  1. This was news to me anyway. And I thought I wanted Sony's 24" display:

    - Real 3-D imagery floats inside spherical display
    - Resolution Breakthrough: approximately 100 million voxels
    - 360-degree all-around viewing
    - Approx. 10" diameter spherical image
    - Swept-screen multiplanar volumetric display
    - TI™ 1600 MIPS DSP high-performance embedded processor
    - 6 Gbit DDR SDRAM (1 Gbit x 3 colors x 2 buffers)

    And the price?:
    - Volumetric 3-D Display (hardware): US$45,000
    - Actuality Visualization Operating System (software): US$3,000
    - Developer's Program and Software Development Kit: US$2,000/month
    - Installation: US$2,100
    - Hardware Support Programs: Basic (US$3,000/yr) and Premium ($7,000/yr)
    - Software Support Programs: Basic (US$3,000/yr) and Premium ($7,000/yr)

    Computerworld has an article about the display:

    can run a game at 640x480, but too bad it doesn't have enough color to make the graphic good.

    Would this not mean 8 colors per voxel, which could create many, many colors? I think this would work simliar to a television set's R-G-B coloring system, if this is indeed how the 8 colors are used.

    I was thinking the same. $45,000 it better show more than red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, black, white.
