By 2015 Cellphones Will Have 3D Holographic Video Calls.

It's no surprise that Apple's FaceTime application took off as a huge success. Seems that everything the Cupertinto company touches becomes a leader in the industry... IBM surveyed 3,000 researchers to find out what the next big 'thing' is for the future and that 'thing' is 3D holographic video calls...!
The video calls will be projected from cellphones using pico-projector technology, according to the survey. Other "likely" technologies we can look forward to using in just five years' time are batteries powered by air (which will last 10 times' longer); computer programs crunching numbers for real-time traffic information (which makes me think none of those 3,000 people have ever used a sat-nav before); and heat-generation for homes, from computers and data centers. Anyone who's ever fired up a YouTube video or Photoshop to warm their naked thighs will know about that.
Now please don't rush to your local Electronic store and reserve one of these things... because this is just another annual prediction by IBM.
