Rabbit in the Fog

Researchers at Osaka University have developed a 3D projection system that you can walk around and even pet. Projectors shine images onto a stream of fog, as the water mist scatters the light, allowing us to see a rabbit floating in the air. Of course, a 3D-virtual-floating-purple rabbit isn’t enough for the Japanese, so the researchers integrated an IR system so users can interact with the projection, provided they are wearing IR lights.

 

The hope is to use this technology in medicine by showing patients organs as the doctor explains what they will be doing.
