Holographic display projects picking up speed

"HoloDeem, Inc. of Kirkland, Wash., recently introduced the HoloDeem Coupon Machine, a three-sided kiosk about the size of a refrigerator. Shoppers walking by the front of the machine see 3-D holographic aerial images and video. The images appear to float in space. The company calls them holo-ads and holo-mercials. Computer touch screens mounted on both sides of the kiosk give shoppers an opportunity to learn more about the holo-advertised products and receive coupons.
