Where are our holographic displays? That's another thing we were promised in the 21st cetury. Three-dimensional displays.

Sure, there are a few clumsy prototypes floating around, but we still don't have something actually useful and in mainstream production.

I'd almost rather have holographic displays than flying cars.

2023-05-28 Rerun commentary: Yeah, still don't have them. We do have simulated augmented reality displays via headsets, appearing in movies and stuff. Where the user ends up waving their arms in the air like an idiot to move blocks of code around.
