Researchers at the Human Media Lab at Queen’s University have successfully developed the world’s first holographic Android smartphone with F-OLED screen, dubbed HoloFlex.

While every other media — 3D TV, movie theaters and game consoles — require users to either wear polarized glasses or use head tracking devices, HoloFlex phone’s innovative design offers a smarter alternative.

The device is equipped for rendering 3D pictures with motion parallax and stereos-copy so that whatever’s on the screen looks like a floating hologram to anyone who is within viewing range, without the need for special eye-wear.

The holographic effect is achieved by breaking up the full HD display into 16,000 12-pixel wide hexagons. Each tiny fish-eye lens renders a slightly different image when viewed through a 3D-printed overlay and the images will appear to float off the screen, as well as provide depth.

Another cool feature of the HoloFlex is its flexibility. HoloFlex phone allows users to move the device around and view the 3D images from almost any angle.

The prototype smartphone, which runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop, features a 1,920 x 1,080 high definition Flexible Organic Light Emitting Diode (FOLED) touchscreen that can be bent without damaging the device.

The device has a ReFlex display, which allows users to move objects in virtual space by bending the screen forward or backward.

Additionally, through using a depth camera, the device will provide enriched 3D video conferencing capabilities that enable more immersive interaction between users.

The District Police Office, organising a press conference on Monday,had made public Dilip Singh Bista (41), of Baghphanta, Bhimdatta Municipality-19 as Nirmala’s murderer.

Locals have shut down the market area stating that police were not being able to make public the true murderer(s) as they are not convinced by the findings of police citing that Bista was mentally unsound, according to the District Police Office.

Transportation has also been halted.

Bista, a resident of Khanna Chauraha area in Bhimdutta Municipality-19, was apprehended near the scene of crime on Sunday, according to police.

Police making public the wrong suspect has infuriated the locals and fueled the protest.

The agitators including various civil society organisations and human rights defenders have been picketing the District Administration Office and staging rally on the street mounting pressure on the police to reveal the facts behind the heinous crime.

Meanwhile, it had been learnt that police have fired rounds of teargas shells to contain the agitated mob.
