    I have watched some time ago on youtube about new holografic concept on IPhone. Can someone explain, is this reality, i.e. does this really work at least in laboratories, or just an animated 'concept' of some future feature.

    augmented display or reality exist today has since 3gs search for it on YouTube or the app store. Not true holographic but I think that's what you mean.

    That video on YouTube is totally fake. Well done, but fake. You won't see any features like that for a few years at least.

    Features like that are just (incorrect) views of the future. It's like how people saw the future in 1985 (Back to the Future, or even the novel, 1984). We have almost nothing like what they have/had, because virtually everything we have is better (ok hover board and flying cars would still be sweet). My point is that I see no reason to be going towards the holographic keyboard. I would expect more data entry to become voice activated, personally.

    A lot of projects like this get made for classes, and some people have a lot of fun doing them. I wouldn't call the video in question (if we are looking at the same one) a grab for attention.

    The video you're referring to may have been fake but projected keyboards do exist.
