Looking Glass, a company known for its 3D displays, has introduced its most affordable and portable screen yet: Looking Glass Go. The $300 device features a 6-inch 3D screen that is significantly thinner than previous models, making it the company’s first display to fit in a pocket. However, it requires power via USB-C, as the Looking Glass Go does not have a built-in battery.
The main functionality of the gadget is to provide the user with the ability to see 3D objects without a VR headset and view new forms of 3D images. Looking Glass Go can also interact with holographic characters with artificial intelligence based on ChatGPT. Users can create their own virtual assistant for communication or learning assistance.
The device also has built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for receiving holograms from the cloud and the user’s smartphone or tablet. The Looking Glass Go’s 6-inch screen has a higher pixel density than its 7.9-inch predecessor, with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels (491 ppi) compared to 2048 x 1536 pixels (325 ppi). It offers the same 58-degree viewing angles from 100 different points as the 7.9-inch model.
The company launched a campaign to raise money for the release of Looking Glass Go on Kickstarter, and has already raised almost $300,000 against a goal of $50,000. For those who support the campaign, the device will cost $199, and for an additional $50, the company offers a version with a transparent case.
