I'd like to talk about 3D holograms as the way of visualization of computer graphics. Zebra Imaging company has invented technology of printing in actual 3D effect. I didn't see this on my own eyes, but youtube clips are very impressive:
Please do yourself a favor and watch the video, I believe that you haven't seen something like that before. If the impression in real life was as good as in this clip, then mind of mine would be blown hard. I can imagine how much of use this could have: in architecture, design, I believe that it's possible to use such technology even in medicine.
I'd like to quote key features from the company's website
True 3D: No special eyewear is needed for enjoying a 360-degree viewing range.
Field proven: Over 8,000 images have been utilized by the US military overseas for visualization and defense planning applications.
Multiple copies: Unlike physical models, you can easily produce multiple “leave behinds” for clients, investors and other stakeholders.
Easy viewing: Illuminate the hologram with a simple halogen or LED light source, no special viewing equipment is required.
Portable and durable: Our holographic prints are easy to ship; the prints come with protective coatings for durability, and they can be marked on and rolled up and taken in the field.
Reliable archives: Our three-dimensional images are “version proof” and store flat, so you can refer to them years later — without the need for a computer or specific software.
Full-color or monochrome formats: Complex information can be displayed with brilliant detail, transparency and color — and feature greater accuracy than physical models.
I can't wait for animated 3D holograms technology in movies and games ;)
