On Tuesday, the Brooklyn, New York, and Looking Glass is aggressively making sure it's at the tip of the spear Hong Kong-based startup unveiled the latest in its product line, the Looking Glass 8K Immersive Display.
Earlier versions of the product – the Looking Glass Standard, Large, and Pro series – were all effective in showing us exactly where such a touchscreen and gesture-based holographic display might fit in the world of traditional computing interfaces and emerging augmented reality solutions. 4K resolution.
Therefore, as you might guess, 8K builds on these previous dynamics. But it turns out that the holographic display into new territory actually takes place. 8K display up-close, and the realism was stunning.
It's difficult to translate here what I saw via tradition 2 images and videos but, in some cases, the 3D imagery on the new 8K display almost seems like its extending outwardly from the screen

The new device, officially called The Looking Glass 8K Immersive Display, delivers 33.2 million pixels and over a billion-count color gamut at 60Hz.
After spending some time with the 8K version, it's easy to see how the massive 8K 32-inch display could be used for everything from mapping, medical imaging to the realm of academia and real-world pre- and post
I even got a chance to see how the 8K display might work for remote communication. Imagine the person you are talking about, who is sitting in the office, using the Looking Glass 8K screen (rather than via a flat, 2D screen dynamic) and you begin to see some of the potential future
Using such a dynamic, I could see how it interacts with many virtual assistants as 3D avatars through smart homes and public spaces.
However, the price is not cheap. Looking Glass will run you $ 6,000, so expect to pay more than that to lay your hands on the new version.
The beta supply of the device is already committed to a list of clients, but the team is accepting pre-orders today, with delivery expected in the spring of 2020.
