CTOnews.com Looking Glass, a startup dedicated to making 3D displays, recently launched its latest portable product, Looking Glass Go, which launched a 7.9-inch desktop version for $349 in 2020.

At $300 (CTOnews.com notes: currently around rmb 2151), it has a 6-inch screen size, is 10 times thinner than its predecessor and is small enough to fit in a pocket. However, the display still needs to be powered through the USB-C interface. It's also the first Looking Glass product with built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth that can "receive holograms from the cloud."

The new 6-inch screen has a higher pixel density than its predecessor, at 1440 x 2560 (491ppi), compared to 1536 x 2048 (325ppi). Looking Glass claims that the new screen also offers a 58-degree viewing angle, allowing 3D images to be viewed from up to 100 different viewpoints. CTOnews.com Note: As with most autostereoscopic displays, Looking Glass Go doesn't project 3D images in all directions simultaneously, and your eyes must be at a certain angle on the screen to see it correctly.

Looking Glass Go, again launched with a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, has much the same pitch: it lets you see 3D objects without a VR headset, view space photos you took with your phone, view emerging 3D images like NeRFs and Gaussian Splats, and even interact with GPT-powered holographic AI characters, as demonstrated in the company's YouTube video.

Looking Glass isn't just investing in hardware, they've even developed a way to view 3D images by dragging a finger or cursor across the web, a method called "Looking Glass Blocks."

Made of steel, glass and ABS plastic, Looking Glass Go weighs 235 grams, is 0.76 inches (1.9 centimeters) thick, 6.3 inches (16 centimeters) high and 3.2 inches (8 centimeters) wide, according to Looking Glass. The device has forward, backward and pause buttons on the side for slide show playback, as well as a 3.5 mm audio jack. It is worth noting that the device is not equipped with speakers.

Looking Glass Go is currently on sale on Kickstarter for an early-bird price of $199 (there's also a special version with a clear case that costs $50 more), with a campaign deadline of December 6 and expected to ship as early as June 2024.
