Ok i just got an idea when i was drawing with my tablet.

Ok sorry for the pics, i uploaded several pics at once on images shack so i cant show them on the forum but here are the links.

It is an 3D Tablet wich creates an illusion of a object sticking out of the tablet, see the pics.

Image 1

Image 2

Image 3

So basicly there are 3 lcd screens and a head tracking camera (not in the pictures).

You make the shape with your fingers on the bottom lcd screen (touch) and drag it up.

Each screen shows some part of the shape you made and the head tracking camera rotates it if you turn.


If you have seen something like this before please tell me.

Tell me what you think, constructive critism please.

Edit: Dammit i posted in the random section, move it please?

Edit 2: Ohh and i think i got some typos in my pictures.

You don't need 3 screens anyway btw, only one! You'd also need to track the eye position of the person compared to the hand position.

... and check this out:

Wouldn't it be very expensive to use holographic technolog?

And if you got 3 screens you can make "bigger" things and you can look much more around.

Well, 3D holographic technology doesn't exist and doesn't make sense. (Where'd the light particles hit?)
What a volumetric display is is multiple fan-blades spinning with LEDs on them and the LEDs turning on and off at precise timing. Requires advanced software, not very handy, not very expensive either.

Maniac, your screen system would look no more 3D than the LED TVs we have at home currently. The 3D effect is achieved with depth of field which means the eye focuses on one thing and blurs another out. It's "Virtually" achieved with apertures within camera equipment, and current 3D technology bases itself around the principle of having a red/blue merge so one eye focuses on the red part and the other on the blue part. It works effectively but not perfectly, but it's currently the best way to achieve this and the only beneficial one achieved as of yet.

However your idea isn't as far-fetched as you may think.
It may not have anything to do with 3D, but gamers use multiple screens to get a better view of their enemies.

It's not used within home TV, movies or anything else because it'd be completely pointless.

That's a 2D screen you mup, with head tracking software.
You can download that for Half Life. All you need is a source game and a webcam.
Head tracking API, that's what it's called.
