This could be an amazing instrument for health care as well. Imagine the chance to look at a human body in such detail without using a cadaver. Simply amazing.

And of course

Right along with electronic health management.

Soon all you will need is a person to input the data and the computer will do the rest. No more doctors, and since anyone can follow instructions with a hologram showing you, and teaching you, step by step, no need for those nurses either.

Of course mistakes happen, so they will have us sign a waiver that will not allow us to sue, but it won't matter. We will be getting the best state of the art health care.

I don't think people realize how quickly hologram technology had progressed over the past few years.



I know, didn't!

Great videos! Thanks!

They mention this will work in Cell Phones,
assuming that will translate to tablets etc.

Being that portable, I can see app developers
making bank. This would be awesome in
University Studies...very engaging.

Ha! Remember when it was common place day to day
to talk on the phone rather than text?

We're half way to crippled already.

I am in very much the same boat as you, regarding some of the technological breakthroughs occurring at the moment. On one level, I understand that these things are advancements of massive scale, bringing the science fiction future which many of us craved to see since we were children, right into our nations, cities, towns, and homes. I am impressed by these things, every new discovery, every new application of a great technology.

But I am also troubled, because unlike the lofty personages of the likes of Kirk and Picard, the human beings of today cannot be trusted with technology which has been around since the dark ages, and I am very concerned that our psychological and emotional evolution has already been vastly outpaced by our ability to innovate.

All of that being said, this is a fantastic step forward, and could revolutionise a great many fields. Just imagine a CT scanner with a holographic display for example! The possibilities are staggering!

“A femtosecond laser manages to ablate the thin film material on a substrate quickly, producing centimeter-scale holograms for practical applications,” he added.

...

The challenge right now for Yue and his colleagues is to find a method for improving the efficiency and quality of the device they have. In the future, Yue says they will start looking at flexible holograms for wider applications.

Spectrum.IEEE.org - World's Thinnest Hologram Promises 3D Images on Our Mobile Phones.

The film is burned onto a substrate. They said they need to find a harder substance to affix this to before it can be widespread. So that is what they are going to work on. The film is a "topologic insulator" which causes the interference patterns (i.e., the holographic image) when light is passed through.

Frikken' lasers!

Hey, thanks for that addition!

This is going to be a real game changer. Let's hope humanity
can rise and survive the leaps and bounds.

Can't agree with you more. Being born into tech I always tried my best to keep up and so far I think I am doing good, but nowadays, damn, even I am having trouble keeping up, def going fast, I don't wanna say too fast but kinda feels that way. Now in 3-6months we are upgrading rather than 1-3yrs. Where did all this come from?

There is always that but can you imagine looking at pictures from out in space? Those recent images of Jupiter would be pretty cool rendered by a hologram.

Oh yeah


It's like techno-vertigo. Now and then there's a woozy feeling like being at the top of the hill on a roller coaster.

Tchk tchk tchk tchk...near the top...closer...closer...
