Proto Inc. Receives Canadian Patent for Holographic Display Device
Proto Inc., the holographic display company, has had its 2022 USPTO patent recognized by the Canadian Intellectual Property Office’s department of Innovation, Science, and Economic Development for the company’s holographic display devices and methods.
Canadian patent #3146969 recognizes Proto Founder and CEO David Nussbaum as the inventor of “a holographic display device and methods of use for displaying a hologram-like image on a transparent monitor positioned at the front end of a three-dimensional interior lit display box.”
Proto is the “first self-contained, plug & play, human-sized, portable hologram device, which runs on the Proto OS and the cloud and is constantly updated with new software features and applications including the new Proto mobile beam app.” The Proto M, a desktop version of the Epic, which also runs on Proto’s OS and software platform, began shipping in Q4 2022.
The patent describes Proto as “A holographic display device for presenting a hologram-like image…[providing] a realistic appearance. A unique image-capturing system for capturing the image to be displayed on the transparent monitor is also disclosed. The image capturing system transmits the image to the holographic display device in real-time or as a pre-recorded image….” The document also points out Proto’s onboard cameras and speakers, making it self-contained and capable of telepresence.
“This recognition of the originality of Proto’s hardware and methods means so much to our whole team of executives and engineers,” said Proto Inc. Inventor and CEO David Nussbaum. “Canada has been home to some truly memorable accomplishments for Proto – this patent will help us protect our IP and continue to innovate.”
