Are Touchable Holograms Coming?

Waifu Overlords Incoming, Maybe

Today’s post isn’t about some big new leap or breakthrough that came all of a sudden – simply to discuss a possibility.  Basic versions of the technology we’re talking about have been out since 2009.  They operate on the principle of using ultrasonic waves to create pressure on the hand of anyone who touches the hologram.

This isn’t just theory.  As they say in the video, “Now we have technology that adds the sensation of touch to holograms.”  That being said, it’s only VERY BASIC versions of this technology that they have operational right now.  But, as technology improves, it seems almost inevitable that someday people – maybe even our kids – will be using this kind of technology for…recreational purposes.

So, what do you all think of this idea?  There are actually all sorts of possible applications for this, even in its primitive state. Does this kind of technology excite you?  Let us know in the comments below!
