This is not an illusion.
Looking Glass Volume works by suspending millions of points of light in a physical 3D space with no moving parts.
And since you don’t need headgear to experience volumetric display technology, groups of people of all ages can come together to experience something that’s future AF.
More 3D than that Tupac hologram.
We’re sorry to break it to you, but the “Holograms” like the ones of Tupac or Michael Jackson aren’t actually holograms. In fact, they aren’t three-dimensional at all. They use an illusion developed in the 1800s called Pepper’s Ghost (a 2D reflection). Great for theatrical display or the interwebs, but not so great in person.
Looking Glass Volume actually displays 3D content.
Chasing the dream of holograms.
While Looking Glass Volume’s optical hardware and software system is fundamentally different from that used in holograms, Looking Glass Volume is closer to the dream of the hologram than anything you’ve seen before. Our volumetric display technology is called Lightfolding®, in which millions of pixels are channeled into a 3D volume, thereby creating a true 3D display.
Yes, it's safe to look at.
Looking Glass Volume is ridiculously safe to look at. It places points of light in actual three-dimensional space right where that light would be if it was coming from a real object.
So it’s safe to look at a 3D unicorn in Looking Glass Volume as it would be to look at a real unicorn. Probably safer.
