Wow. I mean Uber-Wow. We've seen our cronies over at Engadget
report on a range of ridiculously cool holographic
technologies lately, but nothing this big, impressive or, most importantly, actually available. What's being dubbed the "Uber-Graph
", this 80" pane of glass acts as a medium for a holographic projection television, and is completely customizable to the buyer's specifications. The Uber-secret technology traps little bits of light at certain angles whilst all other light just passes through it. And voila, your image is floating in mid-air.
We don't know how much the 80-incher will go for (check out the eBay page here
), but it looks like the 40-incher is retailing for £14,995 (about $28,500 US). And, if current market pricing trends are any measure, doubling the screen size can easily mean quadrupling the price. Which sucks, of course, for those of us who were otherwise really looking forward to a new condo this year.
Good find, BornRich.
