Hologram Advancements

If you have time, read the article. If you do not have time, watch the video! This is really interesting convergence of technology and it will be very interesting to see how this evolved over the next few years.

This reminds me of an IBM innovation in the 80s. It was a 3D hologram display system. It utilized rotating plastic paddles and an imaging system to create a 360 viewable display that allowed you to see rendered objects from any angle. It was not a true hologram but used timed lasers to highlight points on the spinning paddles to create shapes. It was extremely innovative at the time but I never heard/saw any commercial products come from it. Shame.

I hope this fairs better. It looks to be fairly inexpensive from a components perspective.
