    Can't wait for when there's a video of an old person berating the hologram for not helping them, provided that it's actually a decent enough representation of a human, that is.

    And only a matter of time before:

    'Please state the nature of the sexy emergency. Do you want me to strip for you?'

    Every lonely nerd's bedroom should have one. It's probably the real reason this thing was invented. HoloPorn.

    Now if we could just get rid of the TSA, flying might be awesome again.

    So it's basically just a human-shaped cutout that gets prerecorded video projected onto it. It's not 3D nor it is a hologram, really.

    Very much not impressed. Nothing to see here.

    Yeah, at least have it in a bubble or something that gives it an actual 3D look or something. This is just a motion detected projection.

    "Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope..."

    That video doesn't do anything to shake the holoporn thoughts from my head though. 'I can be anything you want, dress anyway you want. Even provide instructions and give directions...'

    *fnarr*
    I can see kids probably snapping her head off. Or poking eyes holes into her.
