Voxon launches glasses-less ‘hologram’ table
Two Australian educational facilities were the first to install Voxon’s ‘hologram’ table, the VX1, an augmented reality device with a $10,000 price tag that displays interactive 3D images without the need for specialist headsets or eyewear to view the content.
The VX1 can display an 18x18x8cm ‘holographic’ content ranging from images to interactive display content from its volumetric bowl-like display, being designed for commercial applications such as digital signage, public display interactive media, trade shows and communicating 3D digital models of products or constructs as well as education and gaming applications.
The device operates by tracking the location of the glass, synchronising it perfectly with a 4,000 frames per second projector, allowing each slice to be projected at the right height.
These slices are then ‘stacked and re-stacked so fast that your eyes can't track the motion, and an object appears to float in the air.
The slices are ‘re-drawn both on the up and down swing of the glass, you get a hologram video refresh rate of 30 frames per second.’
