Holographic Videoconferencing Getting Closer

I was drifting through the Internet today looking for something interesting.

I found it!

Many years ago I was working for a true visionary at Lawrence Livermore National Labs.  He told the young me one day that there will someday be a way to hold holographic videoconferences right there in the conference room.  I guess I believed him because I have built my career, and now, retirement on evangelizing videoconferencing (among other things like telecommuting and coworking).

This article describes how researchers at the University of Arizona have developed a display technology that could actually make Princess Leia ask Obi-Won for help!

Very cool….Star Wars evolved to the Jedi meeting via holographic videoconferencing, our turn is coming soon.  I would love to see it…
