3D Hologram of Death… Star

So as geeks, we all eventually want a giant holographic projector like the ones used in StarWars. But are we willing to put up with a spinning mirror of death to get it?

Researchers at USC have created a holographic 3D display using a spinning mirror. While the resulting image is cool, the device is very threatening. Especially if one were to want one as big as the rebels did. And one like Count Dooku’s would be extremely bad for one’s pocket.

While interactive, it is only so at a distance.

Make sure you watch until the end, as the running 3D guy is incredible…

  1. Even with the spinning mirror of death, it still would make a cool public display, or even a new TV. Think of being able to watch a movie and look around stuff. That would make TV much more realistic and cooler to watch.

  3. That is awesome! You are right though, that thing would be deadly if it shot off since it is spinning so fast.

    The 3D running guy was way cool. I agree with Atrus and think we will eventually get to a point where we do watch 3D movies produced in a similar fashion.
