Researchers from the University of Toronto have created a system which allows for direct interaction by gesturel with virtual objects contained in a 3d (length x width x height) volumetric display.

The method used is to track the user's finger's around the edge of the display with four cameras, and triangulate the position thet are trying to indicate - and access.

Any application that displays three-dimensional graphics can make use of this interaction technique. It first appeared at the User Interface Software and Technology 2004.
