HoloFlexA group of researchers at the Human Media Lab at Queen’s University on 5 May 2016 announced that they have developed the world’s first holographic flexible smartphone named HoloFlex.

The device is capable of rendering 3D images with motion parallax and stereoscopy to multiple simultaneous users without head tracking or glasses.

Key highlights of HoloFlex

The device features a 1920x1080 full high-definition Flexible Organic Light Emitting Diode touchscreen display.

Images are rendered into 12-pixel wide circular blocks rendering the full view of the 3D object from a particular viewpoint.

It produces 160 x 104 resolution image that allows users to inspect a 3D object from any angle simply by rotating the phone

It is equipped with a bend sensor, which allows the user to bend the phone as a means of moving objects along the z-axis of the display.

It is powered by a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor and 2 GB of memory.

It can also be used for holographic gaming. In a game such as Angry Birds, users would be able to bend the side of the display to pull the elastic rubber band that propels the bird. When the bird flies across the screen, the holographic display makes the bird literally pop out of the screen in the third dimension.
