Transparent projection offers the opportunity for students and educators to turn nearly any large glass surface into a space for dynamic communication and learning. In the classroom, this technology allows for the creation of convincing holographic displays of objects and monuments that are typically seen in three dimensions. In other settings, displays of student generated research and design content and faculty research are possible as well. This allows for better dissemination of creative and scholarly content in a novel and eye-catching way.
Team Bios: The team currently consists of Jon Frey and Daniel Trego. Jon is a classical archaeologist who teaches in the Department of Art, Art History and Design. He is also director of the MSU Excavations at Isthmia. Daniel Trego is an Educational Media Design Specialist in the College of Arts and Letters and a director of the MSU iOS Design Lab.
What are some of the successes?
We have not yet been able to implement this technology. The funding arrived later in the term than anticipated, so we remain in the fabrication stage with implementation in the classroom scheduled for Fall 22 / Spring 23.
