New Holocube is the closest you get to the Holodeck [Video]
 
 

Holocube just informed us about their latest version of the 3D projection device. The new holocube has a 70-inch diagonal screensize. Back in 2008 Holocube started with a 20-inch size.

The brand new HC70, a six foot tall box with a 70″ diagonal screen makes full-sized human projections possible. Below you can watch a video showing a girl float in space in the cube.

Each holocube is attached to a 40GB solid state hard drive that can store approximately 18 hours of uncompressed video at a bit rate of 4 Mb/s or 8 hours of compressed video at 9 Mb/s. This harddrive is set with a number of automatic functions such as automatic reboot upon power interruption and it’s supposedly completely immune to viruses (though, I’m not sure why that would matter since it’s not connected to a network.) It’s got a single switch to operate as all operations are pre-programmed, all content changed and uploaded via USB interface.

The brightness of the projector inside this huge box is 600 cd/m2 bright and has a resolution of 1080 x 1920. The computer running the projector runs on a Intel Dual Core 2.8 Ghz processor with Windows 7 Embedded, but again, that doesn’t matter as you won’t be accessing the computer at all. The bulk of the box is made of aluminum in either white or black matte powder coating, and the projection screen is made of a giant sheet of glass.

Via Holocube.
