Light Field Lab secures $ 28 million for holographic displays
The current investments should be used to transform the display from the prototype to a product. The goal is a display that can display virtual objects in real space, without the need for additional glasses or tracking. In short: Light Field Lab wants to make real holograms like from a science fiction movie. This is to be achieved by screens with a complex array of waveguides.
Since this technology is likely to be quite expensive, the company is focusing on modular video walls that can be used at larger events. In the future, however, one would also like to serve consumers.
“We want to offer an experience that is suitable for all households,” said CEO Karafin. “We start with large venues and great entertainment experiences that consumers can go to see. We will show that it is a totally interactive and social experience (…) “
