I remember that video, but I don't know where you'd find it. I'd like to see it again, though, and find out what progress the development has made.
It was pretty future-freaky.
There was a video of some company that had developed a 3d interactive display. It was very much like watching the interactive computer holograms that were featured in Minority Report.
Long story short, I've been trying to find that video now and wasting tons of time doing it. Anybody remember where I can find that video?
A link to it would be appreciated.
Ask on CGtalk.com in the tech section. Those guys will know.
They have monitors with 3d output that you can buy,but the holgrams aren't touch senstive. Also there fairley bad looking, you have to be looking directly at it for the illusion to work.
I forgot the name of the company that came in and demoed them for the SFX company I work for,but if I find the card Ill post it.
Little off subject, I did see a new type of TV tho this company wanted to put on the market in like 5 years. Its based off High Defenition Range Imagery,and will basicaly look like you're looking into a 3D world through a pain of glass. It looks rad, the only problem there having with it is, its so real that if they were to show a picture of a sun for example it would become quite blinding to the viewer. /giggle

I REMEMBER THIS!!
It was some movie demo of this new sort of Techno music maker right? It had this guy dragging around little holoblocks and polygons on a table, adding them to some spinner thing to make sounds and music? Is that it?

Here's one http://www.poc.com/emerging_products...ay/default.asp, here's another http://www.actuality-systems.com/, here's a blurb http://www.geek.com/news/geeknews/20...0326019308.htm, here's a link http://www.holodemo.com/ that I found in this article http://www.elecdesign.com/Articles/A...8812/8812.html and here's a last one http://www.dti3d.com/.
I didn't look very hard, but there was also one that I remember seeing which had a kind of sheet of water or mist that the projector shot the images onto, so it was like it was floating in mid-air. I remember seeing the units shown on www.holodemo.cm in some Radiology trade magazines at my last job. They're pushing those things pertty hard toward the medical field.
Thanks for trying, Mike. That's all stuff I found though, and none of it is even close to as cool as the thing we're thinking of here.
Although I guess they had a demo of those holographic lcd monitors at an E3(?) show, that was running Quake 3. That I'd die to try.
