Maxell has developed an Advanced Floating Image Display, an aerial display that can be operated by non-contact buttons, with the aim of releasing it to the market in 2021.
The Advanced Floating Image Display is an aerial display that uses light reflection to display images in the air where there is nothing to see. The display uses Maxell's proprietary LLIS technology.
This LLIS is an image light control technology for LCDs, which can guide the image light in any direction. In addition, the use of recursive optical components made by Nippon Carbide Industries has made it possible to achieve a high brightness and high contrast display.
In addition, the airborne display surface can be operated with tablet-like precision. Airborne operations such as airborne switches and gestures are possible.
Maxell plans to launch this display as the "Advanced Floating Image Display" in 2021, after conducting market research starting in the second half of this year. In addition, Maxell aims to create a new market for digital signage and in-car video display systems in combination with the 3D video display technology currently under development.
The display, which can be operated without contact, is expected to be very effective in creating a society that is resistant to virus infection.
