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]

In October 2013, David Fattal was awarded Global Innovator of The Year by the MIT Tech Review for the invention of the multiview backlight technology allowing high resolution and full parallax 3D images in a wide angle of view. He became founder and CEO Of LEIA Inc which is developing an interactive holographic display for mobile devices without glasses.[8]
