Microsoft made a big fuss about holograms with their upcoming HoloLens, and while HoloLens is cool, we have to take some points off for needing a headset to see those holograms. We all watched The Jetsons, we know we’re not supposed to need a headset. Show More Summary
Researchers from Max Planck in Stuttgart have created an acoustic hologram capable of moving objects using nothing but sound.
If you wave your hand under the water’s surface, you get a pattern of ripples on the surface shortly thereafter. Now imagine working that backwards: you want to produce particular ripples on the surface, so how do you wiggle around the water molecules underneath? That’s the project that a crew from the University of Navarre in Spain undertook. Show More Summary
In a self-described “master plan” released earlier this year, probable hologram Elon Musk declared the future is solar , but this weekend, teen mystic Jaden Smith suggested the Tesla founder ignored a far more obvious answer: Water, the kind we drink and occasionally promote on social media.

Lexus has a wild vision for its cars of the future. The Toyota subsidiary is unveiling its concept SUV, the UX, at the Paris Motor Show that kicks off October 1 — and it features an actual hologram globe. As Lexus writes in its press...Show More Summary

Newly-developed acoustic technologies used to move particles and create haptic feedback in mid-air have stirred the imagination of many researchers. Unfortunately, the complexity of the equipment required to perform these functions has meant that air-shaping technology has been somewhat expensive and difficult. Show More Summary
Sound can now be structured in three dimensions. Researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and the University of Stuttgart have found a way of generating acoustic holograms, which could improve ultrasound diagnostics and material testing. The holograms can also be used to move and manipulate particles.
We’re all familiar with holograms, the projected 3D images created by manipulating light. But can you create a hologram with sound? Read more...
3D-printed plastic blocks can now be turned into acoustic holograms that generate 3D shapes made of sound, which could function like sonic "tractor beams," according to a new study.
Instead of an ultrasonic transducer array, you can now make tractor beams with some plastic and a 3D printer
A simple technique has been developed that produces holograms made of sound waves. These acoustic landscapes are used to manipulate microscale objects, and offer great potential in medical imaging and selective heating. See Letter p...
A new way of shaping sound waves in 3D aids technology and could be useful for medical ultrasound applications
Holographic techniques are fundamental to applications such as volumetric displays, high-density data storage and optical tweezers that require spatial control of intricate optical or acoustic fields within a three-dimensional volume. Show More Summary
The technique looks like something out of Star Trek — but has real potential uses in engineering and medicine.
Jem and the Holograms, the popular comic based on the 1980s cartoon about rock stars, romance, and rivalry, has been closely associated with the art of Sophie Campbell since she and writer Kelly Thompson first launched the book. However,...Show More Summary
You thought the HOLOGRAMS had it rough back when they had to team up with the MISFITS?! Well, just wait until they meet the European super group taking the U.S. by storm... THE STINGERS! The post Jem and the Holograms #19 appeared first on CBR.com.
Thanks to an upcoming series from writer Kelly Thompson (Jem and the Holograms, A-Force) and artist Leonardo Romero, I'm getting exactly what I've been hoping for: a Kate Bishop Hawkeye solo comic.
A last second joke addition to a lineup exposed a ton about meme culture, clickbait, the state of journalism, how news is shared, and affection for a dead gorilla.
While Seven and Kim work on an astrometrics lab, the Doctor and Torres meet an alien hologram who is the sole survivor...
