A very cool 3D display would be something like the Cubitron (this videos gives it no justice, it's essentially a huge 3D LED display) but with much higher resolution and maybe 2x3x3 feet. Ideally it looks like a big block of (lightweight) glass when it`s powered off. But it contains an array of super dense, miniature LEDs and microscopic wires to power each LED. I`ll stop now... I don`t see it happening any time soon.

I think that's a good metaphor. The first step would be to reduce the scale of each "pixel" and increase "resolution". I am sure that after they increase the resolution and actuator size this will be commercialized and available as an add-on like the Wii gun or Rockband Kit.

The thing that`s disappointing about this is that you`re still only limited to a top-view 2D projection of a 3D scene. This is because the single Kinect they use is collecting 2D projected data. I don`t see it going beyond 2D projections with respect to being able to manipulate a real-life object such as the ball they demonstrate with. What you might be able to do is use multiple Kinects to generate accurate 3D models of whatever is in the scanning zone. This allows you to interact with computer generated objects on a screen, but certainly not real 3D objects.

Kinda like CGA in a WUXGA world? Predictions on where it`s gonna go??
