Touchable holograms are interactive, too?!? (Tomorrow Daily 279)

Jeff discusses Amazon's new update to its Prime Air delivery drone prototype, plus the official price tag on Nokia's Ozo VR camera, and a hologram that reacts to human touch.

Amazon offered up a very public update to its Prime Air service, via former "Top Gear" host (and new Amazon contract player) Jeremy Clarkson and a brand-new prototype of its delivery drone. There weren't too many specifics, but we did get a glimpse at how the service might work from start to finish. Now all we need are some official FAA regulations and a launch date!

Nokia announced its Ozo VR camera months ago, but last night, we finally got an official launch window and price. You'll shell out $60,000 for this 360-degree camera, likely pricing out hobbyists, prosumers, and even smaller studios; however, the cost is in the same range as other film cameras. We won't be picking one of these up, but we're sure someone will pony up the cash to snag one, and we can't wait to see what they make with it.

Today's featured story revolves around a team of Japanese researchers and a project they're calling "Fairy Lights." Fairies aren't real, but there's a little bit of magic in this story, as the holograms projected are interactive. A person can touch the tiny hologram and it will change, making this a step toward larger interactive holograms like 3D models, video conferencing and more.
