Sony 360-Degree Volumetric Display: the Stuff Sci-Fi Dreams Are Made of

by Paul Strauss

Sony just introduced a video demonstrating this amazing new 360-degree display technology that’s something you might find in a James Cameron movie.


The new autostereoscopic display projects 360 individual slices of an image onto an array of special LEDs, providing a volumetric display you can walk around and view from any angle – without glasses. It can even recognize gestures, allowing you to manipulate the object displayed on screen.

Check it out in the demo video below:

If you happen to be at SIGGRAPH 2010 in Los Angeles between July 25th and 29th, you’ll be able to see the Sony 360-degree display in action at the Emerging Technologies section of the show.

    This is pretty cool, though the resolution is kinda low. I imagine they could improve that in time. The one major issue is that recording an actual person requires a very complex and limiting rig.

    Just like basic 3D technology, its there, but who cares, the media hasn’t caught up yet. I don’t even think Avatar was worth seeing in 3D. But now with the 3DS coming out, once that technology has improved for larger viewing and the Kinect is designed to match or a complete holoimaging unit that has a large horizontal surface area. Then I may care, for now its just something to advertise new items on. When it becomes cheap, porn will be the first to use it extensively.

    when and how much will a 36” display cost, and where will the content come from?
