Military Review

Not so bad in the Danish (Russian) kingdom


For quite a long time I was jabbing over the project "Immortality", they say the next election bike. But recently, Google on this topic and went to the site of the project "Russia 2045", clicked the first article and got out of it. Rosnano nervously smokes on the sidelines.

I really wanted to see something similar in our headquarters (hereafter kopipast):

Displair - the screen formed by the flow of the smallest particles of water from the sprayer - is not the newest development: it was first introduced in 2010 year. During this time, the project of the Astrakhan company received several million dollars of investment and moved from the experimental stage to the commercial one: in 2013, the “screens out of the fog” will start selling at the price of 398 thousand rubles apiece. Already started accepting pre-orders; The first devices should ship to customers in October.

The installation of Displair includes the screen itself (serial model diagonal - 30 inches) and the projector. The peculiarity of the system is that the user can not only look at the image, but also interact with it: the screen is equipped with a set of sensors that capture the movements of the hands. Multi-touch is supported: “display out of fog” is able to perceive several simultaneous touches at once.

The streams of drops that make up the screen are visible to the naked eye and are felt by the hand, but due to the small size of the particles, the user's fingers remain dry. For an hour of work Displair consumes one and a half liters of water. Fluid is supplied from a tank of 15 liters capacity that is part of the system.

The picture on the display - especially when viewed from afar - really looks “suspended in the air,” as the creators promise. The image, however, is shaky and indistinct: its outlines are blurred and the details are blurred. Small text, for example, is completely unreadable, and on a virtual globe (one of the demonstration applications for Displair) neither the river nor the relief details are visible.

The main application of Displair is advertising. The screen "creates a wow effect," the developers say: very few people are able to walk past a modelko hovering in the air (for example, a car) and not stop to stare and twist the picture with their fingers. In other areas, it is still difficult to use the screen due to poor detail, but in the future the device promises to be “finalized”.

    Well, according to the old Russian tradition, our leaders will not pay attention to these "useless and useless" developments, the author of the developments will take his brains abroad (USA) and everything is as usual.

      Here you are wrong. The Russian government supported this development.

      Why take it somewhere, if in Russia you can make money on new technologies for commercial purposes, because it’s not the Soviet Union.

        Now we can make great money on this without any export. The high-tech sphere is now actively developing in our country and you can earn a lot on it. 1C created because the software and get rich, Kaspersky is the same. To address this development to large companies, I think they will be happy to make such an advertisement. hi The only thing, of course, is that the field of alternative fuel is unpromising now, since the oilmen will not let the project go to the masses, because they can afford it. We have no economic veins, we can steal a current, but imagine if the same Prokhorov and his billions invested them in the development of alternative power sources, you can make that kind of money on 50 for generations, but we honestly nobody wants unfortunately sad

      Everything is fine! We are forbidden, and we are suckling for evil. Who said that there is a brain drain from Russia ?. Normal brains remain at home.

      As far as I understand, this thing has one advantage - "the most accurate interface to date." How can this advantage be applied? Well, for example, when developing a new 6th generation airframe, or in high-precision machines, or growing spores of cancerous tumors, for the leaders of Britain and the United States. There are plenty of opportunities.

    Heron’s impeller was also at first a primitive toy until it became a steam turbine in the 19th century.
    Perhaps screens from the fog will crowd out many other screens.

    I saw this miracle last year. On TV they showed this Kulibin. Here is one more confirmation of the fact that there are talents in Russia. It's just a shame that we will not use these inventions at all, not one of the first. belay

      Skolkovo with his tablet nervously smokes on the sidelines. The problem is eternal, implementation, there is no state desire, and private traders do not need to. It’s easier to sell a one-time idea abroad than to build factories with a future profit in 10 years

        Right on the bull's eye good Not for nothing, after all, during the years of the existence of the USSR, the Japanese bought bundles of magazines from us, Model designer, Technique of youth, Science and life. and so on. And now it’s even better, and there’s no need to buy it, we are preparing good design engineers, which we then give so easily to the hill, III raaaduuuyusya. Whoa they are what we are. Yeah, where are we going.

        Oh, do not remind about the red rat. For all the time of their existence, they have not created anything, they only steal money.

    The idea is pretty old. Years 10. At the exhibitions, years 5 show.
    The problem is that the scope of application is narrow. The quality is a little figurative, afraid of everything starting from drafts. To do 3 pieces for the Olympics and then ride around the exhibitions and that’s all.

      Plasma screens, although they lost to the LCD matrices, for a long time were profitable and more than once paid for their development. For a long time, they had significant advantages over LCD.

    About 5 years ago, the Helio display appeared and works without water; there, lasers from air molecules knock out photons by the type of an RZhB it costs like 12000 cosmobaks on YouTube Mona see HELIODISPLAY
