Old school tech brought bang up to date
We'll keep this brief, as the video below does all the talking needed. What we have here is a new technology from Zebra Imaging, which allows for 3D maps and models to be 'printed' as a colour hologram on a backlit display. ZScape, as it's called, is acheived by layering thousands of holographic images onto a single bit of slate with the use of laser precision, and the end result is an ever-changing image that the naked eye registers as one 3D whole.
The maps are currently being used for military purposes, but if you want a 3D view of your own street, a 2 x 3 foot model will set you back $3500 (£2200). Enough talk, watch the video below to be amazed…
