3D Geek Alert: Are You Ready For The Holodeck?

Jim here - thanks to a reader who didn't leave his name but thought this was cool - and we agree! Are we getting closer to a version of Star Trek's Holodeck or what? Take a look at this video clip highlighting the Airborne Ultrasound Tactile Display (AUTD) - it allows you to 'feel' objects in mid air that are not really there using ultrasonic waves - no gloves or special equipment required!

Now, imagine combining this tactile feature with a hologram or 3D projection and hmmm... Holodeck? Can we hurry up this invention and make it affordable? Seems like these things take forever. C'mon, we are on Internet time baby!

More details can be found here about the AUTD.
