The uses for this kind of technology are wide open and who knows if this kind of “hologram” technology could be seen as common and accepted throughout our communities.  Right now we are using this technology to prototype an up and coming product that would utilize kiosks as the medium for delivery.  The user would choose the object to view by “showing” the web cam a design pattern resulting in a 3D object in someone’s hands.  Much like the cube in the image above, but you can literally put anything on that pattern with the right tools.
