New Delhi: Technological advances have dramatically transformed our lives. Yet, with the never-ending change to technology, over the next decade we might see a slew of all new products that we hardly imagine today.
Researchers at the Queen’s University Human Media Lab, Ontario, had created what they claim is the “world’s first holographic flexible smartphone” display. Called the HoloFlex, the display is capable of rendering 3D images with motion parallax and stereoscopy to multiple simultaneous users without head tracking or glasses.
“HoloFlex offers a completely new way of interacting with your smartphone. It allows for without glass interactions with 3D video and images in a way that does not encumber the user.” says Sir Roel Vertegaal, Professor of HCI at Queen’s School of Computing and director of the Human Media Lab.
The device features a 1920×1080 full Length high-definition Flexible Organic Light Emitting Diode (FOLED) touchscreen display.
“Images are rendered into 12-px wide circular blocks rendering the full view of the 3D object from a particular viewpoint. These pixel blocks project through a 3 Dimension printed flexible micro lens array consisting of over 16,000 fisheye lenses. The eventuating 160 x 104 resolution image allows users to inspect a 3D object from any angle simply by rotating the phone,” adds a press release from Human Media Lab.
