3D Holograms and the Potential for Holographic Display

Most technologies to visualize and manipulate three-dimensional models create an environment that’s just two and a half dimensions. Holographic imaging technology promises to provide a display that projects an image that can be manipulated in the full three dimensions. One company that’s working diligently to develop this technology is Zebra Imaging. V1 Editor Matt Ball
