Augmented reality seems too big to be just restricted to your smartphone’s screen or a pair of glasses — it can be life-sized. That’s what Danish company RealFiction aims to do with its huge augmented reality windows that allows users to view mixed reality without using a headset or a special app.
Dubbed DeepFrame, the curved display produces life-sized projections that appear as if they are overlaid onto the world around the user. Each display comprises of a single piece of clear 64-inch glass that's made with specially designed optics that are able to reflect an image that's projected from a normal display, like a television or monitor.
Besides being able to project content from a TV, RealFiction is also a potential telepresensce tool, meaning users will be able to chat with a life-sized projection of a person away from them.
DeepFrame isn’t aiming for average consumer — not as of now. RealFiction is now focusing on selling DeepFrame to larger businesses. Also, the display holds a hefty price tag, starting from $50,000, according to the company.
CEO Clas Dyrholm, believes the technology can make its way to smaller devices, like tablets and phones, which would open up the potential for more consumer-ready applications.
