My 3D holographic display arrived yesterday, and I'm so busy I haven't opened it yet.
Sometime this weekend I'll inbox it and put it through its paces. And then do a whole bunch of catching up— the Discord community is full of folks wife had their hands on a unit for months, before the major supply shortages.
What excites be the most though is, the unit has a Raspberry Pi driving it, so I'm hoping there are ways I can program it to render something interesting in isolation, unplugged from any computer.
Of course, it could all be a gimmick. But for as long as I remember, I wanted to live in an age of digital holographics! 🤩
@rezmason like even if i make animations or lightfield portraits it's like, i have to ask people to come look at a little box
@_ I totally agree.
And let's be frank— most folks nowadays make tech buying decisions online, rather than in a physical store, and the Looking Glass devices are notorious for not being easily demonstrable online. I don't see how they'll sell more units without tackling this obstacle.
@_ The value I get out of it personally (besides, you know, healing my inner child) will mainly come from wrapping my head around its methodology, and then converting some of my existing projects ( https://rezmason.net/projects ) to leverage it.
But this is not a "use case". This is tech for tech's sake. 😅 I very rarely do this!
