Dimenco showed off its 8K 3D display at CES 2020. The display supports Simulated Reality, which shows 3D images with depth without requiring people to wear goggles or glasses. People can also "feel" objects in Simulated Reality thanks to haptics tools. The display comes from a collaboration between Dimenco, Microsoft, and Ultraleap. The current version of the display is a developer kit that began shipping last November, but Dimenco showed it off more at CES 2020.
The 32-inch display is the "ultimate spatial desktop machine available for all creators," according to Dimenco. Simulated Reality's goal is to immerse people into content without needing external hardware like glasses. Developers can work with Unity Editor and Unreal Engine to create content. Note that the video below is from last year.
The display is at Microsoft's CES Experience Center, where people can see it up close. In addition to showing images with depth, people can interact with objects in Simulated Reality using mid-air haptic feedback that's from Ultraleap.
