3DIcon Hosts US Congressional Staff for Oklahoma to Demonstrate Its Eyeglass-Free 3D Volumetric Display Technology
TULSA, OK -- (Marketwired) -- 09/02/14 -- 3DIcon Corporation (OTCQB: TDCP): U.S. Congressional staff providing support on military issues from the offices of Senator James Inhofe (Ranking Member, Sen. Armed Services Comm.); Rep. James Bridenstine (Member, House Armed Services Comm.) (R-1st District); Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-2nd District); Rep. Frank Lucas (R-3rd District); and Rep. James Lankford (R-5th District) recently visited the 3DIcon's Corporate Headquarters in Tulsa, OK to view a laboratory scale demonstration and meet with personnel to discuss the eyeglasses-free 3D volumetric display technology being developed by the Company.
The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) continues to place a high priority on the need for new technologies to allow analysts to better exploit 3D data, including advances in data visualization. 3DIcon's CSpace® is a next generation eyeglass-free volumetric 3D display that could provide the analyst with an animated, real-time, 360° viewing experience.
John O'Connor, Chairman of the Board, Dr. Hakki Refai, CTO, and Doug Freitag, the Company's Federal Business Development Specialist, welcomed U.S. Congressional Staff during their recent tour of 3DIcon Corporation in Tulsa, OK to see first hand 3DIcon's CSpace® technology. During the site visit, they met with Company personnel and board members to discuss the benefits of eyeglass-free 3D volumetric displays, the role that 3DIcon is playing in providing a solution to the growing need for visualization of 3D data, and the impact this capability could have on the nation, Oklahoma, and Tulsa.
"It was a privilege to host the Congressional Staff at 3DIcon today," stated Victor Keen, CEO. "We appreciate all the work they are doing on behalf of our business, our district and the many Oklahoma shareholders. It was a unique opportunity for us to showcase our technology and discuss the role 3D displays could play in the future."
"The capability provided by a eyeglass-free 3D volumetric display cannot be fully appreciated from a 2D picture," stated Doug Freitag, Federal Business Development Specialist. "We are grateful that Congressional staff included a tour of 3DIcon during their recess to see the technology first hand."
3DIcon is the exclusive licensee of the technology originally developed by the University of Oklahoma-Tulsa. 3DIcon continues to develop the technology and formed a strategic joint development partnership with SCHOTT Defense earlier this year to provide expertise in laser-activated glass that is an enabling technology for 3DIcon's display technology.
