Putting CNN’s recent questionable hologram used during the U.S. Presidential election aside the fact is that it is inevitable that at some point we will have some sort of 3D projection for our computers. Not just for industrial use or big TV news networks but for regular folks like you and me. If this is indeed the case than maybe the picture above and video I found on the TechEBlog are the beginning experiments in consumer level 3D hologram projection.
The Holocube; available in 10-inch, 15-inch and 17-inch models, is a projector that stores video in the self contained hard drive and uses the video to create 3D holograms. The device can store up to 18 hours of compressed video at 4Mb/s which is turned into the hologram display with a flick of a switch. Unfortunately I couldn’t find anything on price but you can always head over to the Holocube site and do some hunting around while you watch some additional videos.
