Comicbook World #37- Can you say 'Tactile Holograms'?

those brainy jokers in the land of the Rising Sun are at it again! Holograms you can touch, the technology that makes sci-fi movies and comics so cool, is about to go from virtual to reality.
"Up until now, holography has been for the eyes only, and if you'd try to touch it, your hand would go right through," says Tokyo University professor Hiroyuki Shinoda. "But now we have a technology that also adds the sensation of touch to holograms."
the new holograms they are developing will use ultrasonic vibrations to provide a sense of touch when a user interacts with a hologram. still in the rudimentary phases, researchers foresee practical applications like virtual switches in hospitals and other places where contamination is an issue. I can imagine that we might see holographic control panels on cell phones, computers and even cars that can be customized by the user... comics/movie nerds have already gotten used to seeing portable floating keyboards, and holographic concubines... what other applications can we look forward to with this?

This would make the "holodeck" from Star Trek possible. I want one.

i really like the idea of holographic control panels for cars and computers... maybe with biometric locks replacing keys.

the holodeck is the ultimate exppression of the technology... and yes, i think the porn industry will invent customizable holographic concubines as soon as scientifically possible!
