At a technology event in Hong Kong one company unveiled a hologram producing stick. It has lights on it that flash as it spins and produces astoundingly realistic images.

I grew up thinking holograms were just science fiction hopefulness and probably wouldn't ever be good enough to exist in my lifetime. I was wrong. And this video proves how far we've come from Princess Leia recording a video hologram message in Star Wars, to the technology possible actually existing. I could watch this video for hours but I'd really like to see this happen in person. So cool. Its a wonderful time to be alive!
