The allure of holographic gaming has been around for decades, having shown up in arcade parlors as far back as 1991. That’s when Sega introduced a game called Time Traveler, a cheesy western/sci-fi mishmash with holograms of live-action actors in a specially designed arcade cabinet.  Now nearly 30 years later, a company called Looking Glass Factory is selling an 8K holographic display for PCs.

It’s not for gaming, and that’s okay—there’s not a consumer GPU out there that can adequately handle 8K gameplay anyway, let alone whatever demands rendering holograms would add to the mix. But perhaps in the future it will be a different story.
