Interactive 3D Display: Its Here!

Via Ohgizmo:

Originally mentioned at Gizmodo as a prototype in 2003, IO2 Technology has just completed the production unit and provided the details behind the revolutionary HelioDisplay which produces interactive 3D dsiplays in thin air (via lasers) from common sources.

The HelioDisplay technology page lists some of its remarkable features:

Inputs from most regular sources: PC,TV, DVD, HDTV, Video game consoles
Projects a 22″ to 42″ (depending on model) diagonal image that floats above the device
It is interactive, like a virtual touch screen: a hand or finger can act as a mouse
Although the HelioDisplay uses lasers, the images are not holographic
Possible uses for this product include advertising, entertainment facilities, design prototyping, teleconferencing etc. Obviously the applications for such a product are endless. Most importantly it may convince my wife to finally allow the purchase of the Brooke Burke Swimsuit calendar for testing purposes! This of course relies heavily on pricing (TBD) and other more, um, personal matters.

Apparently the product is ready for release; visit the product page here which looks like its being updated right now. Visit the IO2TECHNOLOGY company homepage here.
