Hands-On: Looking Glass Portrait Holographic Display

We go hands-on with a prototype of the Looking Glass Portrait, a self-contained holographic display that can show volumetric photos, video, and cg models without the use of 3D glasses. It’s the latest invention from Looking Glass Factory, and we chat with the company’s co-founder Shawn Frayne about how the display technology works and the process of turning portrait-mode photos into 3D images like what we’ve seen in science fiction films. Thanks to Looking Glass for loaning us this unit to test!

One thought on “Hands-On: Looking Glass Portrait Holographic Display

  1. Hey Norm,

    Happy New Year from lockdown 2.0 in the U.K.

    If you still have the looking glass prototype could you try using your stereo camera to create a real 3D video of the effect?
    I’m a big VR fan an love the tested 3D videos on Quest.
    I backed the portrait as soon as I saw the price, and am itching to try it out.

    Dave
