3D Floating Holographic Displays: Now a reality!

Yes you are not dreaming, these displays and the technology for these diplays has been finally perfected! IO2 Technologies have developed displays under the Brand Heliodisplay, which projects any standard computer or video cable attached to the Heliodisplay system, and project video or images into mid-air.

Various models are available ranging sizes from 30″, 50″ and 100″ (diagonal) areas. The ‘i” version allows for a “virtual” touchscreen (new for December 2007). No special hardware or software is required to view images. The 30″ Heliodisplay is now only 5.9″ tall, and weighs 15lbs. The 50″ and 100″ are each only 10″ tall and weigh 28lbs, and 68lbs respectively. All afford a wide range of flexibility and options.


The new M3 / M3i boasts “an improved tri-flow system for increased image stability and uniformity,” enhanced brightness and clarity, a 1,024 x 768 resolution, 16:9 or 4:3 aspect ratios, 2000:1 contrast ratio, VGA / S-Video / composite inputs, USB, NTSC / PAL compatibility, and “significantly quieter operation” to boot.

Marketed to the uber-wealthy and board room runners who’d like to teleconference on a free-space device (and blow the minds of clients), the basic M3 is available for a stiff $18,400, while the M3i — which also serves as a “computer input device for cursor control in a desktop environment” — will set you back a whooping $19,400.

Heliocast ™ interactivity:

When the Heliodisplay is connected to a PC using a standard USB cable, and with the supplied IO2 Heliocast software installed, you can use your finger for touchscreen control to navigate and interact with content such as drag & drop, clicking, double clicking etc as one would on a standard PC. This is available starting December 2007. Remember Minority Report ?!
