Today, the ever increasing number of controls in automobile and aviation cockpits leads to the cluttering of various interfaces (keyboards, switches, panels, etc...). LCD touch screens have proved to be a good alternative to reduce cluttering by reconfiguring in real time different interfaces, appearing on demand as they are needed by the user. However, the underlying screen still remains cumbersome and fragile glass device. We present a novel way to produce virtual consoles and interfaces by projecting diffractive images and sensing the position of the fingers by the use of IR diffractive optics.
