Have you seen the original Iron Man movie? It was released in 2008 and it featured an awesome 3D holographic experience where Tony Stark – our beloved iron-made superhero incarnated by Robert Downey Jr – designs its famous armor suit. This kind of holographic displays have then been re-used in both Iron Man 2 and 3. But get ready, because what was just science fiction 6 years ago is now science
Using the free and open source <a href="http://minko zoloft pill.io/engine”>Minko engine for 3D rendering with an holographic style and a Leap Motion as a complete hand tracking system (palm + each finger position/orientation), we were able to mimic Tony’s famous toy. The only thing we missed was an actual holographic display. So we used an Oculus Rift to create an awesome virtual reality experience where users think they are actually facing the hologram in a virtual room.
