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.
Over 20,000 drivers taken action through CCTV monitoring
KATHMANDU— The Metropolitan Traffic Police Division (MTPD) has effectively launched monitoring of vehicles plying on the road through close circuit (CC) camera in Kathmandu valley.
Traffic Police are keeping a close watch on drivers to check whether they are following the traffic rules or not.
A total of 20,024 drivers of various vehicles faced action based on such monitoring. The police begun this bid since 2073 BS and it has become effective so far, said SSP Basanta Panta of the Traffic Division.
Most of the cases were related to violation of the traffic lane and driving on ‘one way’ roads, he added.
The police are monitoring the traffic activities through 460 close circuit cameras installed at the Division Office, Ranipokhari.Follow @gorkhapost
