Looking Glass is now shipping its 8K holographic display, which uses 33.2 million pixels and a 45-element light field to provide a 3D effect.

According to TechCrunch the target markets here are medical imaging, mapping, automotive, architecture and engineering.

However there are those in the gaming market who are interested in what the tech could mean. Epic Games CTO Kim Libreri said access to a glasses-free holographic display is a massive breakthrough.

"It presents an exciting prospect for teams working in immersive computer graphics, visualisation and content creation. The Looking Glass holographic display provides a stunning level of realism, and we look forward to seeing the innovations that emerge with the support of Unreal Engine generated content."

The company is only offering pricing quotes by request through its site -- which means it's pretty likely to be cost prohibitive for those just looking to augment a remote working setup. The company is targeting enterprise users with early applications -- organisations that generally have money to spend on state of the art hardware. More consumer-focused applications, including gaming, could be coming though.
