    Epilepsy warning, the images in this video flicker at a high rate​


    This 3d projector is using lasers to create a 3D image in either water, or air. The projector creates plasma to render an image in water or air, rendering full 3D unlike 2D screens that can only give a suggestion of 3D. The image is extremely flickery, because it only runs at about 15 FPS. This is a more developed version of a projector that was first announced in 2006. It is developed by Burton and co-developed by AIST and Keio University.

    Wow, really cool. Hope this gets mixed with touch technology and we have our real next gen console

    the flicker is probably even more enhanced by the way video recording works.
    but this is great, one of the 2 biggest problems with holographic projections star-trek style seemed to me to be projecting in mid-air without a physical surface to project on (the other would be making the projection solid)
    looks like this brings us at star-wars levels with holographic technology.

    Okay. That's really cool. Has anyone noticed that the projector is very limited?

    1. It is monochromatic. Images are green, and will be green due to obvious limitations of the lightsource used.
    2. It only shows incredibly simple objects.
    3. It is prone to quick wear-and-tear due to rapidly moving mechanical parts.
    4. It flickers. Alot. 15 FPS is not much for now.

    I'll have my standard "illusion" 3D "holograms" instead, even if it takes a few mirrors to create the effect.

    Rather than liquids, this system uses reflections.

    EDIT: These new YT codes are blerght! 3 edits, no effect. >>

    the voice over said, that full colour would be more than possible using different colour beams in combination, that's how TV works don't ya know.

    Again, not really the point, 50,000 dot's per frame should be enough for reasonable graphics, especially on a small scale.

    Give it time...

    The flickering is more likely because of timing differences between the display and the camera, try pointing your video camera at a CRT monitor, you'll get flickering that you just don't see with the human eye.

    The above system can be done in AIR, no liquid or mirrors required. Do people even watch and listen to these videos before making comments that totally contradict what they have been told/shown?

    I've watched the video and listened to it, I'm just not impressed by the final effect. I choose the second method by comparison.

    I mentioned liquids mainly because this effect is easier to achieve in them. Air is still rather "blerght" as we can see in the forementioned video.

    The idea is to immitate a 3D object, and in that department, the latter "projector" simply "looks better".

    Why so serious Spinal, why so serious? :P

    ow fuck, my eyes

    In all seriousness, it's a great concept with poor implementation at this stage. Interesting, but I don't think there's gonna be a really usable or useful version anytime before at least 2020.

    Alright. Can't wait for my 3ds+ in 2020. :P

    Seriously though, imagine just whipping out a true 3d projector ultra high definition display... in the year 3500.

    :P

    "The criticisms are strong in these ones"

    Even if it isn't going to be something useful to the public, the fact of the matter is that they're achieving what we've only dreamed of (and seen in movies).

    Everybody who is criticizing does realize that this is gonna get better in time.....Ya'll act as if this is a final product or some ish.

    But anyways...I do wish that had shown better objects, but I understand the dot limit. Anyway, I am still impressed and I'm interested to see where this goes in the years to come.
