of people working and perfecting this in the years ahead. I can't wait to see where this goes.




This True 3D display technology, developed by Burton, uses a laser to creates luminous points of light at desired locations in air or underwater.

This system is an evolved version of technology co-developed by AIST and Keio University, first announced in 2006. It works by focusing laser light, to produce plasma excitation from the oxygen and nitrogen in the air. The researchers state that this is the world's first technology to show pictures without the constraint of a screen.

"Most current 3D devices project pictures onto a 2D screen, and make the pictures appear 3D through an optical illusion. But this device actually shows images in mid-air, so a feature of this system is that it enables 3D objects to be viewed naturally."

"This system can create about 50,000 dots per second, and its frame rate is currently about 10-15 fps. But we're working to improve the frame rate to 24-30 fps."

In this demonstration, to make the system more compact, a green laser is shone into water from below. But if a laser source with higher output is used, images can be displayed in air. A color display can also be achieved by using a combination of red, green, and blue lasers.

"As the first application for this, we thought of digital signage. Also, because this system makes 3D objects look natural, it could be used for analyzing 3D objects, and if its precision can be improved, it could be used in healthcare, too."

This technology is going to give us some pretty neat effects in the future. You know the biggest aspect is making this safe without melting people's eyes out.

Pretty cool, and I bet I know of one industry paying attention and it rhymes with corn.

No problem, I have been waiting for that shark from back to the future for about 18 years now...

OMG, you are a genius. You should be one of those product enhancer people.

You can imagine these, in 15 years time, maybe even less, being use as huge advertising ads for big companies in they sky of major cities.

Is your sarcasm button on? I can't tell.
Only stating the obvious, but I still think it's a good innovation.

Everyone who could get their hands on one of these would be making a ufo freak somebody out. I would use it to play some pink floyd, doors, or nine inch nails to.

Sorry I forgot to be more clear-That's awesome!
Really what a great idea. Not that I would use it, probably other people though...

This is nothing new, unless I am mistaken?





Perhaps I am missing something.

That video is about realtime video/3Danimation merging, notice how he's not holding the flower until the camera changes.

The news article is about actual 3d holograms.

You are mistaken, these are two totally different technologies. Yours requires a camera to "output" the elements, the one I posted is a real hologram that anyone can see without a t.v..

Your video is pretty darn awesome though! I would love to use that technology for my next PowerPoint presentation, or even a prezi.
Thanks for the link, but 2 different concepts.

pfffft. I've been waiting for this technology so I can plan my assault run on the Death Star.

So if they get it in the iPhone 6, we will need an app that allows a stripper to perform in 3d above the phone, very nice screen saver, remember the spider on the table cell phone ad, picture that in 3d color.LOL

We need these people to pursue this. Off the top of my head I can only see this being practical for porn, t.v., advertisements, haunted houses, sports, fun, etc.

hmm, i could see this working to make geometric shapes, like wire-frame models. but for the people saying this is going to fake the rapture, theres a pretty big problem.

that is that the back of the image is visible through the front of the image. so if you want to show a realistic 3d scene you would have to occlude parts of the image so that it would only be perspective correct for one viewer. moving off axis for instance, you would see that it was only partially rendered.

so pretty cool tech, but project blue beam it aint.

Actually this is the first tech Ive seen that has any capability even remotely similar to the claims made for project bluebeam.

All the previous projection technologies I saw needed something to project against which meant project bluebeam really wouldn't work without a "screen" of some sort. This technology apparently doesn't need any "screen".

But if you mean it looks so crude it won't fool anyone into thinking the images are real, I'd have to agree with that. It's got a long ways to go before that happens, if it ever does. Remember holograms still look pretty crude and not realistic even though they've been around a long time. Maybe this tech will advance though, we'll see. It's pretty crude, but for the first demonstration of a breakthrough tech, not bad.
