Lightspace DepthCube: 3D Volumetric Display

October 1st, 2005 | Filed under: Products, Technology, Virtual Reality | 4 Comments »

LightSpace claims its DepthCube is the world’s first solid-state volumetric 3D display capable of 3-dimensional projections without any headgear or moving parts. The display runs on a stack of 20 liquid crystal shutters synchronized with a video projector (50Hz refresh rate) all packed in a TV set box circa 1980.

    Ewwww! Can’t create opaque objects! It can only produce light-emitting points, therefore a foreground object must always appear to be transparent. That’s fine for 3D graphs, but not good for 3D scenery.

    Now if their scattering pixels could remain active 100% of the time, and also be illuminated 100% of the time, then it could come close to displaying objects which appear to be opaque.

    You should look at the DepthCube displaying solid models and playing Doom before you
    say “Ewww”…happy to have you come visit, or see us at our next public outing.

    Can you touch the 3d subject with the depthcube? I mean you can put your hands inside the monitor and manipulate the 3d subject? A litle bit like the new lighttouch from EON? E-mail me back on it. [email protected]
