3D Holgraphic Prints

Today Andrew Thompson the digital fabrication manager at RMIT Architecture and Design department introduced us to the world of Holographic digital prints. This really has to be seen to be believed. This new technology produced by Sebra Imaging, based in the United States will potentially revolutionise the way we represent 3d data in a true 3d format.  

There is no need for 3d glasses to view the image and because of its light weight and 2 mm thickness, it can be easily transportable. Only downfall at the moment is the cost, a image just under an A3 size will set you back from $700 to $3,500 USD. 

Check out below some links that shows how this technology potencially can be used.
