Recently, Euclideon has been showing off a prototype for a hologram table. New Atlas lays out all the details in a recent piece that includes an /extensive/ interview with CEO Bruce Dell, but here is the gist:
The table exploits the Unlimited Detail engine to display holograms for up to four users simultaneously, and all a user needs to wear is a set of glasses. According to New Atlas,
when you’re wearing these glasses, the table is able to track the position of each of your eyes, and build a custom image for each eye. Using frequency separation crystal films in both the table surface and the glasses, up to eight separate images can be sorted out from what looks to the naked eye like a jumble of colored light, allowing up to four people to experience a binocular stereo image that looks remarkably like the way holograms are depicted in Star Wars and a thousand other movies.
The current prototype is about 5 x 5 feet, and Euclidean predicts they will be able to sell it for around $47,000—and be available as soon as February, 2018. To learn more, watch the mockup video (which is as close as you’ll get to seeing the real thing for now) and dig into the interview with Euclideon CEO Bruce Dell for more technical information.
