In late January, a three-dimensional image of Princess Leia appeared at an engineering conference in San Francisco. The red, fuzzy avatar didn’t look as realistic as the projection of Princess Leia in 1977′s Star Wars, but it may prove a lot more important. The image created in San Francisco was a true hologram, not a studio special effect. It was created using cheap, off-the-shelf equipment.
