Have you heard about the Kinect Holodesk?

The Holodeck was made popular by Star Trek TNG, but now several people at Microsoft Research lab are working on the Kinect Holodesk. But what is this strange technology? Basically it’s a system that combine an optical transparent display that uses the Kinect to create the clever illusion of a user interacting with 3D graphics.
 


 

The 3D rendered scene is then displayed through a half silvered mirror and this allows people to reach under the mirror and interact with the projected 3D objects in various ways. Did I lose you at the Holodesk point? If so, then take a hop, skip and jump to check out the video. It’s completely astounding and amazing the way technology is advancing and by adding the Kinect, the possibilities are endless.
