What about 3d TV

  1. Dec 15, 2006 #1
    I have been thinking about a new 3D TV that uses a flat platform with millions of tiny tubes to project electric pulses that would be undetectable untill it explode in mid air at different leangths and color orientation using a program that would calculate the amount of energy it would take for both of these properties. My idea is that if this could be done then the platform would thus create a 3D image above it. Could this be possible?

    Not as you've described it.

    "Electric pulses" that explode in a spark of color in mid-air are purely fantasy. Those words have no physical meaning.

    Look up volumetric displays.
