Touchable holograms exist

While this isn’t new news, I thought I’d write a blog post about the touchable holograms from Shinoda Lab in Tokyo. As computers get faster, the reality of hologramchat draws closer daily. Here is the video of the touchable hologram from Japan.

The University of Tokyo came up with this by using ultrasound to make the holograms “touchable”. The haptic feedback was similar technology to that of the Wii by nintendo. Can you think of any cool uses for this technology? How about a holographic masseuse or massage chair? The blind could get a better sense of things feeling the pictures that we see. I don’t think there is any limit to the amount of cool things that we could come up with, imagination being the only limit!
