This is one of those "why didn't someone think of this before?" type of products. Mark Wilson of Fast Company got to try zSpace, a new design tablet with a 3D display and head-tracking technology. zSpace tracks both the 3D glasses and a stylus with IR cameras to adjust the perspective of 3D models as users move their head, giving the illusion of an interactive holographic image. Theoretically, artists would be able to view and tweak 3D models like Tony Stark in the Iron Man movies.
We’ve all been envious of Iron Man. Not just the suit--that’s fine and all--but what really blows my mind are his amazing drafting stations, complete with interactive 3-D wireframe projections. Last week, I spent about an hour playing with a system called zSpace , a new display by Infinite Z that makes these sorts of Iron Man interactions a reality. And while I walked into the meeting a skeptic, I walked out realizing that these holographic interfaces aren’t just the future; if you have $6,000 to purchase your own, they’re today. zSpace looks like a supersized tablet, a Wacom that mated with an ergonomic breakfast tray that’s eaten a few too many helpings of biscuits and gravy. Inside the frame sits a 24-inch 3-D display.
