It also means longer battery life - again key for field service, salespeople and other out-of-office workers." via ZDNet

Forget glasses: MIT’s new 3D technology works with just your naked eyes “Holography works, it’s beautiful, nothing can touch its quality,” says Douglas Lanman, a postdoc at the Media Lab. “The problem, of course, is that holograms don’t move. To make them move, you need to create a hologram in real-time, and to do that, you need … little tiny pixels, smaller than anything we can build at large volume at low-cost. So the question is, what do we have now? We have LCDs. They’re incredibly mature, and they’re cheap.” via Demas Capital Partners Blog
