The future of 3D holograms might be nearer than we think, although we will not be playing any form of 3D chess anytime soon ala Star Wars. This particular Kinect hack and a Windows Phone have resulted in a pseudo-holographic effect, where a demonstration of it relies on a simple game engine to get the job done. The Kinect is able to “see” the position of the viewer, while the 3D engine will adjust the image accordingly in order to deliver an illusion of an actual 3D object. The 3D engine will be able to support anaglyph 3D (red/cyan glasses) in order to experience a superior effect in real life. A windows Phone 7 application will control the app as well as the helicopter, as the phone’s built-in accelerometers get to work while you enjoy your five minutes of fun.
