Those people actually coming to your living room and do a "theater in the round" right before your eyes. In fact, I expect you could walk around the performance and see it from every angle. Maybe we would get more exercise!



Reminds me of the holodecks in Star Trek. Better than
being a couch potato for sure.

Good one, Perry L. I've made comment to my wife several times that holographic movies are going to be the next step in movie or television viewing. It's only a matter of a (short) period of time. Sort of like the scene in Star Wars when R2D2 plays Princess Leia's warning to Luke Skywalker. It's been a while but I believe I got that right. At the rate technology is progressing exponentially, I should see this happen in my lifetime.
Be who you are and say what you feel in your heart. Because those that matter, don't mind. And those that mind, don't matter.

The other side of that story is that holograms may be our current equivalent of personal helicopters. I can remember in high school 50 years ago predicting that we would all have personal helicopters in 10 or 20 years. Hasn't happened. I remember going to Epcot 20 years ago, having look forward to it. I was mostly disappointed because the most advanced technology I saw was a hologram on a ride through some mountain. On my coffee table at home there was a computer Magazine with a similar picture on the cover. So we have had the technology for over 20 years, but it doesn't seem to have broken out yet.
