Abstract

Today, probably more people have imagined or talked about holograms than have examined them first-hand. Holograms occupy an unusual no-man’s land in contemporary culture. Over nearly seventy years in development, their engineering achievements, commercial applications and anticipated future have fitted together uncomfortably. The result is a technology that inspires divergent uses and unstable forecasts. - See more at: http://blog.oup.com/2015/12/holograms-contemporary-culture/#sthash.RaMd0aOB.dpuf
