We've had holograms for ages. I remember getting them free with Shreddies at one point. They were as thin as a piece of card.

What I don't understand is how you get this relationship between a thin hologram and a hologram screen. The holograms that I know of are 3D but they're permanent, you can't change the image. How does a thin version of this suddenly turn into a 3D screen on a phone or computer?

Watch Star Trek. It doesn't mean Klingonians exist.

He asked questions that the video answers. I never said the stuff already existed but this new hologram tech is the first step to realizing some of the things the video shows. You've see the iron man movies right? How cool would it be to have a phone like Tony Stark's!

Watch the video. It's 100% CGI and bears nothing to reality.

HAHAHA! Imagine using your smartphone with this tech under the bright sunlight. It's useless. XD

It seems most people here are against the evolution of technology. I can already visualize some unhappy soul commenting something like "totally gimmick, we should stick with 4" flat LCD screens forever since they do everything I need".
