When I first played Star Fox 64 I was extremely excited to see the polygons move smoothly over the screen. It made me feel as if I were really flying over the combat zone. With the 3D technology (Google Earth, games, etc.) of today things look even more beautiful. Unfortunately we still have to experience this on our 2D screens… I can’t stop imagining what it would look like with future technology. And here is what I hope to see.
3D desktop concept
This 3D hologram concept from the University of Tokyo just makes me want to have a holographic desktop. It made me come up with my desktop concept: Bring the black curtain down so that the hologram can be seen more clearly in front of you. There are tiny projectors installed, giving off 3D hologram in front of the curtain.
A browser window can be resized by actually “pinching” and dragging the tab at bottom right.
It would be fun if a document could be made as if you were using a typewriter. The curled paper hologram comes out of the keyboard.
Touching the 3D objects would be really fun. Dragging, throwing, resizing, etc., but crushing paper to dispose it would be the most interesting.
You have to adjust the “depth” of the cursor on screen, so how about a mouse like this? By pressing the mouse body downwards, the cursor sinks (goes deeper) on screen. When you release it, it goes back to the default position (front).
3D mobile phone
In the future, the display that has been conventionally used for a screen will no longer be needed. And if there is a flexible material that can be used to a mobile phone, we can have a mobile phone with a large hole in the middle like this.
The 3D hologram appears in the hole (2D also). So we can finally have video conference calls Star Wars style.
I just can’t wait to see it!!!
