Abstract

It’s early days for holographic technology, and nobody knows for sure where it will lead. But recall that when, in December 1974, the Altair 8800 microcomputer was featured on the cover of Popular Electronics magazine, nobody had any idea of the tectonic shifts in the computer industry that would follow. First dismissed as a toy to be played with by nerdy enthusiasts, the personal computer went on to displace the “serious” mainframe computers that had preceded it. In the early days of the Internet, called DARPANET at the time, a few select universities were connected to federal government research centers for scientific research collaborations. Few foresaw that it would span the globe, connect billions of people, and even reach out into space.
