Foggy screens are usually an annoyance, but fog screens – where images are projected onto a fine mist – could open up the possibility of interactive holograms and free-floating displays. To make those projections a bit clearer, a team at the University of Sussex has found a way to make shape-shifting fog screens that can keep objects in focus and let multiple users work together.
