Laser Plasma Technology — The Future of 3D Display Technology

Burton Inc. is located in Japan, and are the first to succeed in developing True 3D Display using Laser plasma technology — Their device can create 3D images in mid-air.

The current available 3D holographic displays are based on having a “screen”, surface or substance (such as dust or water vapor) to intersect and interfere with the laser beam. The limitation of the visual field, and the physiological displeasure due to the misidentification of virtual images, being the most obvious drawbacks of the tech. Until now:

“Our display device uses the plasma emission phenomenon near the focal point of focused laser light. By controlling the position of the focal point in the x, y, and z axes, it displays real 3D images constructed by dot arrays in the air.” ~

According to Aerial Burton, this display can be used to help people in emergency situations, for example, power outage, earthquake or flood. People will be able to find evacuation routes and emergency supplies with the signalisation projected by this device. However, the 3D image’s resolution is not yet impressive, but for basic guidance display, it is excellent. But it is only a matter of time, right.
