Now, this is a cool new tech.


Researchers pave way towards integration of 3-D holography into electronics like smart phones, computers and TVs, with development of nano-hologram 1,000 times thinner than a human hair.

The potential uses for this tech are numerous, and will benefit many varied sciences.

"Integrating holography into everyday electronics would make screen size irrelevant -- a pop-up 3D hologram can display a wealth of data that doesn't neatly fit on a phone or watch. "From medical diagnostics to education, data storage, defence and cyber security, 3D holography has the potential to transform a range of industries and this research brings that revolution one critical step closer."


It is not mass producible yet, but ........

Dr Zengyi Yue, who co-authored the paper with BIT's Gaolei Xue, said: "The next stage for this research will be developing a rigid thin film that could be laid onto an LCD screen to enable 3D holographic display. "This involves shrinking our nano-hologram's pixel size, making it at least 10 times smaller. "But beyond that, we are looking to create flexible and elastic thin films that could be used on a whole range of surfaces, opening up the horizons of holographic applications.

I can't watch the videos, I did read article, but this reminds me a lot of the cup on kick-starter dubbed "vessel", maybe different spelling. They basically claimed they were developing a mass spectrometer the size of a cup without any tech actually backing it up, all while taking peoples money for it.

What I am saying is that all these company's make the claims but where is the new tech, seems all smoke a mirrors to me.

I get to see holodecks become real after all before I die, SWEET! I got at least fifty years left if I play my cards right.
This phone thing seems fun too. 3d and holograms and augmented reality, .. oh my!

we need the new tech where they are making light solid. That's how a Holo-Deck would work.

Perhaps Australia is at the forefront of this tech?

Here is another company from my city of Adelaide..

There's got to be some sort of science fiction influencing research and engineers to undertake this type of project. It's more than likely the entertainment/social media industry exploit this technology, either way looking forward to how this all pans out.
