The Heliodisplay was invented by Mr. The current version of the Heliodisplay projects a 22″ to 42″ depending on model diagonal image that floats above the device.

There is also an interactive version called the M3i. Like any computer monitor or TV, images appear brighter the lower the ambient light.

As dark areas of the image may appear invisible, the image may be more realistic than on a projection screenalthough it is still not volumetric. Heliodisplay images appear 3D when viewed from more than a few feet away because there is no physical depth reference. The original system used a CMOS camera and IR laser to track the position of a finger in mid-air and update the projected image to enable the first of its kind co-located display with mid-air controller interface.

But they have less fidelity than the future systems although adopted various ion-discharge plates [3] and showcased in Nothing is added to the air so there isn’t any harmful gas or liquid emitted from the device.

The air-based system is formed by a series of metal plates, and the original Heliodisplay could run for several hours although current models can operate continuously.

The original M1 units produced by IO2 were advanced prototypes and proof-of-concept. Heliodisplay can operate as a free-space touchscreen when the equipment is ordered as an interactive unit with embedded sensors in the equipment. Dyner, who built it as a five-inch interactive prototype in before patenting the free-space display technology.


The exact details of its workings are unknown, pending patent applications. It does not require any screen or substrate other than air to project its image, but it does eject a water-based vapour curtain for the image to be projected upon. The XL model is a separate system that supports larger format images beyond the 2 meter range. The M30 is the updated version of the M3, which fits into the current model numbering system, 30 designating the diagonal screen size.

The larger equipment such as the systems that project life-size people capable of image diagonals up to 2. Although the Heliodisplay uses lasers, the images are not holographic. Heliodisplay images are easily viewed in an office environment. As ofno computer or drivers are required. Viewing requires no special glasses.

With the supplied software installed, one jeliodisplay use a finger, pen, or another object as cursor control and navigate or interact with simple content.

Dark background emphasizes the contrast of the image and is highly encouraged when designing a location to view the display. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. They have all the above said properties. The curtain is produced using similar documejtation technology as used in foggers and comprises a number of columns of fog. This curtain is sandwiched between curtains of clean air to create an acceptable screen.

Power consumption for the base tower 2 meter version is as energy efficient as doucmentation legacy models and consumes around watts. Views Read Edit View history. These are the first Heliodisplay developed by the IO2 Technology.

The image is display into two-dimensional space i. Though due to the turbulent nature of the curtain, not currently suitable as a workstation. The new third-generation M3 version launched on February 28, [5] has the same basic specifications as the M2 but is said to be much quieter, with improved brightness and clarity and more stable operation with an improved tri-flow system. The screen is safe for human interaction and will not cause any harm of any kind. Multimodal interaction Display technology companies Computer peripherals.


The Heliodisplay connects to a computer at least: The system developed by IO2 Technology in uses a projection unit focused onto multiple layers of air and dry micron-size atomized particles in mid-air, resulting in a two-dimensional display that appears to float 3d when using 3d content.

These projected images and video are actually two-dimensional but appear 3D since there is no physical depth reference. Viewing any type of display in direct sunlight is almost impossible and also applies to the Heliodisplay. This is similar in principle to the cinematic technique of rear projection and can appear three-dimensional when using appropriate content. A hand or finger documentatioh act as a mouse.

The display can create a true 3D hologram effect when the right content is used. It works as a kind of floating touch screen, making it possible to manipulate images projected in air with your fingers, and can be connected heiodisplay a computer using a standard VGA connection. Helipdisplay image performance fidelity and stability was further improved.

However the system does allow for multiple viewing and dual viewing back and front when combined with two light sources. The heliodisplay is an interactive planar display. No special glove or pointing device is required. Like any rear projection system, the images are best seen within 70 degrees to either side.

Apart from displaying at a standard ratio of 4: The second-generation M2 Heliodisplay supports a 30″ image with Making Something Out of Nothing.
