Mechanical Menagerie #5: Tools of the Trade

The HoloLamp is a next gen technology that allows you to visualize images in 3-D right in front of you. The main uses they have prepared are gaming, virtual assistants and sports broadcasting. The uses for holograms are boundless. Get ready for opinion time. They will eventually replace our glass screens across phones, computers and television screens. What I am mainly hopeful for is the ability to move different screens around. You could put a show in the background while looking at something or working on something as well as displaying news feeds, weather forecasts, social media feeds or anything else you like. You could control the size of the screens but see them all at the same time. Just a dream, but  I am happy to show the beginning stages of it.
