360 Degree Holographic 3D Prints And No Glasses Required

March 7th, 2011 · 4 Comments · Other S3D Tech


Here is something interesting made by an European company called Mindblowing, this is a three-dimensional model of a few buildings designed in AutoCAD and printed on special 2-dimensional surface, creating a 360 degree 3D-dimensional hologram like print that can be viewed without the need of any kind of 3D glasses. They utilize a technology called ZScape, developed by Zebra Imaging, and it sure looks really impressive, but is also quite expensive. The price of a single large print can go pretty much at the level of a not so expensive autostereoscopic 3D display for example, so these prints, although looking very cool, are not something that is intended for normal users – they are meant for professionals like architects, designers etc. You will surely impress your customers by showing them such a print from a 3D model of a project you have designed for them, before actually starting to work on a building or whatever the project is about. What do you think about these 360 degree Holographic 3D prints?

    Very cool, there are some more videos here…

    Looks like one day soon we actually will have real glasses-free holographic displays. This looks amazing, I had no idea the technology has come this far. As with all tech, price at this time is irrelevant.

    Then surely, until the price drops, you would by a “not so expensive autostereoscopic 3D display” which could be used for presentations to more than one client?

    It’s very good looking but it’s nothing new, it’s just an hologram using a good technique. You can also have a look at the butterflies in this one which look as good, the technique used here has been invented 10 years ago (2001) :
