The Proto “M”: A Compact Holographic Display and Media Device

 |  |  |  |  May 11, 2022

If Back To The Future II taught us anything, it’s that the future will be filled with holograms. Of course, Back To The Future II was supposed to take place in 2015, and we haven’t realized even a small fraction of the technology it promised, but enough about my resentfulness; this is about the Proto Hologram “M,” a compact holographic display and media device made for home use. Curse you, Robert Zemeckis!

With its integrated AI-enabled smart camera, the $2,000 “M” can provide two-way holographic communication with another unit, taking video calls to the next level. That level being holographic calls, just so we’re clear. That is if my parents ever bother to pick up the hologram when I call, which they probably won’t. I swear I’m not just calling for money again!

Proto imagines the “M” being used in a variety of applications, including virtually trying on clothes, personal training workout routines, and displaying your expensive NFTs so guests know you’re a hip investor. And while all this sounds well and good, I can’t help but be a little skeptical about a technology company that only uploaded their demo video in 480p. Makes me wonder.
