Let us not forget that commercial, user experience for 3D holographic production was established for The Haunted House at Disneyland in August of 1969. So the fundamental base technology has been around for 50+ years and has still yet to be adopted and in place, by major cinema vendors.
It is also important to note that the Disneyland 3D holographic projections did not require 3D glasses either.
Will these “Laser projectors” still require glasses?
Moore’s law increased from 10,000 operations/transistors to 20,000,000 in that time. An increase of 2,000x in that time period.
Processor speed has increased from 0.043 MHZ to 4.0 GHZ. Nearly a 100,000x increase in processing speed (and that does even count for multi core processors).
So we are saying it requires a 100,000x increase in processor speed and and a 2,000x increase in number of transistors to do holographic 3D projecting, in the best case scenario, if the above technologies no longer requiring special glasses.
Seriously. All that power increase and speed increase and 50+ years to work on it, and high res color is essentially the hurdle. I won’t even get started with memory speed or flash drives.
It seems they (3D, color, no glasses) have been missing a market opportunity for some time.
Why is that? The issue is certainly not computational, or chip speed to process required bits. or even memory size/speed since you only need to send the bit changes.
