Real Holographic Projector

San Francisco Technology Reporter Gabriel Slate looks at this new way to display video on air. This new technology requires no screens, monitors or other physical surfaces to be able to project and display its images.

“Heliodisplay images are not holographic although they are free-space, employing a rear projection system in which images are captured onto a nearly invisible plane of transformed air. What the viewer sees is floating mid-air image or video. These projected images and video are two-dimensional, (i.e. planar) but appear 3D since there is no physical depth reference. While conventional displays have the benefit of being attached to a physical substrate, Heliodisplay projections are suspended in air, so you will notice some waviness to the quality of the projections.”
