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...
