British scientists managed to recreate mid-air sensory experiences by controlling sound waves to project 3-D haptic holograms that can be seen and felt

“Touchable holograms, immersive virtual reality that you can feel and complex touchable controls in free space are all possible ways of using this system,”

By making many waves arrive at a focal point at the same time, a detectable pressure difference is created at that point, which exerts on a user's skin when they hit the hand.

Very coool! Especially with other advances like the Oculus Rift, technology is becoming very exciting! Who knows what we will have 20 years from now? Our world will undoubtedly be very different

As long as he/she/it vibrates in all the right places.

According to the article:


Immersive, highly visual, 3D environments are now on the horizon after British scientists managed to recreate mid-air sensory experiences by controlling sound waves to project 3-D haptic holograms that can be seen and felt.


Hm, I would have never thought about sounds.

S&F for the find mate!

Invisible holograms touched and felt or it didn't happen.

Now if they can combine this with some form of visible holograms then they've got something special.

This technology could be a goddess-send for blind people, the possibilities in that field alone are almost unlimited.

Light sabers are next.

Good observation. The sound might be similar as well. Hmmmmm. The holograph of the Princess asking Obi-wan for help already seems dated.

That's easily done. You just need to hold a reflector in place with one large very strong magnet and a few slightly less stronger magnets. That creates a stable Langrangian point for the reflector to stay in place. Then you just bounce multiple laser beams from fibre-optics at that reflector. Instant light saber

In 20 years, an angry sith is going to build a Death Star and blow up the earth. We'll need our sound-light sabers to stop it.

I can certainly imagine my avatar with such a weaponry upgrade.

seriously though: sounds are not exactly a step towards lightsaber - the two are quite unrelated, for instance a lasers would keep on working in a total vacuum, whereas sound waves cannot cross a vacuum.

Sound is a mechanical wave, light is an electromagnetic oscillation.

I was thinking more along the lines of a light club, which would be a hologram with a sound barrier. It would look and sound like a light saber and you could hit with it, but no cutting.

I think they (the source) needs to fire their editor.

A hologram can not be invisible and visible at the same time. It's either one or the other.

Think about all this from a web consultant perspective. It's maddening to think of having to keep up with all of it. Can you imagine clients demanding their product be physically manipulated through their website?

I'm even more excited about keeping up with the social networking aspects. Picture a site like ATS 20 years from now.

All jokes aside....your on the money.

The lives that could be touched and changed by this is where it's at. Let entertainment fall by the wayside. If only, in a small way, it can give people their lives back and also give those hope who have never had the chance to viscerally experience it..

Shut up and take my money.

When I first read your post the words 'light club' transferred to my brain in the form of an image of an actual "Light Club", like a Night Club, only lots of the people-shaped things moving and dancing around inside are invisible holograms made of sound.

Which begs the question, who will be the first invisible hologram to break the sound barrier..... (and to go more scientifictionly, if these things are built large enough they could be used to move storm clouds around and nudge hurricanes onto different paths)

I know dawg...it sucks.

Did they develop this for the porn industry?
You all know this is where it will go.

Nicely spoken. Years ago I knew a man who worked on one of the early reading machines for the blind, the kind that speak the words they scan over. He was blind himself. Seeing the progress of his work was what made me think that maybe this technology could be used to expand other aspects of living with blindness...

Just imagine huge hologram highways. Temporary predesigned/preprogramed buildings that assemble and collapse in an instant with the flick of a switch. Even the furnature could be holographic with simulated cushions. Bullet proof shields, force fields...the applications are virtually limitless. All we need is to supply the power and leard to control the sound waves in proportion to the holograms.

Hell, then the can program a Light Club and we could take our light-clubs with us Light Clubbing.

This sounds like the plasma ships that have been photographed around the world....UFOs made of light and sound with beings inside them....
no wonder they are able to do such strange majical manouvering......
appearing and disappearing at will.....
the face of war would be changed radically..... when they project these things....which ones do you shoot at?
Can Radar or infr red tell them from the real targets?
Just how hard can a hologram be? Hard enough to knock you out?
Imagine a super computer could get hold of this and create a holographic army to rule mankind......er....maybe....?

When we can have pocket fusion power plants who knos just about anything will be possible. Of course anything includes all of the negatives too and those could very easily destroy us no?

Anyway going from pressure centers to solid surfaces is maybe a different ballgame. So holosound furniture might be a ways off.
