Cheap, color, holographic video

A practical new approach to holographic video could also enable 2-D displays with higher resolution and lower power consumption.

Today in the journal Nature, researchers at MIT’s Media Lab report a new approach to generating holograms that could lead to color holographic-video displays that are much cheaper to manufacture than today’s experimental, monochromatic displays. The same technique could also increase the resolution of conventional 2-D displays.
