The Looking Glass Factory develops interfaces for holographic, light field displays. Light field displays seem to be advancing, and we invited LGF's CEO and co-founder, Shawn Frayne, to help us understand the technology and to tell us more about the company, its technologies and latest status.
Q: Hello Shawn. Can you give us a short background on LGF, and on your own interest in light field displays?
Ever since I saw the holographic shark swallow up Marty McFly in Back to the Future II, I have been pursuing the dream of the hologram – a way to create and share images and memories that are as lifelike as people and things in the real world. However, despite living in a 3D universe, our digital interactions, memories and creations remain trapped on flat, 2D screens. I wanted to change that, and that’s how and why Looking Glass Factory started.
