Holocube Touch is another step for a holographic world

by Mark R

It has been a while since we covered the Holocube, a box that contains at least 40GB worth of holographic video footage.

The Holocube has received an upgrade with the Holocube Touch. All the original designer did was add a touchscreen, which is pretty much on every device these days.

There is a video of it after the jump if you want to see how it works. You will note how the touched icons leap out and spin and interact in 3-D. This video footage is only 22 seconds long, which is a real shame, because I really want to see the limits of holograms being pushed.

Still, it is on more step in the holographic culture that we all saw in Star Wars and is now a convention of many a science-fiction movie. Another step is being taken to get this tech going as the designers are creating a 42-inch version of this guy.

I can’t help but think that this Holocube Touch is going to be the next big thing, as anytime someone puts “Touch” after something usually means it takes the place of the original product. After all, look at the iPod Touch, it is totally making the iPod classic go out of style.

I have to agree with techqc. Plus, the video is not at all impressive, you can’t capture the holographic quality viewing on-stream- looks as flat as my ass.
