Submission + - SPAM: Two guys create world's first opensource volumetric display 1

DonJuanTron writes: Introducing the HoloDome, the world's first consumer Volumetric Display. Over the last four years we have designed, built and successfully tested a prototype of the display. It is a rather steampunk and beautiful thing that is mezmerising to witness. We are now ready to launch this Pozible campaign to help us raise the funds required to bring this exciting new technology into your shed or living room.

A Volumetric Display is a type of 3D display that creates a visual representation of an object or scene in three physical dimensions. This is different from most current 3D display technologies that use special glasses to trick the eye into perceiving a two dimensional image in three dimensions. A Volumetric Display does not require special glasses to be worn and can be viewed from any angle.

  • Minus the sort of over-embelishment which I would otherwise have dismissed as slashvertisement, and the somewhat over the top movie trailer they used, the underlying object, being a seemingly easy to assemble off the shelf volumetric display, is pretty darn cool.

    While none of the technique is oevrly new, having it nicely put together using kit that is well within the means of many is not. Opening it up makes it better.

    Good on them :) May try to build one myself :D
