Nettlebox launches real-time 3D hologram device

Russian tech firm Nettlebox has set tongues wagging with the debut of a holographic real-time 3d display that the firm believes could transform the gaming, exhibition and architecture sectors.

Consisting of a 3d plasma display surrounded by four fisheye lens infrared cameras the set up can track the movement of someone wearing a pair of 3d specs to present a stable visual environment which is sustained even with movement.

Set into a tabletop the gadget creates a sunken world rather than one bursting out into the living room but is nevertheless capable of sustaining the illusion even in ‘noisy’ environments.

Nettlebox co-founder Andrei Desyatov, said: “With this technology users can see a 3D screen from all viewpoints, from all angles, and see a 3D object in front of him. The brain believes that it’s a real object because the illusion is very strong. We are tracking the user’s position very fast.”

At a hefty $28,000 a pop however the gizmo isn’t likely to be gracing too many homes anytime soon but is expected to find a market at trade shows and exhibitions.
