3D in real life

Finally, groups of people can relive memories and peer into new worlds in 3D at the same time. No VR headsets required.

Plug and play

Simply power up over USB-C to find yourself in hologram land. Works with your Mac and PC, or completely standalone.

Create your own

Create an infinite loop of holographic photos and video messages from the future with our easy-to-use software.

Radically light

Revolutionary optics and software make for a new class of holographic display light in both weight and price.

Bring any photograph
to three-dimensional life.

Capture holograms from your phone

Portrait Mode photos contain depth information that are hologram-friendly. Our HoloPlay Studio application transforms your photos into the dozens of perspectives needed for easy viewing in the Looking Glass Portrait.

Two modes of operation.
The Looking Glass just works, with or without your computer.

Standalone Mode

Traditionally, holographic displays have required powerful gaming rigs to run—until now. Looking Glass Portrait hardware can operate standalone, with its built-in computer able to display lightweight holographic media at an exceptional level of quality.

  • Run up to 1,000 pieces of holographic media, standalone and untethered.

  • Create and configure playlists, which store and run holographic photos and videos on an infinite loop.

Desktop Mode

For those looking to supercharge their 3D creation workflows, Looking Glass Portrait also becomes a powerful holographic second monitor. Compatible with both PC and Mac.

  • Create, edit, and import holographic media with HoloPlay Studio.

  • Run applications including our Azure Kinect experimental recording tool.

  • Build your own experiences with plugins for Unity, Unreal, and Blender.

Includes a full 3D software toolkit.

Tech Specifications

When we invented the first holographic light field display back in 2018, we estimated that within ten years over ten million people would have one, if they only understood its benefits. The interfaces of the future wouldn’t be worn on your head 16 hours a day, but they would be more like campfires, glowing with three-dimensional fields of light that you could gather around with others. Sometimes in the same room, other times a world apart. With the Looking Glass Portrait, that future is closer than ever. We'll see you there.

Looking Glass Portrait
Your holograms await.
