3D Holograms are here

3Dsolar Ltd. has introduced, on October 25, a "Holographic-like 360-Degree 3D Imaging Hardware and Screen Technology". They are using a 2D projector to create 3D images, thus making it relatively inexpensive and easy to fit into household PCs:

"The 3Dsolar device projects the Windows or MAC desktop image into the air whereby users click on icons for manipulation. Its high resolution guarantees quality output with ideal contrast, brightness and color behavior, thus enabling accurate and precise visualization without straining the eyes.

3Dsolar devices in small-scale production cost approximately US $5,000. However, the company anticipates large-scale production to reduce costs to approximately US $1,500."
