People love their smartphones, and it’s hard to remember how we actually managed to get anything done in the past with only our dumbphones. Check out this interesting digital art installation from Japan that highlights smartphones.
Japanese designer Yuri Endo developed Luminogeist as the final phase in his thesis project at IDAS. The installation uses glass prisms which reassemble 3D image components from the mobile displays below. The prisms allow the extraction what’s being shown on the smartphone’s screen, making them look almost like floating holograms. Check it out, it’s pretty cool:
I wonder if this technique could be used with tablets or flat panel TVs to display floating images inside of even larger prisms.
