INTRODUCTION Even though modern technology has invested millions, even billions, into projection screen technology, high definition projectors, and even projectors for our cell phones, we have forgotten that we will always need something to project on. Unfortunately, with the tragic proliferation of advertising these days, we are probably looking at a future world where all the space on the buildings is taken for billboards and other various projected ads. The only place that would not be taken is the spaces that people walk through. However, that is an option that we can use, with the Heliodisplay projector. The below fig1. Fig 1.

Tygok Though due to the turbulent nature of the curtain, not currently suitable as a workstation. Image recovery time is under 1. Heliodisplay can operate as a free-space touchscreen when the equipment is ordered as an interactive unit with embedded sensors in the equipment. Heliosisplay original M1 units produced by IO2 were advanced prototypes and proof-of-concept. They have all the above said properties. This curtain is sandwiched between curtains of clean air to create an acceptable screen.
The Heliodisplay is an air-based display using principally air that is already present in the operating environment room or space. The Heliodisplay was invented by Mr. The system is compatible with most video sources currently available. The curtain is produced using similar ultrasonic technology as used in foggers and comprises a number of columns of fog.
Images can be seen up to 75 degrees off aspect for a total viewing area of over degrees- similar to an LCD screen. But they have less fidelity than the future systems although adopted various ion-discharge plates  and showcased in Dyner, who built it as a five-inch interactive prototype in before patenting the free-space display technology.
Heliodisplay — Wikipedia The new third-generation M3 version launched on February 28,  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.
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 to a computer using a standard VGA connection. Conventional displays have the benefit of being enclosed in a solid frame or case with lights shining directly towards the audience.
As ofno computer or drivers are required. However the system does allow for multiple viewing and dual viewing back and front when combined with two light sources. Heliodisplay images are not holographic although they are free-space, employing a rear projection system in which images are captured onto a nearly invisible plane of transformed air. The display can create a true 3D hologram effect when the right content is used.
The interactive M2i version includes virtual touchscreen capability. No special glove or pointing device is required. Apart from displaying at a standard ratio of 4: Like any rear projection system, the images are best seen within 70 degrees to either side.
The M30 is the updated version of the M3, which fits into the current model numbering system, 30 designating the diagonal screen size. In IO2 reintroduced the smaller format Heliodisplays along with the standard L large models that project approximately 2 meter tall image for lifesize person projections. With the supplied software installed, one can use a finger, pen, or another object as cursor control and navigate or interact with simple content.
A hand or finger can act as a mouse. Making Something Out of Nothing. 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.
The image is display into two-dimensional space i. Heliodisplay images appear 3D when viewed from more than a few feet away because there is no physical depth reference. The Heliodisplay is an invention by Chad Dyner, who built it as a 5-inch prototype in hrliodisplay apartment before founding IO2 technologies to further develop the product. The exact details of its workings are unknown, pending patent applications.
The Heliodisplay is a free space display developed by IO2 Technology. A projector is focused onto a layer of mist in mid-air, resulting in a two-dimensional display that appears to float. As dark areas of the image may appear invisible, the image may be more realistic than on a projection screen. A PC sees the Heliodisplay as a pointing device, like a mouse. With the supplied software installed, one can use a finger, pen, or another object as cursor control and navigate or interact with simple content.

Fegar Though due to the turbulent nature of the curtain, not currently suitable as a workstation. The screen is safe for human interaction and will not cause any harm of any kind. Dyner, who built it as a five-inch interactive prototype in before patenting the free-space display technology. Image recovery time is under 1. There is also an interactive version called the M3i. Power consumption for the base tower 2 meter version is as energy efficient as the legacy models and consumes around watts. Heliodisplay images appear 3D when viewed from more than a few feet away because there is no physical depth reference.
