New Star Wars–like display could ‘revolutionize’ virtual reality and offers moving images, sound, and even touch

The new displays can’t create holograms as complex as Princess Leia’s famous distress call. But with further improvements, they could transform virtual reality, providing users a multi-sensory experience without headsets or other cumbersome gear.
