We have seen some cool stuff in the past that could bring us closer to the Star Trek HoloDeck, e.g. the HoloDesk
And now Microsoft Research has pushed a little further and gives us a 3D hologram that is floating in mid air at 15 frames per second and is viewable from 192 different points at a time.
reminds me of Star Wars
Of course Kinect is involved here and the depth sensor makes it possible to interact with the hologram – you can basically touch it.
It is still a long way off from 3D hologram telephony or a full size HoloDeck, but for now this is pretty cool.
