Abstract

Since the introduction of optical trap displays in 2018, there has been significant interest in further developing this technology. In an effort to channel interest in the most productive directions, this work seeks to illuminate those areas that, in the authors’ opinion, are most critical to the ultimate success of optical trap displays as a platform for aerial 3D imaging. These areas include trapping, scanning, scaling, robustness, safety, and occlusion.
