Verizon must be working on some pretty advanced stuff, either that, or they are looking to do some patent trolling in the future. According to reports, Verizon, of all companies, has filed to trademark "holograms." Perhaps they see a big opportunity in the future to replace all the currently available 3D technology, or maybe they found some super advanced tech in a crashed alien spaceship. I would have expected an actual technology manufacturer, like Google or Apple, to grab this one. Verizon?
Still, regardless of who creates it or trademarks it, it certainly would be cool to have a phone that projects a holographic image. If our phones were that much like R2D2, then they really would be "the droids we are looking for."
