A team from the University of Sussex, England, reports in the journal, Nature, their success with an attempt to create a hologram that “can simultaneously deliver visual, auditory and tactile content”. Holograms have been around for some time. Candidate Narendra Modi campaigned in the 2014 elections in parts of Uttar Pradesh with 3D holograms of himself delivering speeches, establishing a connect with people whom he could not directly reach in remote areas. The scientists have dubbed their model Multimodal Acoustic Trap Display. Ultrasound waves move particles around to create forms, small speakers produce the sound and the movement of particles creates a sensation similar to how pressurised air feels on your skin.

Imagine how this could work out. You want to produce a ghost in a haunted house? This here is the program for you. Don’t have anyone to do the tango with you tonight? Take the pricey little package bang in the middle of the display. Want one that can be customised to look like you burning the midnight oil over your books at home, while you are out having a little fun? Want that VIP guest at your party? Add his Remote Appearance Fee plus GST, please. If you really want East to meet West and science, spirituality, take this Avatar program. Summon your deity yourself, cut out the middleman.
