3D displays are starting to become a reality but Japanese researchers at the National Institute of Information have come up with something quite amazing. It’s a cube that has displays on all sides, plus at angular intervals.

Displaying a 3D model, the 6 screens display the corresponding view (in the case of the video, it’s the classic teapot). The screens are also touch-sensitive, like the iPhone, so the model can be manipulated in real time too. This version is low resolution, running at 36 x 30 at every 6.7 degrees of view. They are working on a high resolution version. Brilliant madness!
