    Link: Interactive Real-Sized Hologram Machine - I`m not sure what practical applications this device will have, but you know the porn industry is already working on it.

    not very impressive. they`re using a screen, big woop. when they can do this out of thin air i`ll be impressed (they can do it out of air but they compress the air first) i must admit though, the controls were pretty cool.

    It`s just a screen with a projector, not a hologram.

    Good call Broken. This isn`t really a hologram, it`s just a projection onto a glass screen. This is similar to a Pepper`s Ghost Illusion. Like what they use for effects in Disney`s Haunted Mansion ride. The fact that it`s responding to the guy waving his hand, only means the projector is motion sensitive.

    What else do they do other than make the same picture of some girl appear?
    I`m sure i took a lot of time and I wouldn`t be able to make it

    Why does everything have to be photoshopped!!!!!

    They should just make human computers like in chobits so people wont be so lonely. Theyd make better companions than holograms.

    I think people are starting to send things to IAB that they dont actually think is cool, and which will "kill the boredom bug," so to speak, hoping that people will recognize them as the "OVERLORD OF IAB!"

    You know, I was hoping that the interactive hologram would`ve been more... interactive. All I saw was the image forming and dispersing. Nothing actually affected the state of the picture. And it wasn`t even an actual hologram.

    And if you think about it, even if they do make it truly interactive, when you think about all the possible reactions that the hologram would need in order to fully interact, you might as well put all that work into something tangible. I agree with PandaCookies` Chobits approach.

    Although, if that follows through, then the Porn industry would crash.

    ...And the Love Doll industry would rise like hell.

    wow, they`re making a 2D girl appear and dissapear... And I wouldn`t really call it a hologram. It`s just a really good projection

    Whenever I saw holograms in star trek, movies etc. I always though... that would be awesome for porn. This was very unimpressive. But that`s just me. *sigh* I guess they did a good job. Keep up the good work, hologram - light - engineers.

    this isnt a hologram. a hologram is something projected onto space... hence the name HOLOgram
