Abstract

Herein, the design and implementation of a transparent 3D touch‐enabled surface for richer user interaction with midair 3D virtual objects in a touch‐interactive pseudo‐holographic display are presented. Frustrated total internal reflection (FTIR)‐based touch sensing is used in combination with a four‐sided pyramidal pseudo‐holographic projection. The developed system allows gesture‐based control and smooth touch interaction through facile and inexpensive hardware and open‐source software tools. A software application is also developed as the interface between the touch/gesture‐sensing system and the optical display. By bringing the virtual and real world closer through touch‐based interaction, the presented system will enrich user experience and enable advances in areas such as education, entertainment, gaming, retail, and museums where holograms are currently used.
