The Leia Display The Leia Display System is capable of projecting images into midair, and also allows the user to interact with these images via gesture controls. the device first emits a thin wall of water vapor into the air. Without light, this wall is nearly invisible, but when hit with the beam of a projector, it serves as a semi-transparent canvas for the projected imagery. Then, with the help of a few motion tracking sensors and some special software, the system is able to recognize when an image is touched by a user, which allows the display to be grabbed, pinched, swiped, rotated, flicked, and manipulated with all sorts of Minority Report-style gestures.
