Hologram Phones? It’s Trou.

by Mark R

trou2Sure, we loved the iPhone with its complete touchscreen interface, so you can imagine the excitement when a holographic interface finally comes out. Yes, I am fully aware that a holographic interface sounds too good to be true, and the Trou Hologram phone isn’t, at least, not yet.

I’m sure we all love the basic concept photo behind this, with the 3-D hologram of the car sitting on the screen. Just imagine how cool it will be when you turn your mobile around and can see the car at nearly every angle.

Still, holographic projectors have been known to eat up lots of power, so that is definitely one obstacle for the small projectors on the surface of the display. I’m sure there are many other things that prevent our science-fiction visions of a holographic future from becoming reality.

So until Princess Leia can send “Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi” as a text message, keep your fingers crossed on this one.

Now it is the time on Coolest Gadgets where you comment. How long will it take before holograms on our cellular phones become reality? Are we looking at 10 years? How about 20 years? Chime in and let me know what you think.

Considering the economy and the current direction of capital towards certain technologies, I would say more like 20 years. Holographic phones and such are not high up on the priority list right now I would imagine, so it will most likely have to wait until the world market makes a recovery; at least to be marketed on an affordable mass scale it will.

It’s hard to say.. I mean look at all of the progress we have made in the last 20 yrs with computers and internet. I think the holographic technology isn’t far away from becoming reality – I’d say 10 years, but to mass produce it into a product everyone can use at an affordable price could take as long as 20 years.
