Adobe has unveiled a prototype display that supports mixed reality which allows you to overlay real objects in a digital image, as well as the effects from Photoshop, After Effects or Premiere Pro.
Device Project Glasswing is a box with dimensions of 55?30?35 cm in which one party is replaced by a transparent screen diagonal of 24.5 in. Data is sent from PC via DVI or DisplayPort.
Glasswing Project is purely a research project, which aims to show the display manufacturers the prospect of augmented reality.
Inside you can put items, and placed around the perimeter of 30 LEDs, which illuminate objects, and act as backlight for the screen.
The screen itself consists of three layers: LCD TN-matrix with a resolution of 1920×1080, a liquid crystal lens that can change its state from clear to turbid, and a touchscreen.
The display works on the principle of the lenses in augmented reality. With a frequency of 144 Hertz it switches between a state of transparency at which the background is transparent and the displayed image appears as black, and as the opacity in which the lens becomes cloudy and blocks light from objects behind the screen, the background is shown black, and the displayed image is colored.
The first samples cost $4000, but with serial production the price will be reduced. Adobe believe that such a display is ideal for retailers, vending machines, showrooms and museums.
