Star Trek-like device can beam holograms-now i hope somebody will configure image with on line touch to make internet virtual body contact.
Forget video conferencing, a newly developed system lets users interact with life-sized three dimensional holographs. The device could also be used as an interactive 3D anatomy model

A Queen’s University researcher has created a Star Trek-like human-scale 3D conferencing pod that allows people in different locations to video conference as if they are standing in front of each other. “Why Skype when you can talk to a life-size 3D holographic image of another person?” says Roel Vertegaal, of the Human Media Lab.
the next richest man will be the person who configure how to configure and make a reality of "virtual touch" with "virtual hologram".
Devices that deliver sensations to the skin surface of their users (i.e.--tight body suits and gloves) are also sometimes used in virtual reality to complete the experience. "Virtual sex"--in which two people are able to have sex with each other through virtual reality, or in which a human can have sex with a "simulated" partner that only exists on a computer—becomes a reality.
