Looking Glass has introduced a new holographic display called Portrait, the first of its kind for home use. Not the most technological device, but the most affordable.
Other Looking Glass designs have exceeded $ 600 for the 8.9-inch display to $ 6,000 for the 15-inch model. For Kickstarter investors, Portrait will cost $ 200, but for everyone else it’s $ 350, which is still cheaper than other holographic displays.
The system supports up to 100 points of view for obtaining a three-dimensional image and allows several viewers to see the picture in 3D at once. The diagonal of the display in Portrait is 7.9 inches with a resolution of 2048×1536. A lens raster is glued on top of a regular screen.
Since childhood, I dreamed of the moment when I would have my own holographic display. I imagined what it would be like to send someone a holographic birthday message or say hello in a hologram to my great-great-great-granddaughter.
Looking Glass Portrait – the culmination of six years of work by our Brooklyn and Hong Kong team – is making these dreams a reality for a wider audience than ever before.

In addition to the standard version, a bundle with the Portrait frame itself, an Azure Kinect camera, a Leap Motion controller, a case and special photo rails for capturing volumetric images using light field technology will be on sale.
The cost of this version will be $ 1000, the start of deliveries will take place no earlier than mid-2021.
