Holo Industries Launches Large-format Holographic Touch Solutions

Oct. 27, 2021
ASKA3D Plates provide large holographic images for Industrial and workplace applications.

Holo Industries LLC has expanded its line of Holographic Touch solutions to include large-format, contactless holographic systems for machine, factory, and other rugged industrial applications. The holographic image is clear and precise, and Holo’s user interface (UI), is accurate and responsive, providing zero latency with an impressive 50 millisecond response time, even when the operator is wearing gloves. Additionally, since all interactions occur in mid-air, there is never any residual grease, grime clean-up on touchscreens, keyboards, or other control surfaces.

Larger available plate sizes measure 12.2 x 12.2 (310), 16.5 x 16.5 (420), and 24.8 x 24.8 in. (630 mm). The increased sizes are made possible by glass holographic plates from ASKA3D, a division of Japanese technology firm Asukanet Co., Ltd., and distributed by Holo Industries LLC worldwide. The precision glass plates are 0.22 in. (5.6 mm) thick and consist of strategically positioned vertical mirrors, hundreds of microns wide, and manufactured in Japan using ASKA3D’s patented process. The holographic plates, combined with sensors and Holo Industries’ proprietary software and hardware components, comprise Holographic Touch, a disruptive new technology that allows users to safely touch, pinch, scroll or spin any image effortlessly in mid-air.

“Holographic Touch was initially invented as a safe and germ-free way for employees and customers to interact in mid-air, so businesses could thrive during the pandemic,” says Glenn ImObersteg, Holo Industries CEO. “But in the past year, many new and innovative applications have emerged, and the demand for our holographic solutions has been unprecedented. The larger imaging capacity will expand our markets to include interactive displays and mid-air machines, scheduling and controls for smart factories, and other applications. We currently have more than 70 different prototypes being tested in automobile dashboards, airplane galleys, hotel, and hospital registration systems, restaurants, parking garages, and ATMs, among others.”

In addition to the larger product lines, Holo Industries is also designing Holographic Touch products in small form-factors for  2 x 2 in. (50 mm) doorbells, kitchen and lavatory applications;  4 x 4 in. (100 mm) for entry systems and keypads.

Holo Industries’ products are available as:

  • Modular Systems
  • Demos & Prototypes
  • Integrated Solutions
  • Plastic or glass holographic plates

Holo industries and Holographic Touch can be experienced at HX: the Hotel Experience in New York in November, Self-Service Innovation Summit in Florida in December, and CES in Las Vegas in January.
