Holocube Now Big Enough to Project a Human-Size Hologram

 |  |  |  |  January 21, 2011

The first time we saw the Holocube, the thing had a 20-inch screen that could show small “holograms” that looked really cool. The system has since been upgraded with a larger screen that can handle images that are the size of a 6-foot-tall adult. I will say the thing is more than a little creepy looking.

The screen on the device is now 70-inches, and is powered by a computer that runs a dual core Intel processor at 2.8GHz. The video content from the device is stored to a 40GB SSD that can store 18 hours of uncompressed digital video.

The computer is dedicated to the running of the Holobox alone and will do nothing other than run the hologram system. It uses a projector that has a resolution of 1080 x 1920 and 600 cd/m2 brightness. Exactly how much this thing will cost is unknown, but it won’t be cheap.
