holographic video

MIT technology review: The diffraction pattern from just one high-resolution hologram can easily use up more than a terabyte of data — enough to fill 1),600 compact discs. A moderately flicker-free holographic video would require at least 20 such holograms per second. Clearly, churning through 20 terabytes worth of information every second would require extraterrestrial technology: today’s fastest PCs operate at one- hundred-thousandth that rate.
