Three Pint Princess 2

Finally, Proper 3d Tv

Recommended Posts

http://www.reghardware.co.uk/2009/08/27/pc...ography_system/

Scientists in Japan have built a computer capable of generating holographic images from three-dimensional models composed of up to a million points.

But don't expect holographic messages from alluring princesses any time soon: the machine can only render million-point holograms at a single frame every second.

Drop the complexity of the image to 100,000 points and the frame rate rises to 10f/s, "near video rate", the team from the Tokyo University of Technology, Chiba University and the Kisarazu National College of Technology said in a paper published by the Optical Society of America.

This looks like what we all imagine 3D TV to be, hopefully it gets off the ground :o

I'd be happy to continue watching 2D tv if there was anything worth watching.

I saw a holographic 'TV' device about 24 years ago in the Trocadero Games Centre in Picadily Circus. Basically is was a small arena like object (about 2 feet in diameter) with a plasic done on top, and in the middle were perfect holographic miniture people fighting with swords. (No I wasn't on drugs or drinking and I was with other firends).

The machine mysteriously disappeared after a few weeks never to be seen or heard of again, but it was the most amazing thing I've ever seen.

perhaps two people were actually playing with swords downstairs in an area and it was just projected with mirrors?

I saw something similar. It was strange alien creatures on a circular chess type board. A very hairy man that growled to communicate won the game.

yes, it might have been a circular chess board covered with a see-through plastic dome. I don't think it was a projection with mirrors because it was an actual video game that two people were playing (with a lot of people watching). I.e. the two players seemed to be controlling the movements of the holographic fighters. Quite amazing, but at the time we were constantly being amazed by new technologies and new video games, so I didn't think too much of it (until I later realised that this technology was something very special indeed - by which time it had disappeared).

Sorry, I was taking the pish. I'm on about a scene in Star Wars. :P

I saw this too! In blackpool, when I was a kid. I was amazed, and thought thats how all arcade games would be within a couple of years. Then I never saw it, or anything similar again... :blink:

Hallelujah!!! How long ago was this for you? This happened 24 years ago for me. I too thought that it was amazing but like you, I thought 'what the hell, things are changing so fast these days... all games will be like this soon!'.

It's only much, MUCH later I realised that THAT particular technology was WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY ahead of its time!

Only possible explanation is that the Military got involved and hid it away, never be seen again :(

Edit: By the way, what I saw makes that Japanese invention look like the pathetic blunderings of a two year old engineer with lego.

It wouldve been about the same time..i wouldve been 8 at the time...

Ive done some searching..and found this

Theres a wikipedia page too here

it -looks- like the game i remember..but as far as i remember the cabinet was flat, and the characters were dancing on top of it, under the glass dome you spoke of..

As far as i remember the cab was white though

Maybe time has twisted our memories..

still looks pretty cool though

To add something, looks like it only has a 5º viewing angle

An Aurora Systems ASI6201 was used as the reflective LCD. The size of the LCD is

M = 1,920×1,080, and the dot pitch is p = 6.4μm. The distance between the LCD and the

reconstruction image is 1 m, and the viewing angle is approximately 5â—¦.

3D TV fails before it is born.

There is no need or real advantage to it.

You can just bet that when they finally got it to work, some lab assistant 'worked late' that night and spent the time using it to display porn,
