Samsung Patents Smartphone with 3D Holographic Projection

Like legit 3D images in the air

The patent in question has been published by the World Intellectual Property Office and the United States Patent and Trademark Office describes a display that utilises a new type of spatial light modulator that removes “the limited viewing angle and low resolution of current holographic technologies” - which is where the technology for holograms is at right now.

The technology sounds too good to be true but it is known that Samsung is working on smartphone holograms for a while now so perhaps they did solve the resolution and viewing angle problem.
