Is this what Steve Jobs meant when he said the iPad was magical?

Japanese genius Aircord Lab has demonstrated how, by using a pyramid shaped screen made with a special film, and a simple iPhone app that has moving images, it can create 3D images that float within the pyramid and can be seen with the naked eye.

Called the N-3D, it's a bit like the Sony's 360-degree volumetric 3D display that we showed you recently, except probably a lot less expensive. Although it isn't as perfect as Sony's machine, because it isn't seamless.

The app is also able to determine sounds, so you can interact with it by clapping.

It's clever, clever stuff and we like it a lot. Check out the Aircord Lab website if you liked it as much as we did, where you'll find many more brilliant tech demos.
