"Ever since I saw a 1-foot-high holographic Carrie Fisher (http://www.amra.pl/star/1.jpg) plead, "Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi," I've been waiting for a 3-D video player to call my own. I'm not talking about fake, View-Master-style 3-D that lets you look at an image from only one angle—you can already get that on a $3,000 laptop (http://www.sharpertechnology.com/StereoscopicHomePage.html). That "360-degree hologram phone (http://www.engadget.com/entry/1234000837021481)" you read about last week? It's not even a real hologram, just a stereoscope that's 3-D from left to right, not up and down. Impressive? Sure. A video hologram that lets you check out your subject from front to back and top to bottom? Not even close. And why would anyone want to call me on my hologram phone if they can't stand on their tiptoes and check out my bald spot?"

Thanks for the link, Roberto.

Yeah, can't wait to see some advancements in 3d displays.

I just ordered the Liti3d Hologram kit (http://www.litiholo.com/), should be fun to mess around with..
