Will Phones Project 3d Holographic Images In Just 5 Years?

The answer may be, well, duh…IBM conducted a survey of 3,000 researchers to name five ideas that may become reality by 2015.  3D holographic images emanating from cell phones topped the list.

Amazingly, the technology is already far more advanced than the comparatively old-fashioned looking hologram from the famous “Star Wars” scene pictured above.  In fact, the University of Arizona is working feverishly on holographic technology which, described as “herky jerky,” already looks better than Princess Leia did.

Below is an image that was featured in an AolNews article last month.  This is a holographic image generated by the technology under development at University of Arizona.

Other notable predictions for tech breakthroughs included batteries that would, essentially, run on air and more cities around the world would be powered from the heat generated by serversHelsinki, Finland is already ahead of the curve on that idea, making news in recent months for its underground servers helping to heat a city that can be bitterly cold in wintertime.

Servers heating homes or even entire communities is one thing, but 3D holographic images?  It would not surprise me for an instant.  At the rate technology is advancing, in5 years, holographic images from our cell phones might seem even a bit ho-hum.
