RePro3D Lets You Interact With Floating 3D Characters (Video)
Researchers at the Keio University in Japan have developed a new 3D
display that displays floating 3D characters that can be interacted with
and touched in mid air.
The RePro3D display is made up of a glasses 3D display, a
mechanically controlled model environment and a tactile interface, have a
look at the video of it in action below.
"We use retro-reflective projection technology,
using materials with special retro-reflective characteristics. This
kind of material reflects light that enters back at the same angle it
entered. Using this technology enables a display to show images at a
different place from the light source.”
