TI micromirror device can be used for holographic data storage application. At the moment, for some reason, directional movement on next generation disc memory to be coming after Blu-ray is inapparent.

This is good marketing by TI. When the market moved away from the micro-mirror for TV applications, they found a new market in 3D printing.

It's a cool idea but for holography you'd need to modulate phase of the ligt wavefront, i.e. required spatial resolution is a fraction of the visible light wavelength. This is two orders of magnitude tighter than what micromirrors provide.

@aktion99 I don't think the digital micromirror device, or digital light processor, has a special relevance to holographic display. Although there might be ways to use such a display to create right/left eye images in rapid succession.

Why TI not try using its digital micromorror technology to pursui the development of holographic display technology. They can make joint R&D with some university. If succeed they will be first companies to market it. How bright is their potential? Thanks.

Why Connect a Car?
May 11, 1pm EDT Monday
Overview: Battle-hardened veterans of the electronics industry have heard of the “connected car” so often that they assume it’s a done deal. But do we really know what it takes to get a car connected and what its future entails? Join EE Times editor Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of movers and shakers in the connected car business. Executives from Cisco, Siemens and NXP will share ideas, plans and hopes for connected cars and their future. After the first 30 minutes of the radio show, our listeners will have the opportunity to ask questions via live online chat.
