We present an electro-optical apparatus capable of displaying a computer generated hologram (CGH) in real time. The CGH is calculated by a supercomputer, read from a fast frame buffer, and transmitted to a high-bandwidth acousto-optic modulator (AOM). Coherent light is modulated by the AOM and optically processed to produce a three-dimensional image with(More)
Most development efforts toward the "ultimate" display technology focus on the initial demonstration, with little consideration of the demo's manufacturability. Efforts to make the product commercially available generally hit tremendous obstacles and die out within a few years. Unfortunately, researchers who build and successfully demonstrate prototypes(More)
We take displays for granted in devices like our laptops, television, cell phones, and cars -to name a few places. The TFT LCD processes in use now are as mature as CMOS was 20 years ago, which is when we started seeing ASIC companies doing fabless chip design and investing heavily in CAD. Today, the display, as I believe I showed while working on the OLPC,(More)
We must begin to create on the same scale as we can destroy, or else art, and more dangerously the human spirit and imagination, will be rendered decorative and impotent. The panel is made up of artists who create large-scale works using technology. We discuss the future of artistic techniques which incorporate technology, in order to extend the(More)
