|Easy 3D Display With Leap Control|

Now and again you see something that achieves a lot with very little. In this case we have an impressive, almost 3D, display created out of standard parts plus a Leap Motion sensor.
In this case four views of the globe are created and reflected off the four sides of a plexiglass pyramid. The sides of the pyramid are angled at 45 degrees for correct horizontal viewing. Notice that there will be some distortion if viewed from slightly above or below. The display is simply a standard monitor laid flat on the table.
It looks good, but notice that it has its limitations. The image isn't a true volumetric display but four different views that you see depending on which side of the pyramid you are looking at. It is a nice idea implemented by Robbie Tilton.
When you take into account how simple the approach is, you have to admit that it is remarkably effective.
