Realtime Holographic Motion Display Video

This realtime holographic motion display from Zebra is a podium-style screen that shows three-dimensional images without the need for special glasses. The display takes 3D digital information and then renders it in real time.

The video below shows a LIDAR image of the MIT campus as it is rendered in real time using their motion display.

This display sounds like teledar, a three-dimensional television technology described by William Tenn in his 1951 story The Jester.

This display could be used to display a real-time 3D chessboard like the one Star Wars fans are familiar with.

[Han] returned to his checking, passing in front of a small circular table. The top was covered with small squares lit from beneath, while computer monitors were set into each side. Tiny three-dimensional figures were projected above the tabletop from various squares.
