NOVA is a 3d voxel display. It was developed by ETH Zurich together with private companies. NOVA at Mainstation Zurich is made of 25'000 voxels (each containing 12 LEDs). It has a refresh rate of 25Hz and a color resolution of 24Bit (16,777,216 colors), which makes it pretty amazing :-).
horao gmbh, an ETH spin-off company, is further developing and marketing NOVA.
