Konica Minolta Shows Off New Holographic HUD

Konica Minolta has been getting its Star Trek on at Ceatec.

Today, they showed off their new light-weight holographic wearable display. The idea is that people can watch TV or read a book while they do other things, like living. Right now, it’s just a prototype and they’re still looking for a niche market to push this thing toward. It’s just a pair of glasses with an attachment on top of it which contains an LED that projects the image through a condenser lens and a prism. Once the image travels through the prism, it passes through the display where it is projected onto the holographic element. No word on whether or not Konica Minolta is planning on forging an alliance with the Cardassians.
