Gushed Light Field: Design Method for Aerosol-based Fog Display

This project proposes a new method to render aerial images using aerosol-based fog screens. Conventional fog screens are easily affected by air flow, and their fog generators occupy large areas. In this study, we propose to add new tradeoffs between the display time and the payloads. We employ aerosol distribution from off-the-shelf sprays as a fog screen that can resist wind and has high portability. Results showed that the minimum weight of the entire system is approximately 600 g including all components, the screen raise time is approximately 0.5 s, the disappearance time is approximately 0.4 s, and the maximum wind speed at which we can project images is approximately 10 m/s. We presented prototypes on wearable applications, aerial imaging with a drone or radio-controlled model car, multi-viewpoint display, and a display embedded in the environment. This study will contribute to the exploration of new application areas for fog displays, and will augment expressions of entertainment and interactivity.


システムの特徴を活かしたアプリケーションとして,ペイロードが限られているドローンや高速で動くラジコンカーに搭載したり,ウェアラブルにして動く人物のバックに画像を表示したりといったアプリケーションを実装した。2015年10月には,落合陽一✕SEKAI NO OWARI 企画でライブ会場のロビー装飾を行った際,なにもない空中に突如ドクロが現れるという演出で利用した。エンターテイメント領域における空中映像・フォグディスプレイによる表現の拡張を目指す。
