Report: Apple developing holographic iPhone screen in Taiwan lab (VIDEO)
posted by Alan F. / Dec 17, 2015, 1:31 PM
The interesting part of this story is that the same micro-LED display that Apple is rumored to be working on, is the catalyst behind the holographic screen. Using specialized software and hardware, the micro-LED technology can allow iPhone users to view holographs that are visible to the naked eye.
This is not science fiction. Using a micro-LED projector, display producer Ostendo demonstrated some of the concepts behind the holographic screen in a video from 2014.
While Apple hasn't confirmed any of this, keep in mind one important part of the whole equation. How much would Apple have to raise the price of the iPhone to incorporate this technology into the device?

this may sound negative, it isn't meant like that, just factual. To prevent anyone from developing anything remotely close to holographic interfaces without having to battle Apple in court.

before people go crazy over this it will never work like what your thinking the light particles need a medium to refract on or another light wave behind it running at the same time the same image thats just for 2d not 3d render, and quantum photons run on a basic principle of that

IPhone seems to be Apple's saving grace. They are just like any other company with iPhone. Building future round iPhones shows that Apple has no future plan. Apple died with job

Apple is practically nothing without the iPhone. Mac isdead, iPad sales (and the tablet market in general) is downing... Heck, imagine if iOS became open source, hence chinese OEMs offering high-end iOS devicss for 1/3 of the latest iPhone's prices... that would be the beggining of the end of the iFruity company.

Are you kidding? Samsung is a way bigger and diverse company - not just a Mobile division. Sammy is much more: display, semiconductor, heavy industries. Samsung makes gass cookers, fridge/freezers, air conditioners, TVs, etc... Heck, ships and boats too! What diversity does Apple have, compared versus Samsung, or even LG? You're simply iBiased.

For samsung electronics yes. But for samsung group, mobile division plays a small role. Also, samsung has one of the highest revenue of all time. The only reason apple has higher profit is due to low manufacturing cost using old parts for their phone with higher selling price. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wik
Also, it's still has higher revenue for year 2015. http://www.statista.com/statis g_companies_by_revenue tics/263265/top-companies-in-the-world-by-revenue/

That sounds great and all, but I believe that Samsungs mobile division is one of if not the biggest money maker. Apple honestly is a different type of company. They may not have a super diverse product line, but the ones that they have are usually money makers. It's the reason why they are the richest tech company in the world.

not even close the fact that they build the biggest ships in the world in the billion range and the company brings in 1/3 of the countries total income mobile is no t the top maybe in the top 5 of the things in the list but not enough for what you apple fans wish for

Huh... Looks like Apple is getting further and deeper into the gimmick aisle of the innovation world.

Sam, as an apple fan, I actually have to side with you on that... I miss the minimalistic ideas under S.J. - it was buy a pure-bones iOS device and add all you want with apps, and such... It's those damn Samsung complainers: we need widgets, we need eyetracking, we need gimmicks, we need gimmicks... To date I still dont have one widget installed (or tried one).... useless... All apps and servises and features have been allowed to push info to lockscreen or on any screen all customizable for years and years on iOS...

the drop down notification is a widget and you have that the time at the top of the phone is basically a widget you can try to sell it as mush as u want samsungs gimmicks gave you everything they took the forcetouch idea from the old samsung air play when you hover over item gives you a look inside then tap to open it also forcetouch or 3d touch is a widget a widget is a shortcut with info to something else

Someone else is developing these things and Apple just slaps their name on it and takes advantage of the corrupt patent office to claim it as theirs.
