Project Your Display into Thin Air

December 1st, 2005

IO2 Technology have developed a projector capable of displaying images in mid air without a screen!

It claims to work by modifying the air so that it can act as a screen but without adding any chemicals to it. The projector has been termed the Heliodisplay by IO2 Technology. From their website:

Operating the device will not change a room’s environment, air quality or other conditions. Air comes into the device, is modified then ejected and illuminated to produce the image. Nothing is added to the air so there isn’t any harmful gas or liquid emitted from the device. If a Heliodisplay were left running for a week in a hermetically sealed room, the only change to the room`s environment would be from the electricity used to run the device. Although the Heliodisplay uses lasers, the images are not holographic.

What’s more is that the display is interactive and can be used as a ‘touch screen’. The Heliodisplay connects to a computer via USB and a hand or finger acts as a mouse.

IO2 Technology expects that their projection system will find applications in:

tradeshows
museums
retail stores
advertising
shopping malls
corporate lobbies
