That's fun. I'm sure there will be plenty of early adopters that will fund the next gen development. Who doesn't want a video hologram-cam on their coffee table?

That's fine as long as I don't have to say, "Help me AT&T, you're my only hope!"

Yes but it is saying


The system will use a special camera on one end to record the video and a hologram generator on the other end that uses water vapor to produce a three-dimensional image

So where does the water vapor come from ? Does phone or device hold so much water and emit  water vapor? And after X amout of time all the water is gone? How much water will it hold and for how long?

So this looks awesome , but still many questions.That article did not explain about how this hologram works.

Meh. As long as there's an easy toggle switch on the side. Sometimes I don't want to literally project what I do on my phone

Most of science fiction becomes science fact. A lot of technology we used had some iteration in science fiction.
