Touchscreens, holograms, and keyboards have nothing on this fog machine and tabletop display in one. Dubbed the MisTable, the fog-like, 3D projections are see through, and llows user interaction unlike 2D systems like your smartphone. You can use the 2D screen to presenting visual information whilst simultaneously presenting a 3D, malleable, and interoperable mist.
Subramanian said, “Users can also move content freely between these interaction spaces. Moving content between the tabletop and the personal screen allow users to share it with others or to get exclusive ownership over it. The research team believe MisTable could support new forms of interaction and collaboration in the future.”
This kind of interface and technology can be used for presentations, but it can very lucrative for gaming experiences: Holodeck, anyone?
