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.
