While this story specifically references an iPhone, we all know that Apple tends to bring most of their biggest tech advances to the iPad as well, so we wanted to share this intriguing news here.
Earlier this week, @Maura posted an interesting story regarding a supposedly secret new Taiwanese lab owned by Apple. According to the story, this high-tech lab will be developing more advanced OLED displays for future iPhone devices. We have a follow-up story that just came in this morning which suggests they are developing display technology even more advanced than that in this new lab.
According to the intel, Apple is working on an advanced holographic display at this "secret" lab. If true, that means that an iPhone projecting a Star Wars-like hologram might not be too far in the distant future. Here's a quote with a few more of the details,
You can see the Ostendo demonstration in a video we included in the thread below. Of course, if this turns out to be true, it could still be years away before the technology can be mass produced for a consumer level iPhone product. We might not see it until the iPhone 9 or 10 becomes a reality. Either way, it's exciting to imagine the possibilities of what a holographic iPhone might be capable of!
