Researchers at the University of Tokyo led by Hiroyuki Shinoda has developed a display that lets users "touch" objects that appear to float in space in front of them. The virtual objects appear in mid-air via an LCD and a concave mirror, creating the sensation of touching the objects produced using an ultrasound device positioned below the LCD and mirror.
This new holographic technology was displayed at the SIGGRAPH 2009 Conference.
