I just randomly had this thought and figured I would share it. With the reveal of the HoloLens, i think it's within reason to believe that holograms will be part of our every day lives within a decade. I think it's also within reason that you will be able to create a hologram out of any 3D object, person, or animal. Just the same way we take a photo today. Only difference is that the holograms could be life sized, 3 dimensional, and all around more life like than a simple photo. What if you could also make a recording of someone doing or saying something and turn that into a hologram? Again, these ideas are completely within the realm of reason and will probably be reality soon. This bring us to the question, what do you do with holograms of deceased loved ones? As if it's not hard enough seeing photos of them, what if you had a holographic recording of your mom standing in front of you telling you she loves you? Is this something you would appreciate having after she's gone, or would it be too difficult for you to see a hologram of your mom after she's gone? I know, depressing topic, but I thought it was interesting. Also, what other potential problems can you envision holograms causing some people? I can see a potential for some people to create virtual worlds for themselves with holograms, get addicted, and leave reality behind. Many have already done this with virtual life computer games, but holograms can make it much worse. Discuss!
