Japanese technology firm Asukanet Co., Ltd., has invested an undisclosed amount in Holo Industries LLC, the manufacturer of contactless, Holographic Touch products. Asukanet is the world’s leading provider of holographic plates.
Holographic Touch is a disruptive technology for contactless interaction: For the first time, users do more than simply see a holograph—they can safely touch, pinch, scroll, and spin any image effortlessly in mid-air. The technology is made possible with Asukanet’s ASKA3D holographic plates, sensors, and Holo Industries’ proprietary software and hardware components. The resulting holographic image is clear and precise and provides an impressive 50-millisecond response time.
“This investment is an important part of our strategy of increasing sales and adoption of holographic plates through integration in end-user solutions in banking, mobility, consumer, hospitality, and other applications,” says Yuji Matsuo, Asukanet’s CEO. “Our positive relationship and the rapid adoption of Holographic Touch by a number of forward-thinking companies in our key vertical markets has convinced us Holo Industries’ technology is the future of safe, germ-free interaction.”
Holo Industries has designed and delivered Holographic Touch products to companies with applications ranging from ATM and point of sale to hotel check-in, medical, transportation, elevators, vending, retail, and more.
