Science fiction has long since romanticized the idea of a 3D, interactive hologram. From Star Wars to Iron Man, seeing characters interact with what is essentially beams of light is a great visual. For many reasons, most of them involving cost, you can’t just walk into a Starbucks and play a game of virtual chess on top of a coffee table. The creators of Voxiebox see this as a crime against geekdom, and are looking to remedy this with their new game.A small clear plate vibrates constantly as green light fills a 3x3x1-inch space. Like a child’s toy that spells out words as you spin the glowing stick, the computer in the Voxiebox uses the position of the clear plate to determine where the light should be pointing. As the screen moves, the images look as though they are stacked on top of each other. The end result is a display that can be viewed in 3D from every angle except the projection surface.This volumetric display can be exponentially increased to create larder displays without losing and of the desired effect.Voxon, creators of the VoxieBox, have a long standing history of tinkering with these kinds of displays. The New York Hall of Science features a volumetric display made by Voxon tem member Alan Jackson. Ideally, Voxiebox would grow as a concept to include 3D tabletop gaming of all sorts and make it so we could all one day sit down and play without wondering where all the pieces are.The only thing cooler than incredibly high-quality gaming is low-quality gaming done in an incredibly cool way.
