RePro3D enables users to “touch” projected 3D images

by Gavril Mankoo

Holographic images have long since projected and have somewhat turned into common-place technology today. However, taking 3D technology and projections systems to a new height, the Keio University unveiled the RePro3D, a system that enables users to literally touch 3D characters floating in midair. Using a mechanically-controlled model environment, a tactile interface and a glasses-free 3D integral imaging display, the RePro3D uses an infrared camera to recognize the movements of the user’s hand, and the character on screen reacts to the movements accordingly! This could revolutionize the gaming and entertainment industry in the near future and we sure as hell can’t wait for the next gaming console with touchable characters.
