What's New In Holograms? Hear from Looking Glass Factory CEO Shawn Frayne

Cainon Coates, Shawn Frayne

Holographic displays are part of a burgeoning market expected to reach $2.5 billion by 2024. However, traditional 3D hardware has been designed with inconvenient usability, often requiring headgear and other components to function. Issues with form, performance, and cost have prevented widespread holographic adoption. 

See video policy below.

Shawn Frayne and his colleagues at Looking Glass Factory are working to revolutionize how we experience 3D holograms, making it easier and more comfortable for everyone to enjoy. Alumni Ventures portfolio company Looking Glass Factory is building the next generation of digital viewing experiences with fully functional holographic displays, no headgear required. The Looking Glass 65″ holographic display is viewable by groups of 50 people, and generates up to 100 different perspectives of 3D content from 100 million points of light every 60th of a second, making it look real for simultaneous viewers. 

Hear from Looking Glass CEO, Shawn Frayne to learn more about the company, current developments, and their experience working with Alumni Ventures. The conversation is led by Managing Partner Cainon Coates. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about Alumni Ventures, and one of our many portfolio companies.
