This article reports that Cambridge, England-based Light Blue Optics has demonstrated the color prototype of its hologram laser projector. The device was displayed at the firm's Innovation Centre headquarters in Saint John, England. The projector uses an electronically controlled hologram to creates an image by modulating red, green and blue lasers on a small LCD. INSET: What was it like?.
