New Giant Holocube Kills 3D

January 24, 2011, By Christian Cawley

Whether your 3D hardware requires polarized or anaglyphic glasses or you can successfully attain a three dimensional image without any additional hardware (such as the Nintendo 3DS) the fact remains that you can’t walk around it like you might a hologram of, say Princess Leia Organa.

Holocube to kill 3D?

That is all set to change, however as Holocube unveil a brand new version of their “hologram in a box” (hence the name) with a massive 70-inch screen that can be viewed from both sides. It might not be a holographic projection courtesy of R2-D2, but it’s a step in the right direction.

This particularly Holocube is the HC70, which features 40 GB flash storage and the ability to store 8 to 18 hours of video, displayed in high definition with a 1080p projector.

For those of you currently hating on Windows right now, the Holocube HC70 runs on Windows 7 Embedded, effectively putting it on a par with a brand new ATM. It’s amazing what Windows can do, but won’t it be even more amazing to be able to head down to the bank and conduct a transaction with a hologram of a lady in Japan?
