The next step in the digital personal computer design. The HTD-01 Concept is the first PC, which uses a mini LED projector.
Some may remember the old, large and big rear projection TV. Project task was to produce a new concept for such a screen. It is based on the outdated rear projection technology but using state-of-the-art techniques of transparency and holography. The first approach put together the thin glass and projector technology. However, the positioning of the screen to the viewer was not easy to implement, what became a problem. Therefor the engineers calculated the perfect viewing angle. As a result, the viewer does not have to adjust the screen. During the second step of the design phase we tried to miniaturize the the device. The concept is just an intermediate step on the way to holography. The short-throw projection will continue to evolve until there is no static projection surface anymore. In the future pictures will be displayed as holographies floating in the room. That – a goal!
The HTD-01 is a conceptual monitor design with a transparent display. It is equipped with LED-projector, integrated in the stand and beams at its 4mm acrylic display. The display is coated with an advanced foil that picks up the light. The projection surface is 27-inches, it features 1920×1080 pixels with an aspect ratio of 16:9, and other standard connections just like conventional monitors. There’s 2.1 Sound-System is integrated in the stand as well. The transparent display creates modern touch for any environment, during the operation, the monitor offers crystal clear pictures allowing you to see what’s happening behind it.
