ok looking at this video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PlUdc5D5L_E

half way through they demonstrate the ability to look around the car by moving your body around infront of the screen.

now remembering that they have just invented genuine 3D TV what is the next step for multimedia?

i can see that in the very near future there is going to be a link between the 3D TV aspect and gaming BUT what does everybody think the next step could be? could we be closer to inventing "iron man style" holographic computer/TV interface systems?

incase you havnt seen the film:

is the projection of images into thin air even possible???

everything is possible, you just have to figure out how to do it.

That would be awesome. let's be the first people to invent it and keep it to ourselves.

I thought that video was highly fake? Like, yes, we do have motion sensors, but they're not good enough to detect movement to drive a car.

... That or it requires you to be at a certain angle to do simple things and the rest was fake. Granted, I don't know and can't tell, it's just what I read. I thought the video was an interesting concept, though.

But I remember reading another thread on another website about this and holograms, and there is a way to use a system of air tunnels over a holographic object to create a interactive hologram. Sorta cool. Can't find it, though.

If you're talking about a proper 3d hologram, it'd be rubbish for films. It'd take power away from the director for the sake of a gimmick.

i just cant see how its possible.

everything i have ever learnt about light tells you that
A) it travels in straight lines
B) the only reason we can see is due to it reflecting from things

so then the only way to do it would be to have it reflect off something... eg. smoke

and if that is true then how come nobody has commercialised it yet?

cause it probably costs a rediculous amount of money

so do bugatti veyrons but they still build those... £4m to make, sold for £2m

if its possible people tend to try and create it and sell it nomatter how much it costs

i cant see any reason why people would hold back on clear technological advances due to money, it sombody has dont it there wouldnt be a shortage of people willing to invest in something like this.

My dad worked in a Physics lab and he showed me holograms in, like, 1983.

It's not exactly new technology, it's just that now we've figured out how to pay some Chinese slave $0.10/month to build it for us.

Now it's at Wal-Mart and everyone thinks it's "new."
