Yeah, I've seen all this before now. My point is you are confusing 3D imagery with holography and they are NOT the same thing at all. Your first interactive display isn't even 3D, but just a 2D image reflected off of mylar to give the effect that there is something there. The company that is touting these "revolutionary" ideas don't seem to be going anywhere. It remains to be seen if some form of 3D imaging will be useful in medicine. We already have had these in the way of MRIs and PET scans as well a CT scans. I don't see this imagery taking hold in the medical community no matter how "cool" it looks to people who have not seen this before now. These are all just tricks to get you to think you are seeing something in 3D when holography is actually reconstructing the object wave that makes it truly a recreated image. I guess you can't know what I'm talking about unless you've been around real holograms like I have for many years. The ionization of air molecules isn't really all that new and it is not that amazing when you see it in person either.
