    Magic Leap, A new tech for 3-D imagery

    *Obligatory "I want this" inserted.

    A startup is betting more than half a billion dollars that it will dazzle you with its approach to creating 3-D imagery.

    Availability: 1-3 years
    Of course, I bring him as near as possible; I want to see how real he looks up close. Now he’s about 30 inches from my eyeballs and, though I’ve made him pocket-sized, looks about as authentic as a monster could—he seems to have rough skin, muscular limbs, and deep-set beady eyes. I extend my hand to give him a base to walk on, and I swear I feel a tingling in my palm in expectation of his little feet pressing into it. When, a split second later, my brain remembers that this is just an impressively convincing 3-D image displayed in the real space in front of me, all I can do is grin.

    Seems only you want it. No one else is commenting on this article.
    Do think you movie theaters will adopt this first before making it into our living rooms?

      Well, I'm still a kid at heart I guess.

      Regarding the device, movie theaters and living rooms...I may be off, but I'm picturing 3D without the glasses, and with much more depth.

      Someday anyway.

        The next morning, though, he awoke with an idea: why bother with the painstaking steps needed to send a hologram out into a room for multiple people to see at once? Why not, instead, essentially make a hologram that only you see, doing it in a way that is natural for the eyes and brain to perceive, unlike stereoscopic 3-D?

        Images tailored to a single individual aren't really good for movie theatres.
