Belgium based Holocube offers an interesting looking holographic display.
The Holocube projects an animated 3D image inside of it's housing. You can view the 3D scenery only from the front of the box.The 20 inch sized Holocube has an integrated HDD that stores the video for the projection at a resolution of 1080i.
The company positions the Holocube as a product display for businesses.
More details on Engadget and on the Holocube site.
Another large scale holographic display system we reported about in 2006 is the Vizoo Cheoptics360 XL. This holographic display can be viewed from all sides and is life size.
In 2004 we reported about Provision that offers POS systems with floating holographic displays.
IO2 Technology showed their Heliodisplay in 2003. The company is still offering holographic display solutions.
If you have the money, there are holographic display solutions available today. There are limitations to each system. The StarTrekHolodeck has not been invented yet.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
