Microsoft Vermeer: 3D holographic screen and touch

Microsoft made a demonstration of his research on the holographic screen.

Microsoft Labs engineers do not look like other Star Wars. When they see the holograms, they turn to the challenge of reproducing this futuristic technology. Fruit of their work, Vermeer is a touchscreen holographic and 3D. With a set of mirrors and a volumetric display system, the images are displayed in the space and the Kinect sensor (with an infrared sensor placed at the bottom of the sphere) is used for interaction with the user. By projecting 2880 images, Vermeer will display the equivalent of a film led to 15 images per second. The prototype of Vermeer is visible in this video from Microsoft. It is very impressive, perhaps even more than was the demonstration of the Holodesk.
