A company called Red that usually develops high-end cameras for movies and television series is delving into the world of mobile phones, releasing
their Red Hydrogen in 2018. This is not only a mobile phone but a holographic projector as well!
So far, I cannot find any video of this technology in action, and it appears as if Red is being highly secretive. However, here is a demo of the
device on YouTube, although the holograms have been blurred out. Brad Pitt has also seen the device in action.
The aluminum version will cost $1,195. Here is a video showing some examples of the holographic display.
The technology is superior to and not similar to the technology used by such things as the 3DS, does not require glasses, and allows you to look at
the projected image from different angles.
Red is promising a phone with supposedly revolutionary tech: a "holographic" display known as 4-View that not only provides a glasses-free 3D
image, but also lets you look around and behind objects by displaying multiple perspectives on whatever you're watching.
As a camera company, Red has designed the phone to be modular, which means that you can place customized high-end lenses on it for the occasion.
3D holographic imagery that can be viewed from any angle has been called such things as 4-view, multiview, light field display, or multiscopic 3D.
It will be possible to shoot 4-view holographs with the Red Hydrogen, however, that will require an additional attachment.
As you could have probably figured out by now, this is not just a concept but has a working prototype (which was shown in the first YouTube video
above). Even so, the company is being highly secretive at the moment when it comes to showing off its display.
Where will this technology end up in the future?

Yeah, I can see from the comments that the price point is a little high. I agree. I’m hoping this technology eventually lowers in price and appears
in more situations in the future.
I’m not going to go out and buy one, but it shows promise for those willing to wait or even those looking for a company to invest in.
I paid $200 for a PS4 and $200 for a PSVR headset, plus $60 for Skyrim VR and $40 for the PlayStation camera. The idea was for me to experience first
gen VR tech. Saving for that took me a few months, during which I had to reduce spending. I don’t think I’ll be saving up $1,200 any time

I need to know when i can implant my spying device into my head.
It´s so uncomfortable that i need to carry around my personal spying device, so that others can make the world a safer place for me and my fellow
earth citizens, with our data...
