New 3D Vapor Displays- OR Versions to Come
Engadget reports on IO2 Displays new M3 Heliodisplay system.Â I have written before on these systems and played with them a bit (here is a video of my furry arm in one).Â They are similar in many ways to fogscreen (video here) in that they all display a pseudo floating image on a film of water vapor fog.Â Newer versions add gesture controlled interactvity.Â I cannot stress enought how muchÂ I believe gesture control will transform surgery.
The new version claims an improved tri-flow system for increased image stability and uniformity,” enhanced brightness and clarity, a 1,024 x 768 resolution, 16:9 or 4:3 aspect ratios, 2000:1 contrast ratio.
Right now these are party gizmos and great for promotional booths.Â I predict future implementations of endoscopic surgery will employ floating 3-D images with gesture control. A theme I have been preachingÂ loudly as I write on futuresurgery.
