Maltese Student finalist of the Google Science Fair 2012

The project of Melvin Zammit, winner of the NSTF Contest for Young Scientists programme,  investigates a new way to display 3D images. It is based on the idea that if more than one transparent image is put in front of each other, a 3D image forms. This concept could be applied in 3D modelling, in gaming, 3D telephony, in hospitals and many other applications that require a realistic volumetric display.
