Watch movies the Star Trek style, soon…
Surely many will remember Captain Kirk talking with his crew members in the USS Enterprise, in a very futuristic video conference that is projected somehow. They can even view 360° when having conversation. Well InnoVision Labs has made that nearly possible with their new ‘ready-for-sale’ product.
The pyramid-shaped product gets its images from Flash video files, otherwise known as FLV files. You feed those frames into it using simple USB memory devices. The images displayed are moving videos with multiple perspectives. This goes way beyond the still holographic images we’ve seen in the past.
The machine has a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels, and 1,280 x 1,024, uses three displays and strategically placed reflecting glass plates to give you a multi-perspective look at various objects. Not entirely a holographic projection using a small pod like in movies, but it is awfully near to those concept. Imagine watching HD movies with these!
