INTEL HAS DEMONSTRATED a floating display proof of concept powered by its Realsense technology built into a Creative camera.
The experimental device shows how a holographic display could be used in a kiosk environment or in public places where people wouldn't want to touch a display for fear of spreading germs. It is also more secure, as details that are being projected on the screen can only be seen from the direct viewpoint of the user.
The icons projected into the user's field of view can be controlled in the same way as on a physical touchscreen.
The device isn't planned to reach the market but is a way for Intel to showcase how this sort of technology can be used in the real world of the future. µ
