Future Technology ResearchIphone 5 Concept Incorporates a Hologram ProjectorHere’s a new iPhone 5 concept, this time not too detailed and relying very much on the video atthe end of the article. Created by Waterworks/ Christopher East, this iPhone design relies onfuturistic hologram projections.Such mechanisms will be used to turn the iPhone 5 into the perfect presentation tool, especially forarchitects, car, boat designers and more. Combine that holographic ability with the power of OfficePowerPoint and you’ve got productivity nirvana… or do you?Technology by HitachiHere you are the last bit of our tour at Hitachi exhibition, with the company vision of a “MinorityReport” like interface. Perhaps closer to Microsoft Kinect UI, Hitachi system will let you control anykind of information display on a TV or by a Video projector, by simply waving your hands in anydirections.Nothing much to say here since this was just a working prototype, but, Hitachi is working not onlyon including this technology in digital signage, but also in the medical area, where doctors canaccess data, photo or like on the video below to IRM without touching anything, ideal duringsurgery for example, as well as planning to add such technology in both Desktop PCs as well asTV.
Now, Hitachi is working in adding this technology in their TVs since the past two years, and thelaunch of Kinect by Microsoft was some kind of wake-up call for Hitachi. If unfortunately Hitachiwas not capable to give any possible date and time on the availability of a TV running thistechnology, an Engineer however told us that if Hitachi decided to put on the market a TV usingthis tech, we would have to wait until middle of 2011.Cultivator Food for the Future MankindGrowing vegetables in the backyard or in front of the house is always a common and enthusiastichobby among a range of people.
