Jump to navigation Jump to search The Heliodisplay is an air-based display using principally air that is already present in the operating environment room or space. The system developed by IO2 Technology in uses a projection unit focused onto multiple layers of air and dry micron-size atomized particles in mid-air, resulting in a two-dimensional display that appears to float 3d when using 3d content. This is similar in principle to the cinematic technique of rear projection and can appear three-dimensional when using appropriate content. As dark areas of the image may appear invisible, the image may be more realistic than on a projection screen , although it is still not volumetric.

Welcome to iWave Systems Technologies Pvt. But now display technology has reached a stage where images can be displayed in thin air without the aid of a screen. A technology used for displaying images in thin air is called Heliodisplay. In the Heliodisplay, a projector is focused onto a layer of mist in mid-air, resulting in a two-dimensional display that appears to float.
A PC sees the Heliodisplay as a pointing device, like a mouse. With the supplied software installed, one can use a finger, pen, or another object as cursor control and navigate or interact with simple content.
The mist is formed by a series of metal plates, and the original Heliodisplay could run for several hours on one liter of tap water. Heliodisplay projects images as shown in figure 1.
The basic units of heliodisplay are base unit and projection source as shown in figure 2. The projection source unit projects images onto the mid-air. The base unit produces the water vapour screen necessary to display the image. The image can be viewed from behind the base unit. The Heliodisplay is designed to be hidden into a pedestal, table etc , so that only its projected image is visible.
The display connects to a standard video source such as DVD player or PC and projects any images that would be viewable on a computer screen or television. No specialized hardware or software is needed to view images. The image can even give the appearance of a floating, holographic, 3-D image. Essentially, the device converts the imaging properties of the air so that the air is taken in, converted instantaneously, and then re-ejected out.
Then projects onto that converted air. After air is drawn into the machine, it moves through a dozen metal plates and then comes out again. The system creates a dynamic, non-solid particle cloud by ejecting atomized condensate present in the surrounding air, in a controlled fashion, into an invisible particle cloud.
It is electronic as well as thermodynamic. No moving parts are involved. The device works by creating a cloud of microscopic particles that make the air image-friendly. Light is forward transmitted to create visible images. Thus image is displayed as in figure 3.
Figure3: Working The machine uses no harmful gases or liquids. The heliodisplay is a relatively new technology and is still being developed. Heliodisplay works as a kind of floating display and touch screen, making it possible to manipulate images projected in air with our fingers.
Though it has some flaws the attention that it brings is enormous. Its various applications such as in advertising, a board room etc suggests that its future scope is very large. Several other thin air-displays are available but heliodisplay out classes them and as a result it has more market value. Though it is currently expensive and unaffordable Heliodisplay technology has a great potential.
It is the future generation display where we can see images projected into mid-air without the help of a solid screen. It could be used for museum or trade-show displays or for advertisements, and would be ideal for collaborative work. Our Software expertise ranges from OS Porting.
Mooguzuru The display connects to a standard video source such as DVD player or PC and projects any images that would be viewable on a computer screen or television. Are you interested in this topic. How do you plan to counter these problems? It is electronic as well as thermodynamic.
