I will let the video speak for itself. Imagine the implications for the coming wave of Augmented Reality which will soon sweep the planet. Or project bLu3b34m! Net 3.0?




Is there anything you can't do with a Wii-mote?

So close to the last invention that mankind will ever make, the holo deck after that who needs anything else you could be anywhere at anytime
S+F Mate has restored my faith in this site after so much political and racist garbage has been floating around.

I love it!

So Star Trek continues to set the pace.....

So you mean to tell me I may actually own one of those holographic computers one day? You know the ones from every sci-fi movie where you move a few floating panels around and it simply hacks into the 'mainframe' for you?


But seriously, that is some very cool technology.

so can you see those holograms mid air without needing glasses or looking through a webcam?

Great tech indeed, its definitely going into the right direction. What I would like to see though is interaction with the nervous-system too, creating the sensation of actually touching the holographic object, feeling it's shape and form.

Just wait and see when I patent my NeuroDeck idea

Really? This is new?

I thought they had this a long time ago. just not in public.

Yeah I remember hearing someting about this sort of technology last year, forget where.

Good of you to find and post it.

I am IN AGREEMENT with others who reference Star Trek. It is becoming more and more obvious that the "fictional" (but thoroughly logical) devices seen, imagined, by the science fiction writers and producers, have been taken as s sort of "challenge" by modern techno-geeks.

Star Trek creators and writers likely had NO IDEA that their influence would reach this far. BUT, it is the essence of imagination that sometimes fuels discovery and invention.

Hi Weedwhacker,

Always great to see your posts.

Apart from the obvious applications that will inevitably follow (that won't necessarily require a hand to do the feeling...) can see Google Earth doing real time street views with car controls that allow us to drive anywhere they have filmed....

Or equally - to fly....

Peace!

I am just a little curious ...he mentioned touch less light switches as being a one of the future uses of the tech...but I have installed infra red light switches in apartments that I have worked on that does the same thing you wave your hand in front and it dims..you push toward with your palm and it goes off.opposite turns it on...so how is this realivent in that aspect.....

I can see this being used for video games and porn....the 2 main reasons processers have come so far so fast....with medicine and science bringing up the rear...

Off topic but does anyone have a link to the video for the waTer screen or holographic show that was posted here a while back.....

Things are only impossible until they're not.

Cool invention.

Yeah, that was amazing as well! Here ya go:





Here's the thread:

Imagine the convergence of this, "smart dust", and augmented reality. I think I can see the potential for a great a great sci-fi novel here...

Beautiful, but has NOTHING TO DO with "touchable holograms"!

Sorry.

That YT video showed, well....nothing more advanced than a motion picture projected on a screen is.....

Seriously?

Uhh, what's your problem? Another poster wanted the link, and it is kinda related as
1.) It's hologram like
2.)It's Japanese

LOL!!!!!

No problem, none at all!!!


I enjoyed, so all's OK.

Just, was thnkin'....(some) people might have gotten wrong impressions, but I guess I'm just becoming a little jaded, lately, as I read through so much of ATS.

Back to the OP....the concept of 'ultrasonics' is intriguing. Not sure that this is the same "feel", in the sense (pun) of Human 'touch', and that sensory aparatus that we take for granted.

However, it IS a beginning, as mentioned,

and worth watching for further developments.

I can envision, in application, initially some gaming interactive formats, perhaps. Tactile inter-action is IMPORTANT (like the "Wii" controller, for instance).

EVEN the keyboard yo are typing on (and which most of us take for granted) has a tactile interface....but most people are unaware, because it is "built-in", and seems so "natural". There is NOTHING "natural" about it! Anyone who orginally learned to type on a mechanical typewriter will attest to this.

BUT, it is a 'new' generation
(sigh)...and sometimes these explanations will fall on deaf ears.....it's like trying to describe "spats" to a current fashionista.....

Ain't that the truth.

Those water screens are cool but Disney's been using them for their in park shows for a while. Fantasmic since the 80's I believe. They are coming out with an even better show called World of Color at California Adventure this summer. Really looking forward to it. Here's a video of what you can expect. I know it's off topic but other members already expressed in interest and I think it's absolutely cool and worth sharing.



Anyway, this technology is amazing. Just think of the possibilities this technology will bring forward. Once again, leave it to the Japanese to always take us to the next level. I freakin love Japan.

WHEW!!

cool how people all think it means shagging images of their hottest imagination chicks in a holodeck, when really its nothing like that.

Groovy how people think its the next best thing in technology, when its... well.. not.



The reaction here is actually more impressive than the OP's info.

That's funny..

ATS - "racist racist nurr nurr racist ignorant nurr nu.. Oh look a hologram I can touch, NICE!!"
