Holographic projections often require the use of VR goggles or AR gimmicks, but the Looking Glass display promises 3D virtual imagery without the use of any vision augmenting hardware. Instead, this feat is pulled off using a proprietary lenticular display that blends 45 angles of any given 3D figure into a single point. This allows viewers to view the model from the front, sides, top, and bottom with results far better than any existing conventional 3D displays.
The Looking Glass display is still not quite ready for the commercial market but its applications are already being considered in professions that rely on CAD modeling, including architecture, industrial design, and even game design. The Looking Glass display also has the capability to connect to a Nintendo Switch joycon or a Leap Controller letting users interact with models in a more intuitive and organic way.
