ok I know this is still just fantasy, but wouldn't it be cool to have holographic TV? Is it possible in the near future? You could actually place it in the middle of the room and watch it from any angle. It would be a trip if it was actual size actors and cartoon characters.... Just a fun idea.

Is this possible in the foreseeable future?

That idea would be really cool and probably not as far into the future as we might imagine, for Japan anyway.
As much as it pain me to say this, its true. The United States is so far behind other countries in areas of this type of technology. 10-15 years ago High Def T.V's were pretty much the standard in Japan. Despite the many miles of fiber optic cables we've laid the US still lags behind many other countries in broadband access. I realize that these examples arent really very important but
it gives people an idea of where we stand in relation to the rest of the world.
I can only guess why HD has just now became the standard here but I have an idea that the Networks had some say so in it. Perhaps the costs involved in upgrading their signals to HD was something that they didnt want to deal with. I'm sure the reason is out there somewhere and I'm sure there are rumors about it.
Perhaps someone here has some knowledge about this.
As for me, i feel ripped off for all the years that I needlessly spent watching Television in 480i or is it p? lol
I have more to say on the topic but im starving

Koronos thankyou for the reply, I realize that in light of all the serious matters being posted here this one may seem a bit silly. One thing I have to say is that there have been several posts that state America is the most technicalogically advanced country in the world. Here are the results from one source on the matter. www.finnfacts.com...

Ahhh, "Technologically"...

Not silly at all, this is why there are sections like this available for reporting and debate. Unfortunately we are losing our number 1 status in many other areas as well and to be honest, I don't have a clue what should be done about it.
Anyway, I'm really sorry i took your thread so off topic .
The possibility of holographic 3D Television would be awesome though.
I wonder if it is already a possibility using Virtual Reality TV?
That would be so awesome, especially if you were able to integrate it into, like a Die Hard movie, it would appear as if you were standing right there in the movie hehe

Oh and by the way, i hope you dont mind that I added you to my friends list

Check this out we may be getting closer! And with nanotechnology it may just be sooner than we think. www.aist.go.jp...

france telecom seem to have a program to propose 3D content to his clients without glasses(that is important).the system has been tested and received a very good feedback

2008 seem to be the key year but i don't know if it's accurate

Also,Companies such as Sharp, Sanyo, Toshiba or NTT Docomo are currently working on 3D technology

A TV that gives the illusion of 3D is actually very easy. Just refract the image the same way you do with the usual 3D pictures....

However, an actual 3D image in real space, of which you can wander around is a little tricky... actually it's very tricky... but it's been done! I cannot remember which company did it, but I know one of the first things they did with it was advertise nike shoes using it... customers could walk up, press a button, look at the shoe they want in any size, and rotate the image by moving their hands around the base of the projector.

Imagine what it would do for the pornographic industry.

yes, but I'll point out that this is simply the US consumer market trailing japan (and europe in many cases as well, especially with networking / wireless technologies). The US is just as up-to-date as Japan in many areas when it comes to technology, it's the commercial manufacturers, retailers, market trend analyzers, advertising companies, and legal system that makes everything take so long to come out.

Besides, in the states its common for a company to hold back the latest products until either a) competition releases something first, or is about to or b) all of the stock from their outdated models are sold out first.

What gets me is that I saw this technology 40 years ago at Disneyland.The head in the haunted mansion, the dancers floating around and the little holographic of the lady as you leave the ride. I went this summer and took the kids and it was the same technology! I figured it may have been updated since I was a kid... Makes you wonder if they hold back the technology so as to not raise suspisions.

And yes you could actually participate with pornography, although it is not my favorite field. Not enough art and too much desensitizing of nature.

Well if we could get rid of government schools and start teaching our children the right things, we'd all be alot smarter.


Here's some images that float in thin air and you can interact with them.

Here's a cool video.

And another one

I'd say the technology for Hologram 3-D TV is not to far away.

Its probably the geographical size and relatively low population density of the United States more than anything. The cost to upgrade the entire national infrastructure for broadband access or HDTV, for example, would be enormous, both in terms of time, labor, and equipment costs. There are quite a few areas west of the Mississippi River in this country where the population density is so low that it may not even be economically profitable to do so unless or until the cost of implementation in these areas drops as the technology matures.

This is the real reason the US often seems to lag in implementing new technologies. Although the population density in 'fly-over' country is low, there's still probably 100 million people out there (or more). You can't establish a national standard which excludes so many people. As a result, it takes longer for the US to fully transition to new technologies than it does in geographically smaller nations which have much higher population densities.

Yes the holographic technology is definateley there, just highly expensive. The "Musion Eyeliner" HD Projection System is the current leader. Watch some of their impressive showreels here

Plus this:-

You should be able to get a 3d television in about 10 years or so Lg is working on it at this moment the team from the gadet show in the uk got to have a look at next gen tv and it was some impressive stuff.

What was it that poster mentioned about interacting with holograms? That's one way to deal with overpopulation. Give everyone an interactive Kate Moss : Home Edition.

Holo TV's would definitely be super sweet.

I remeber hearing something a while back about a company wanting to do what was shown in the video above with concerts. That you could go to some famous venue, and watch Hendrix do a show, or go see Pink Floyd in their 70's splendor. How sweet would that be?

Also on something semi-related, not that its Holo-stuff, but some TV manufacturers are trying to craft a TV in which two different programs could be viewed and heard by two different people onb the same set.

Within the next decade, we are going to have some crazy advances in the field of personal entertainment.

That would be very cutting edge if the music industry takes holographic real life imaging and has for instance the lead walking around through the crowd! It would be a riot literally! But it would bring the technology to the forefront.

On the other hand it could be used for crowd control if it also came with the ability to communicate or even zap unruly trouble makers. The possibilities are truly endless.

Alas, Eyeliner isn't really a hologram, nor is it really 3D. A lot of marketing wonks will label any 3D display or visual effects system a "hologram" because they don't have a clue that the term has a real and definite meaning.

Eyeliner is a "Pepper's Ghost" effect using 21st century materials. Basically, you set up the stage with planes of a Saran Wrap like material that is very reflective at one angle, then you position DLP projectors underneath. It looks like you can walk around, behind etc the projection - and you can, since the "real" actor is walking in back of the transparent plastic screens.
