Like it or not, the future is upon us. Embrace it or not; things are constantly changing, updating, upgrading, and evolving around us. Back in 2018, Looking Glass debuted its first holographic display. Sure, it wasn’t practical for everyday use, but the company is looking to change everything.
Fast forward to 2020, and today we get a look at the Looking Glass Portrait Holographic Display. The Portrait is described as a “personal” holographic display. The device comes loaded with unique software that can make impressive holographs out of depth-mode shots from smartphones, panning videos, standard 3D files, and LiDAR rigs.
The device also includes support for interactive experiences via Unreal Engine. Oh, and if that wasn’t enough, the Portrait also supports holographic video captured by a Microsoft Azure Kinect, Intel RealSense depth camera, or iPhone X/11/12. Easy to use and easy to connect, the device can connect to a Mac or PC for full functionality. However, it can also operate on its own in a slideshow mode.
The Looking Glass Portrait Holographic Display is currently available on its own or in a creator bundle. The bundle will supply everything you need to get creative immediately. The creator bundle comes with a Kinect camera, custom stand, and photo rail.
Take a closer look at the device in the image up top and head over to Looking Glass’ Kickstarter campaign to find out all the details. In the meantime, keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more from the tech sector coming very soon.
