An interesting development of the company allows you to work with physical objects using graphic editors.
This equipment, called Project Glasswing, makes it possible to overlay content created using Adobe Photoshop, Premiere and After Effects programs on physical objects placed behind a transparent screen. It does not require any additional tools. According to the company, such development can be used, for example, as showcases. It will be useful for shops, museums, and can be a useful addition to vending machines.
Technically, Project Glasswing is a box, the front wall of which is replaced by a transparent touch screen with FullHD resolution. Inside the box, there is a backlight of 30 LEDs that allows you to illuminate objects placed inside from different angles. You can use a regular computer to control Project Glasswing.
Interestingly, the entire development process did not take much time - about a year. At the same time, the cost of all the necessary equipment is relatively low, the most expensive component is a special controller for $4000. Moreover, according to the company, if mass production of such a display is established, then it will cost significantly less.
At the same time, company representatives noted that they do not plan to engage in the production of screens, and Project Glasswing is a research project designed to demonstrate the possibilities of mixed reality and the latest Adobe applications. Third-party partners will be involved in further development of the project.
