True 3D Display Using Laser Plasma in the Air

This display device uses the plasma emission phenomenon near the focal point of focused laser light. By controlling the position of the focal point in the x, y, and z axes, it displays real 3D images constructed by dot arrays in the air.

Enhanced Life
This is the first successful attempt to use laser plasma to display "true 3D images" in a space where there is nothing but air.

Goals
Make laser-produced characters or images for information, amusement, emergency information, or advertising in the sky.

Innovations
Laser-produced plasma in the air is used to creates dots that are assembled into true 3D images floating in space.
