Gushed Light Field: Video Showcase of Aerosol-Based Fog Display


We present a new method of aerial imaging
by aerosol-based fog screens. Conventional fog screens are easily affected
by the air flow and their systems occupy large areas. In this study, we propose to add new tradeoffs
between limited display time and payloads. We employ aerosol distribution from off-the-shelf
spray. The results showed that the minimum weight
of our system is around 600 g screen raise time is approximately 0.5 sec,
disappearance time is approximately 0.4 sec, and maximum wind speed under which we can project images is approximately 10 m/sec. We conducted user studies on wearable application, aerial imaging with drone or radio-controlled
model car, display embodied in the environment, and Multi-viewpoint aerosol based fog display. We also consider combinations of nozzles and
sprays. By simulating scattering of aerosol distribution
and evaluate combinations of nozzles and sprays, we present a design method for our display. We believe that the results of this study
contribute to exploration of new application areas for fog displays and expand expression for
entertainments and interactivity.
