Holocube brings projections to real life

Remember the holographic message that R2-D2 stored in his memory, only to show his hand when he bumps into pretty Princess Leia? Well, that day might not be so far away in the future as the Holocube presentation machine is capable of filling up a six-foot tall booth with a 70″ display with full sized human projections. Individual Holocubes will be able to hold up to 40GB of data thanks to a SSD, where that ought to be enough for holding around 18 hours of uncompressed video at a bit rate of 4 Mb/s or 8 hours of compressed video at 9 Mb/s. A solitary switch will allow you to operate this device since all operations are pre-programmed, where content can be changed and uploaded via USB. Other hardware specifications include a 600 cd/m2 brightness level and a resolution of 1080 x 1920, with an Intel Dual Core 2.8GHz processor running proceedings from within. Windows 7 Embedded is the operating system of choice, although it shouldn’t really matter since you will not access the computer anyways. Most of the box is made out of aluminum with a choice between white or black shades, while the projection screen is made out of a giant sheet of glass.
