Microsoft Applied Sciences researchers have created a concept 3D PC thats has been created to enable uses to manipulate applications within a 3D environment.
The transparent screen on the new 3D PC concept makes it look like a visual trick. But as soon as you start interacting with your hands behind the screen, the illusion is shown in all its glory. Watch a video after the jump showing the concept in action, using bBehind the screen overlay interactions.
