Holographic Displays Offer a Glimpse of How We Will See the World

Researchers are one step closer to a new era of immersive displays as they use holography to blend the real and virtual worlds that can be viewed through ordinary eyeglasses. This advance, spearheaded by Princeton University researchers and reported on the university website, promises to revolutionise how we experience visual media.

What’s in a Name?

The use of the term ‘holography’ to describe phenomena other than wavefront reconstruction is now well established in the media. Often, the purpose of using the term is to convey a sense of futuristic heightened reality, which can be frustrating to holography purists but could also be seen as praise if you believe the idiom ‘imitation is the sincerest form of flattery’.
