Holographic Televisions Only 5 To 10 Years Away

Holographic Televisions Only Be 5 To 10 Years Away 

Holographic television sets may be only a few years off thanks to a new breakthrough in 3D technology. Researchers at the University of Arizona said they had made the first updatable 3D displays with memory, a prerequisite for getting any holographic image to move. With the new technology, displays can now be erased and rewritten in a matter of minutes.
