A volumetric display is one in which the display forms within a 3D volume, as opposed to on a flat surface. It is often easier for the eye to read volumetric displays, because when you focus on an object in the distance, it really is further away from the eye than the ones close up.

There are several potential ways this display is working. One of the simplest and most plausible is a colour e-paper display behind a completely transparent display medium. The e-paper handles the picture, 'refreshing' the colour display to a matt black when the layer in front, the graphical display is activated. As soon as that deactivates, the 'oil' is re-drawn. Simple, elegant, and still far beyond us.
