Time to replace my flat screen. I can only imagine how long before it is massed marketed. Imagine watching football and getting hit by a line backer. Or even playing some video games like the first person shooters.

Technology is moving at a faster pace every year,all these new things are great & i hope we get to see them in practical use in our lifetime.
Holograhic girlfriend,i like the sound of that

At the present rate of progress, it is almost impossible to imagine any technical feat that cannot be achieved - if it can be achieved at all - within the next few hundred years.
- Arthur C. Clarke

That about sums this up

But this is suppopsed to be an American invention.We are the ones who do the inventing.

In my opinion they stole this technology from American Labs and are going make tons of money from American brains and toil and sweat and dollars.

This is wrong.We should have them arrested and extradited for espionage

A programme on tv confirmed that Japanese cannot think creatively.They can only copy other peoples ideas.

So again we should launch a full investigation how they came up this invention which belongs to us Americans.

They stole LCD technology as well from us and cell phones and too many others.

All labs should tighten up security and bar anyone suspicious looking.


Please be kidding with this post.

Assuming that's sarcasm, to be fair, the cellphone IS an American invention, as are modern active-matrix LCDs. The old calculator type LCD is a Swiss invention (quickly licensed to Japanese electronics manufacturers.).

If it isn't sarcasm, that's some crazy stuff, yo.



But to be accurate, the invention in the article is a thing that makes specific parts of the air feel different to the touch, not something that makes thin air tangible. It's way cooler than the next alternative, putting a rumble device on the accelerometer pack the person has to hold for it to know where your hand is, but it doesn't achieve anything fundamentally different yet.

We're a ways yet from proper invisible forcefields.

This is probably one of the most ignorant things I've ever read. Please watch less TV. Just because we invented something, doesn't mean we're the only ones allowed to improve apon it.

And I'm quite sure the Japanese are perfectly able of inventing things.

ANYWAY, back on topic.

While this is cool, I suspect that the only places you'll see these kinds of things are in museums, and planetariums. I suspect that the costs, lighting conditions needed, etc, will make them unfeasable when we have much more convienient technologies to tell us what we need to know.

They have been using advanced versions of this technology for many years in military applications. Mostly for engineering simulations, modeling, and training. There are entire rooms that have hyper-realistic display systems covering every inch of specially designed rooms which can project these virtual objects that are completely tangible without the need of specialized glasses, gloves or suits.

That technology is what was described to me by a man I befriended many years ago. He basically said it was a "Real life Star Trek Holo Deck" and that it was absolutely amazing. He said it could create anything and you could touch it and feel it and manipualte it just like real life. He described the room as being made of a chicken-wire like mesh and having millions of ultra tiny specs of light inbedded within it. He even talked about "Immersion Sound" which made you really feel like you were hearing things that were there.

He always said he wondered how long before they'd be in every home, and predicted we'd see it sometime after the year 2000. This was in the mid 1980s at the time. At least we got surround sound I suppose.

I hope your not serious...for if you are...you shouldn't be participating on these forums. You Americans can be so amazingly arrogant...

EDIT: Ooo...sorry, I see this poster has already been deep fried...
Also, I don't mean to be picky, but try using paragraphs...and spaces after your periods (full stops)...

This all sounds very amazing. It could be very useful in cutting back on costly and excessive manufacturing. Just wait though until the power goes out and your holographic lamps, phones, keyboards, and lightswitches vaporize right under your fingertips, and that holographic monitor you were checking your email with would really be a dissapointment when it becomes air.

Here is video of the technology.

First, the doll-size porn figures, then the ultra realistic, full-size Japanese love dolls, now this??

Good that many are noticing..

Been thinking about this thread for a while,and it occured to me if you were able to amp up the ultrasound power/frequency,you would have a FORCEFEILD!
A real forcefield-think about that,no more hard hats needed,let alone the space/military applications.

Anyone know more about this tech-could it one day be used as a forcefield?
It sure sounds like one to me.
