Thread: Holographic display?
10-26-2003, 06:57 PM #1wiggin1605GuestHolographic display?
I just herd from my close friend one of the top developers at apple that they are working on the New iMac and it will have the same base but a holographic display.

LOL... maybe as a idea to toy around.. but very doubtful.
The only way I would know how to make a holographic display that has enuf contrast and non transparent would be have a globe-mirror projection.. but if you moved your head away from the viewing hole.. yud get no picture... (its on the idea of a projection screen). But aside from that no idea how it would be possible.

I highly doubt that, if they did it would make the iMac WAY too expensive, and thats the last thing apple needs, to make their hardware more expensive. I would expect to see 3rd party monitors of the type before apple adopts it for an entire line of machines.

Perhaps they are considering a 3D display rather than a Holographic one. Several are on the market currently although they tend to be a bit pricey.

yes johnho thats whats iwas saying. sorry when i said holographic display im not saying a 2D display that would look like it was 3D. Im saying that there will be no screen there at all just air an that there wil be projected form the base into the air a diplay that will be in 3-Demantions.
P.S. pardon my spelling im in a rush.
