A new kind of holographic displays, a connection between you and millions of other people, a digital waterfall, and much more amazing stuff in today's issue of Liked by Immersives, a weekly bulletin curated with love by your Immersive team. Please enjoy.

Project Looking Glass
What it is A new species of holographic displays.
Why we like it In our never ending quest for new displays, news keep coming. This time it’s a new volumetric display aka hologram. Inside is a combination of different optical films, transparent materials, lenses, and an LCD display that creates 45 interlaced views of different angles of the 3D scene. No glasses, headsets or motion tracking needed!

Project Move Mirror by Google
What it is An AI that connects your movement with millions of other people.  
Why we like it This is another Google’s experiments that makes people feel good about AI. This time AI connects its users with millions of other people around the globe: it traces user’s movements and places it against photographs of people from its database. Simple, emotional, fun.

Project Explaining the Invisible by Atelier Markgraph for Viessmann
What it is Augmented reality explainer show. 
Why we like it Using sleight of hands to tell a story is a centuries-old profession called magician. When tech comes in, everyone can be a magician and tell a better story with live CG effects illustrating their stories.

Project ADA - analog interactive installation by Karina Smigla-Bobinski
What it is A kinetic sculpture that draws on walls of a room.
Why we like it A helium-filled transparent sphere floats inside a white room. About a hundred of handles stick out of it. Each handle doubles as a pencil, so when people move this sphere around the room, it leaves multiple traces until all the walls, the ceiling and the floor are marked with some abstract drawings. This sculpture is very interactive and is absolutely analogue.

Project Digital Waterfall by Jessica Lloyd-Jones
What it is A combination of falling water droplets and projection.
Why we like it Once again, creativity is not coming up something completely new, but rather combining two known things into something never seen before. A projector shining into water droplets creates ethereal effect of a freeze frame where water stands still in mid-air.
