I’ve been very vocal about my dislike of 3D televisions, but three dimensional holographic displays look a lot more promising. This display developed by Burton, uses lasers to project 50,000 dots into mid air (or underwater) to create three dimensional objects. The technology is relatively new and has room for improvement, but I think it’s a fantastic starting point since all previous attempts at 3d are simulated, while this display is true 3d.
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 – Unknown source
