Originally mentioned at Gizmodo as a prototype in 2003, IO2 Technology has just completed the production unit and provided the details behind the revolutionary HelioDisplay which produces interactive 3D dsiplays in thin air (via lasers) from common sources.

Inputs from most regular sources: PC,TV, DVD, HDTV, video game consoles. Projects a 22″ to 42″ (depending on model) diagonal image that floats above the device. It is interactive, like a virtual touch screen: a hand or finger can act as a mouse. Although the HelioDisplay uses lasers, the images are not holographic.



See also the Slashdot story from August 2k5:

>It actually works by shooting a mist into the air and projecting an image onto said mist.

So the DoS attack against this is a ceiling fan?
