Sony presents screen with holographic display costing $ 5,000


Sony has just presented its new monitor with a 3D optical experience. THE ‘Spatial Reality Display‘was launched by the company costing R $ 28 thousand and will arrive in stores in November.

New screen tracks the user’s eye in real time to create a 3D image.

The Japanese giant’s new device uses a 3D rendering of objects that react to the tilt that the user normally makes with his head, so the 15.6-inch 4K LCD screen offers a “holographic” experience.

Nicknamed “”Eye-Sensing Light Field Display“the special reality display of Sony has sensors for both eyes of the user. With this, the device can detect and track the user’s eye movement at high speed, while the user moves the head, or body, around the device.

THE ‘Spatial Reality Display‘divides the screen into the left and right eyes, creating a stereoscopic image at the end. Sony’s new screen requires a powerful PC in order to work, a computer with an Intel Core i7 is recommended, not to mention which generation, with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER video card.


The device arrives on November 2 US $ 1,295

PC requisition is one of the weaknesses of the Sonycompared to the competition. As stated by the portal The Verge, Sony’s newest holographic screen attempt hits the market where it already has competitors like ‘Looking Glass‘. The product is cheaper than Sony’s, costing US $ 3,000 (approximately R $ 17,000 in direct conversion) and requires less powerful hardware to function, running with a Core i5, 4 GB of RAM and an Nvidia GTX 1060 video card at least.

In the test performed by the The Verge the product worked as proposed by Sony, but the portal stressed that it’s not hard to break the 3D illusion created by the monitor. One of the points cited by the website is the distance for the device to function.
