Samsung: Holodeck coming, 40-incher running now

OK, it’s not quite Star Trek’s holodeck, but Samsung’s displaying a 40-inch holographic display at the SID conference in Seattle this week.

It’s based on an LCD panel and a set of mirrors in a case that’s about 30 inches deep.IMAG0059.jpg

A Samsung representative wouldn’t explain exactly how it works or when it could come to market. The demonstration featured a 3-D spinning cube and Samsung logo that appeared to float in space before bursting into a shower of light.

Comments | Topics: 3D, Digital TV, holodeck
