Holograms You Can Manipulate With Your Hands

The future will involving interacting with objects that aren’t actually there. The 2050 World Series will be played with a holographic non-real “ball” and your grandchildren’s toys will be mere fragments of light. Via PhysOrg:

A research project at Microsoft Research Cambridge has brought forth a prototype called Holodesk, which lets you manipulate virtual objects with your hand.

    In a few years, when we will be unable to distinguish reality from virtual reality and all hell has broken loose as a result, I hope I remember watching this video and saying to myself, “That’s pretty cool.”
