Russian startup Displair came on to the scene with a fascinating product, they designed and developed the world’s first interactive air display with a MultiTouch gesture recognition system. A hugely interesting concept that really did look like something from Minority Report. Picture a sheet of blown humidified air capturing the display of a small discreet projector to show you an image floating in the air. Ethereal in its feeling the moving air gently brushed the projected image creating the impression that you were looking at, and interacting with, something that was almost alive. As you might be able to tell, I liked it. Well Displair have just announced something new and there’s not a new piece of hardware in sight.
Displair have instead developed a new mobile app and brought us Airlike. Designed to let users transfer photos and videos between friends quickly and easily, once both parties have the app installed they can simply point their phones at one another and swipe content from one phone over onto the other. It’s got a few more features than that, but at it’s core that’s what the app is, a way to make sharing your photos and videos painless.
