SplashDisplay: Volumetric Projecting Using Projectile Beads

Los Angeles Convention Center, Concourse Foyer

The prime feature of SplashDisplay is that it uses projectile beads launched from a table as a display medium. The system launches projectile beads from millimeters to meters into the air, so it can present an image "depth" much like the Z-axis in 3D display technologies. When the beads are still, SplashDisplay presents a stationary screen. When they are airborne and light is projected onto them, they illuminate as they fall, presenting a fireworks-like effect in real time.
