We have created a movable, limitedly volumetric "immaterial" display. Our prototype is the first mobile, hand-held fogscreen. It can show e.g., slices of volumetric objects when swept across mid-air. It is based on the patented FogScreen [Fogio 2013] technology. The previous FogScreen installations have been fixed set-ups, where the screen device and a projector are typically rigged up, leaving space for the viewers to walk through the mid-air display. Also mid-air virtual reality and mid-air user interfaces have been implemented [DiVerdi et al. 2006, Rakkolainen et al. 2009]. 2013 Copyright held by the Owner/Author.
