Box of Dreams
A 3D display capable of portraying anything -- even your dreams.
WINNER: 3rd place
WINNER: Top 10
The volumetric display was created by channeling fog generated by an ultrasonic mister through a pipe, directed by straws downward to form a fog column, into which we projected 3 separate rendered views of the object in question. We used a kinect to acquire facial data in 3 dimensions and processed it from multiple perspectives. By displaying each perspective on its own projector, we managed to reconstruct the 3D object, in this case a face, within the fog column. In addition, we also wrote a program to render any video on this display.
