Holographic display is a type of display technology that has the ability to provide all four eye mechanisms:[1] binocular disparity, motion parallax, accommodation and convergence.

Electro-holographic display[edit]

Electro-holographic display is a type of holographic display that uses electroholography for recording and reconstructing 3D objects. This display has advantages over other 3D displays; for example, it can reconstruct 3D images with full parallax.[2] [3]


In 2005, researchers at the University of Texas have claimed to create the first true holographic display.[4]

In 2008, scientists created the first rewritable and erasable holographic systems.[5]

In November 2010, researchers at the University of Arizona announced that they developed the fastest 3D motion hologram - which can refresh once every 2 seconds.[6]

In June 2013, the MIT researcher Michael Bove has claimed holographic televisions could be in living rooms in the next 10 years at the price of today’s two-dimensional sets because of technology being developed by Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Media Lab.[7]
