Instant Holograms? :: Super cool technology

I happened to see this on photographer Chase Jarvis’ blog and I thought it was quite cool. This technology allows users to see a hologram created by image recognition software running in tandem with a web cam. It’s being called “Augmented Reality.” Now, if that seemed like totally unrecognizable geek-talk to you, then here’s the the best way to understand it:

It’s actually something the GE has put together to create what appears to be a bit of a renewable energy viral marketing campaign. You can actually print out the sheet of paper and do this yourself.

Imagine what this technology could mean for the future? You could hold up a sheet of paper with some funky shapes on it and then see a presentation appear on the screen before you. How cool is that?
