Dear Biomch-L readers,

The fiollowing item is being Xposted from Usenet. I haven't seen any
follow-up data yet. I seem to recall having seen something like this
some years ago at the medical imaging group of the Mayo Clinic.

I read the following artical sent to me by a friend.

>August 1992 PHOTONICS SPECTRA has a picture and squib about a
>volumetric display built by Lambda systems of Highland Park, IL:

> "A new multiplaner display that presents nonholographic
> color images in real-time fills the need for volumetric
> imaging... In this system, images are contained inside
> a clear acrylic shell that is 36 cm high and 30 cm in
> diameter, but future displays...will vary from minature
> to large scale."
> Among the possible applications listed are medical imaging, air
> traffic control, and objective 3D theater for VR. This could make
> the RealityEngine look cheap.

Where can I get more information on this display?
