LightBee concept video
LightBee – the world’s first holographic drone display. The display allows people to project themselves into another location as a flying hologram – much like Princess Leia from the Star Wars movies. With the LightBee display, teleconferencing will be taken to a new level. Unlike traditional video-conference or VR technologies, the new display lets people at remote locations gain an actual physical presence in the room by using a drone that mimics their head movements in 3D.
In collaboration with the Human Media Lab at Queen’s University, Canada, LightBee was presented at CHI2019
