Microsoft have displayed a 3D ‘hologram’ display that allows people to ‘move’ around the objects that are shown. The display is actually a 2D projection that employs Kinect eye tracking technology to change position as the viewer’s angle changes. The result is an illusion that the 2D projection is actually a 3D hologram. But that’s not all. The Kinect camera also tracks the hands of the viewer, allowing a similar illusion that the objects can be moved.
This type of ‘psuedo’ holography is closer than most people realise, with several companies other than Microsoft developing it. 3D interractive holo porn involoving this technology is likely only several years away from reaching the home.
