Intel was in London on Wednesday showing off some of its latest innovations at its Future Showcase event. One of these that caught the eye was a floating display proof of concept powered by the firm's RealSense technology built into a Creative camera.
The experimental device shows how a holographic display could be used in a kiosk or in public places where people would not want to touch a display for fear of spreading or picking up germs.
It is also more secure, as details that are being projected on the screen can be seen only from the direct viewpoint of the user.
The icons projected into the field of view can be controlled in the same way as on a physical touchscreen.
The device is not planned to reach the market, but is a way for Intel to showcase how this sort of technology might be used in the future.
