3D Images in Air

by Mick 0 Comments

A new device developed by Japan's National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology uses lasers to project 'real' 3D images into the ether. A special projector can cast three-dimensional shapes of white light between 2 and 3-meters into the air.

Images in Air

Three dimensional images in the Air is a collaborative research project between the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) and Keio University in collaboration with Burton Inc.(Japan)

Key points:
We have used laser produced plasma technology to make a flashpoint in the air.

We have greatly improved the brightness, contrast, and production distance of the plasma by optimizing the laser beams.

Using a laser plasma, we have been the first to succeed in displaying 'real 3D images' in a space where there is nothing but air.

SLI (Scalable Link Interface) allows your computer to use two video cards etc..

Noticed a couple of machines using Athlon 64 chips and dual GPUs - Mesh Computers Fireblade SLI, Evesham Duel SLi costing around £1500 - is this the way machines are going?
