Interactive HUD-style Holographic Display based on a Holographic Optical Element
Holoxica’s second-generation display, announced earlier this year, is based on a large-aperture holographic optical element, enabling freeform images floating in mid-air that can change in real time.
Interactivity is added with a Kinect motion sensor, allowing people to ‘touch’ icons in space and 'draw' in mid-air. The images are large, bright and visible under indoor lighting conditions, and the approach is highly scalable, leveraging existing manufacturing techniques and high-end components.
The holographic display was recently featured on national UK TV: Channel 5’s “The Gadget Show”. Jason Bradbury, the show’s presenter was blown away by the “… images floating in mid-air in front of my face”.
