Microsoft's "Vermeer", a touchable 360-degree holographic display

Yes it is touchable!! , Touchable is a stretch when talking about Vermeer, but we'd definitely call it interactive. Instead of hiding the 360-degree display under an acrylic or glass dome it uses a parabolic reflector to float a 3D "object" in space and tracks hand motions with an IR sensor or Kinect. It's not unlike RePro3D, but withslightly less bulky hardware. Don't take our word for it though, check out the video after the break.
