Imagine pulling out your cellphone and projecting photos onto the nearest wall.  Or projecting the screen of your PDA as a hologram in the thin air.  Scientists are now telling us this scenario is not only possible but likely in the near future.  Cambridge University scientists are reporting a number of breakthroughs that will pave the way for laser projection of not only still images but video too.  A custom chip they have developed can generate 200 holograms a second which is four times faster than needed for smooth video.  We may see this much sooner than anyone imaged.
