Holographic TV for consumers edge closer to reality

Just when you were wondering what is the next big thing when it comes to TVs since the stereoscopic 3D revolution is well and truly underway, along comes an interesting proposition – how about holographic TVs in your living room? That is what the bright minds over at MIT are working on, where they intend to make holographic technology a reality for consumers. This is made possible by primarily using off-the-shelf components, allowing the team to capture, transmit and display a holographic subject on-the-fly. One benefit of this? You won’t need any form of glasses as with a 3D TV, so you can always keep your spectacles on without having to replace them with contact lenses for a more comfortable viewing experience. It will still take some time before something like this can be commercialized, but do keep it at the back of your mind in case you were wondering what the next big thing at CES 2015 is all about.
