    A computer with a hologram monitor. That would be pretty neat. Anyone care to speculate how far off this technology is? 10, 15, 20 years?

    I think most research is holography is related to data storage. I know NTT has a working prototype for a drive that holds disks the size of stamps that hold 10 gigs with fast access and no moving parts based on thin-film-holography...

    I still want the secretary/assistant/producer in a box with true interactive voice recognition.

    Might be cool to create your own 3D holographic studio assistant.

    Wouldn't that be just a perfect circle if now due to nano architecture all of this power was reduced to a beam of light inside a vacuum tube.
