Making Interactive Displays Smarter

Craft & Design Technology

In this video, Steven Bathiche from Microsoft Applied Sciences shows off some imaging and human interface technologies that are currently under development at Microsoft. They’re working on something called an optical wedge, which they’re using to add a Z dimension to touch screens and deliver 3D images to your eyes without the need for glasses. Along with a Kinect for head tracking, these optical wedges can also deliver two separate images to two people watching the same screen. After seeing all the amazing Kinect hacks from the maker community, I’m hoping that we’ll see a hackable consumer version of this technology soon. [via Engadget]
