The Holovect Mk II is the said to be the world's first desktop holographic display. It was built by an American product designer named Jaime Ruiz-Avila.
According to Kickstarter, the Holovect Mk II is a self-contained laser-based volumetric display system. This system fits on your desktop or lab bench.
It is said to be the perfect companion to a 3D printer and a stand-alone educational or promotional device.
The Holovect Mk II is the first commercially available, laser-based desktop 'holographic' display. The display is able to draw 3D objects in air with light.
According to Ruiz-Avila, as he wrote on the product's Kickstarter page, "Holovect images are NOT holograms."
"The self-contained laser-based display can fit on your lab bench or desktop, and is "the perfect companion to a 3D printer or stand-alone educational device," he added.
It was reiterated that Holovect images are not holograms but instead volumetric vector images projected onto modified air (i.e. projections in space).
Holovect images contain three-dimensional information and are free-floating objects in air, they are most certainly holographic. They are real 3-D projections, according to Kickstarter.
The Verge also reported about real holographic display becoming a thing as Volume and Holovect products aim to bring holograms to developers and then eventually consumers.
The price of Holovect ranges from $899 as starter then the full-colored spectrum costs at $1,800.
Even though the Verge has yet to check out a prototype in-person, from what they have seen from Volume, the quality of holograms is not that grand yet.
Meanwhile, The Huffington Post reported that at this stage, Holovect is just a prototype, but its creator Ruiz-Avila has passed his $45,000 funding goal. He is set to start shipping units from March next year.
If consumers think it would make a peculiar addition to the future technology, you'll need to pledge $799 (£650) or more to help make Holovect the standard of holographic volumetric displays.
