I'm a fan of innovation in technology, large leaps etc.

Would it be feasible to create some sort of low-cost high-frequency sonar system that you could use in your home to detect 3-dimensional bodies and allow them to interact with digital information?

All comments appreciated. Also, if there was a way to DIY this shit, feel even more welcome.

I feel useless here

*leaves*
Blindfolds aside I'd probably still close my eyes

And try to feel a trembling fetal life inside
that shotgun barrel that's about to make me bleed

Like an ulcer in the stomach of the beast

They already have something similar, it also allows you to feel the holographic object. It's not cheap though.

You could probably do somthing like that with optics or infared. Just somthing to triangulate your position relative to the projector and react accordingly.

Defenately woulden't be cheap and it's iffy if the hardware is there yet.

Do you know the name or the name of the project's creators?

I'm trying to do some research so that I might be able to construct something similar. Even if it's abilities may be limited by cost...

I don't. I would have most likely seen it on www.newscientist.com, or less likely, www.howstuffworks.com.

You should be able to google it. I'd help you out, but I am stuck at work and my activity is logged. lol

What exactly do you mean by interacting with information in 3D?


i.e. in the movie Iron Man, when he's disassembling the 3-dimensional blueprint of his prototypical suit with his hands above some sort of holographic platform. But I'm thinking just the image on the screen, not projected in 3D.
