HP Labs researchers have created the first screen to produce a 3D hologram display without the need for the use to wear any special glasses.

As Hewlett-Packard physicist David Fattal explains, objects can be viewed "one centimeter either in front of or underneath the display," and the screen can be tilted to view the objects from different angles. Basically, imagine Star Wars-level technology coming out of a smartphone, so that users can see a 360-degree view of the person they are speaking to floating right in front of them.

With further development, the holographic screens seen in countless Sci-Fi movies could become a reality, with 3D hologram displays revolutionizing the tech, education and medical industries.
