Holograms + touchable = The Awesome…

It appears some researchers in Tokyo have gotten highly clever with the use of ultrasound waves to create the illusion of holograms you can actually touch.  Just imagine this sort of technology in retail environments – or even combined with technology like Microsoft’s Project Natal?

A key element I likey here is the use of Wiimotes as the sensor platform.  Nintendo does rock sometimes.
