HaptoMirage Creates ‘Tangible’ Holograms

3D holograms may still look a bit too gimmicky, but the technology is getting better and better, as more and more new concepts for glassless 3D imaging are developed. In fact, this one particular breakthrough developed by a media design team at Keio University may be the closest to being a true hologram yet, as it introduces the idea of ‘tangible’ full-3D images. HaptoMirage is a new display system that uses what its developers call as Active-Shuttered Real Image Autostereoscopy (ARIA). It is described as a 3D imaging technique that creates “seamless interactive multi-user mixed reality” with a full 180-degree rotatable image. Basically, it means
