What’s next after 3D TV? Get ready for Holographic TV

Wait! Before you rush out to Best Buy to replace your still-kinda-new high-def flat-screen TV with a not-quite-ready-for-primetime 3DTV, take a moment to consider what comes next: holographic TV viewing. Should you hold out and wait?Researchers at Japan’s National Institute of Information and Communications Technology are preparing for a public demonstration of hologram video in Tokyo in October. The researchers estimate that the system will require the processing power of four computers plus three LCDs and and optical lasers, as well as “a thousand times or more resolution than current high-definition systems”. So the consumer-ready version is unlikely to show up at your local electronics store for 15 to 20 years.

Okay, now you can rush out and purchase that 3DTV you’ve been craving, knowing that you have at least 15 years to enjoy wearing goggles before it feels outdated. Enjoy!
