Woah, is that real? O.O



Apparently it's in Australia and opened on June 4th. It reminds me of virtual reality but with holograms.

I am skeptical though because the video author disabled ratings and comments.

It looks like they're just projecting images on all walls and use 3D glasses to give those images depth. Technology like that already exists quite long, but as far as I know, it never has been used commercially until now. They're not really holograms though.

It looks interesting, but I doubt that the quality will be comparable to VR.

DJ Omnimaga

I guess the video is misleading then. But it seemed like the person could sometimes hold holographic objects? And yeah I doubt it will ever match VR.

I think the HoloLens works somewhere close to that, but I can't see the video. D:
Does this qualify as a signature? 
The answer is "Sure."

I think the youtube embedder plugin is just acting weird. If you quote his post, you can see the link:

I think it just uses the 3D screens, a tracked controller and head tracking to make the objects appear in the same position as the controller. Unlike actual holograms, this would also mean that only 1 person can view everything correctly.

Yeah I think Youtu.be SSL certificate is invalid, which is why browsers block the embedded video. The full URL is fine.
