What the iPhone Would Look Like With a Holographic Display and Keyboard

By , Aug 24, 2011

The science fiction community has been predicting the rise of holograms in everyday culture for decades. When will hologram-based technology make its way to the mainstream?

Aatma Studios has envisioned a future in which the iPhone and iPad use holograms to display video and full-size, interactive keyboards. One thing we will say: this concept video blows every other futuristic iPhone video you’ve ever seen out of the water…

The concept is based off a combination of pico projectors and IR sensors, and as you can see, the result is incredibly awesome.

Need a bigger keyboard for typing on your iPhone? Simply activate the hologram display and set your brightness and position angles with multitouch gestures. How about displaying video content? No problem. You’ve got a portable hologram display that would even make Luke Skywalker jealous.

In the end, this is an awesome, awesome concept. But don’t expect this kind of technology in the iPhone 5. The iPhone 6 is a totally different story, however.

      advertisements are out of the authors control. They are randomly picked ads about iPhone by the Ad service they use.

    Loving the keyboard, the display on the other hand not so much, just doesn’t look right to me, the transparency of it would make it hard to enjoy watching stuff on it imo, but if the keyboard became a reality for the ihpone it would be amazing!!

    Aatma Studios did an excellent job with conceptional rendering of what may be possible for the Future?

    I wonder if Apple will SUE them also for giving away secrets or Patent Infringement………… LOL :-D

    Pretty sure there are already holographic keyboards on the market. I remember almost buying one from a local electronics store a while back but was concerned about accuracy and lack of tactile feedback.

    I’ve been saying this for years, holographic displays are nothing new, they just haven’t become mainstream yet. The technology has existed for a long time but until there is no longer demand for regular screens (as we know them) large corporations will not make the shift to holographic displays because there is still too much money to be earned with current displays.

    WoW what the HELL ??!!

    I’m impressed! I definitely see that becoming a Possibility. Battery life would have to improve tremendously though.

    Ultra thin design?! How in the hell would you be able to hold that thing like a normal phone? I can’t even imagine talking on that. The iPhone is thin enough.

    It would be pretty cool but I see it in 15 years, not for the next gen
    It’s just unbelievable that the iPhone could have an holographic screen or display or whatever
    And the keyboard, I see it really far from being possible
    But I’m still crossing my fingers for this ;) thanks and please follow me in twitter :D

    The keyboard is possible now and I wouldn’t put it past apple to design it into the iPhone 6. Unless it was already planned it definetly wont make the next interation. the keyboard is the only thing I enjoyed and got excited about tho. I would love that feature.

    I would buy this and it looks like something apple would and can do.

    With features and size of that, this iphone should have a battery life of about 3 minutes
