Star Wars Style 3D Hologram Phones Coming

Star Wars-style 3D hologram phones could  be a reality, as a Polish firm is working on such a system that could allow users to see 3D hologram images of the receiver.
Leia Display Systems, named after the Star War's heroine, intends to take the video phone call feature to its next level.
