iPad Hologram Setting – We Want It Now

iPad Hologram

Do you find iPad or iPhone’s screen too small while consuming certain types of digital content? No problem, what if it is possible to create a larger hologram of the iPad screen and you’re able to use multi-touch  hand gestures to interact with it instead?

It sounds futuristic but Amit Agarwal of Digital Inspiration has stumbled on a video created by Zack King, a film student from LA that gives a glimpse of just what to expect in the future.

The video reminds Agarwal of SixthSense, a wearable projector that was demoed by MIT researcher Pranav Mistry at a TED conference in 2009.

Agarwal writes:

For instance, you can hold a book in your hands, the device will pick reviews of that book from the Internet and will project them on to the book cover itself.

Now imagine for a moment if we could integrate some parts of the Sixth Sense technology – like the hologram floating in mid-air or those multi-touch gestures – into the next iPad or mobile phone?

The video by King shows an iPad 2 projecting apps like Photos and Facebook in the form of a hologram with the ability to interact with multi-touch hand gestures, which can be enabled via the Hologram settings in the Settings app (just a concept).

You can checkout the impressive video below:

You can also checkout Mistry’s demo of SixthSense technology at the TED conference below (it’s pretty cool):

    ….FOR 600 USD

  • Boing

    You know what would be cool? If this idiot could jailbreak the iPad 2. Now that would impress me!!!!

  • NorGod

    we actually can have more technology better than that.. the only thing its that the goverment doesnt want us to have that technology. they used for their purpose. even we can actually have spaceships but the gorverment doesnt want to let us know…. come on people.. wake up. technology has been here for million of years. we are just dicovering the basic ones. but this guy its getting to the right idea of what the world should be and outside of earth…..

    • Globe

      Can I buy some pot from you?

      • Fingers21

        I’m not a toker, but on this occasion, I’m with you! I want some of what he’s on, hell, I’d smoke turd if it made me think like this guy! Wait… I do remember reading somewhere, a caveman was discovered with iPhone 5, years ago! The government has finally decided we can have it too!

    • jussayin

      hey dude you on holiday from watching all those space ships at area 51………. just relax now we your friends……”keep quiet R2 C3P0 is sleeping”….

    An awesome idea but very very difficult to implement.

  • wolverinemarky

    i would snag an iPad tomorrow if it could do that lol

  • Common sense

    This will never be done, because it cannot be done. A hologram is light, so light needs to be projected in a surface, it cant be projected into thin air. Take a flashlight and point it at the distance, no matter how far you follow it, you till never see the end of the light trail.

    Just look at that sixthsense technology, it needs a surface to be reflected on. That will come eventually, but displaying a hologram into thin air, like this ipad video, that is scientifically impossible.

    • a;lksdjf

      Actually It is possible, And The technology is already in use. Use google. http://www.optigone.com/

      this thing has been around for years. Now it would be alot harder for a machine to replicate this but it can be done. Much like a sound wave b/c light is a wave. You want to sample the light digitize the light. The convert it back to analog light. It does not need a surface the air can be used as the medium.

  • Kwopau

    This would be cool.

  • Los1ner

    Nothing is impossible! Only if you believe it is.

  • NorGod

    i agree with you Los1ner

  • damkay

    WOAH that indian guy is great, i mean he even will let this thechnology to be open sorce !! that’s amazing in that way he doesn’t restricts the progress of his invention.

  • putra97

    is it possible to have this feature in iphone 4?..but nothing is imposibble ..right?…waiting for Dev Team good news….

  • hacker

    this is very possible so far there is an android smartphone that’s already been made with a built in projector on it and this technology is alot like the xbox kinect only its not portable with no projector but u could plug the kinect into a projector the kinect does voice recognition and it does eliminate mouse and keyboard giving you the ability to control netflix with your hands and control some things on windows 7 with your hands cuz windows was ported already and now that Microsoft bought Skype now Skype will be release for the kinect making it voice recognition so you could simply say the name of the person you want to call and scrolling threw your contacts with your hands and also controlling your email with you hands so you could buy the kinect now making you feel like your in the future hopefully it will be portable 1 day and now that the kinect is out everybody will copy it and try to improve it making it smaller better portable for everything lights,cars,banks everything just like the toilets and faucets with sensors so u dont have to forget to flush anymore and this out already too lol and i also seen projection games that are on the floor already at the mall where you kick actual soccer balls on the floor with your feet so yes technology is advancing way too fast cuz now these days little kids are on the computer and on smartphones wanting to hack at age 8 because now it has become more interesting will all the new gadgets and tablets technology isnt boring anymore

    really cool
