Holographic LCD is supercool and interesting but nice aspect to create 3D images. Compared to Toshiba's glassless 3D i bet samsung is going to make money if they'll reveal this product to market. To bad to have weak&limitted video besides thanks @mark for sneak reviews.
The korean electronic show is not at all a match for what people have displayed at the Japan electronic show. It is only some displays - LED, LCD and 3D. Toshibha vs LG/Samsung will defintely give more points to the Japan electronic industry. Japan is running ahead of all the remaiining parts of the world.
Thank you for showing the glimpses ( on youtube) of the next generation products especially in the 3D TV world from the Korea Electronic Show. I like the concept of the Holographic 3D TV . Creation of 3D live motion images in the air is something which is more closer to the reality than the 3D LED TVs. It is like watching an event live and may be participate in the same, mingle with the characters and interact with them.
Touch feedback is neat and could be quite useful I would imagine. Gamers could feel their weapon kick back and grasp doorknobs, push / lift objects. It could open up a whole new set of game genres. Instead of a glowing light (indicating warning) the haptic driver could push back on the user control to indicate warning danger ahead.. I read about haptic drivers being tested in cars to provide non-visual feedback to drivers (aka collision avoidance). There must be many more potential applications for this emerging technology.
Compared to Japan Technology shows, Korea seems to focus very much on 3D only. The quality of the holographic LCD looks very impressive. The haptic driver has a very interesting product idea. I can see application on gaming. What else can it apply to?
