Looking Glass Holographic Display

This document contains information about the Looking Glass Holographic Display, including its function, user manual, contact information, and oversight plan. The equipment on this page is typically available for all users in the UW–Madison Biochemistry Department to access for their research needs.

Looking Glass


This display can project images in 3D but no VR goggles are needed. This display would best be used for allowing teams or small class groups to visualize a structure in 3D simultaneously. While it is not as immersive as a VR experience, it would facilitate collaborative interactions with larger groups simultaneously. This could potentially be installed in one permanent location (BIF/BOC, cryo-EM facility, Or even room 2317) or mounted on a stand so that it can be “checked out” by users.
