sigh....
glad to see you are not jaded mscion...
but remember the hype around "tilt brush"...
same thing...
hype...
unless you are a "maker" in that true sense of dimensional work..
everyone else is relegated to the position of "observer"...
and the "understanding" curve is much higher for holographic understanding than it is for "tilt brush"...
most people when they look at an apple...
their heads simplify it into a 2-d representation...
Like most of everything else...
Precious precious few people ...
can....do...or bother to learn...
the discipline of how to look at an apple ...straight on...imagine the curvature to the sides...imagine light source(s) giving shadow...and can imagine the contents ..where they are suspended inside...and "see" in their minds...the other side of the apple ...without turning the apple around..
It is an artistic discipline...learned ...with years of work at it...
It is also a mindset ..that the world is more than 2-d ...and most people can't accept that...in their minds...it is too much for them..
The prime interest of society is not about expanding one's view of the world...but simplifying it ...narrowing it down...
So no.. I don't buy it.

it will be a neat gimmick for a while....being able to look at media that has been adapted for it...
(depending on how much there ends up being...I mean ...really...a single studio is doing this...and expectation that the entire system of media and how it is presented ...will be overhauled ...because of 1 single studio...in today's tech climate ...is almost preposterous... Every film company...every image company ...every gaming company....every advertising firm....is either going to ignore it until they can't anymore...or try to buy out the tech. and bury it...or ridiculously...invest in it...or even more unlikely ..overhaul part or some of their manufacturing or company divisions to accommodate...at financial risk I may add...)

If it does take off...yes ...scientific and artistic and medical usage is where it will be "at"...

For everyone else...
an expensive gimmick..to either disappear ..or become commonplace...
