With the advancement in technology we can hope to have many new features in our smartphones that were always imagined and wanted by us. There were times when floppy disks with tiny storage capacity were used for data storage and transfer. The advancement in computer technology led to development of CD’s, DVD’s and microSD cards. Now, tech companies claim that we will be able to see realistic 3-D image on screens. The most amazing and awaited advancement in graphics technology is hologram. And according to the news we will be able to have hologram in our smartphones in near future.
MicroSD cards which are very much smaller in size than floppy disk holds a lot more memory. We are already using thumb sized MicroSD cards with capacity of 16 GB and even 32 GB in our smartphones. As the technology advances, the storage capacity of memory cards also increases while at the same time, their size is shrinking to extraordinary size. Imagine MicroSD cards which already have large storage capacity of many GB’s expanded to 200 GB. Such MicroSD cards with large capacity have already been revealed recently.
SanDisk, a leading MicroSD cards providers recently revealed a ultra MicroSD card in a press release with the huge storage capacity of 200GB, enabling the user to have 20 hours of full HD movie right in his pocket on a finger nail sized memory card.

“As the needs of mobile users continue to change, SanDisk is on the forefront of delivering solutions for these demands as is clearly illustrated through their growing portfolio of innovative products, including the new 200GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC card.” said Christopher Chute, Vice President, Worldwide Digital Imaging Practice, IDC.
The statement of Christopher Chute indicates that in future, we might come across memory cards with capacity of tera bytes maybe, depending upon the demands of the smartphones users.

In case of graphics technology, holograms and 3-D images are always shown in movies but these technologies were not considered to be realistic until a technology review, reveals David Fattal’s intentions of making the graphics technology able to show hologram in the smartphones in near future.
Fattal’s company named Leia, plans to display a module capable of producing 3-D image without using any special glasses, later this year. According to Fattal, the 3-D image will be viewable from 64 different view points.
The technology by Fattal will be refined to produce hologram coming out of the conventional liquid crystal display (LCD). Gordon Wetzstein a professor of electrical engineering at Stanford University believes that the impressive advancements in image technology producing hologram is ready to be commercialized.
3-D technology is only an initial step for Leia. According to Fattal, hologram technology is the most essential one which involves 64 cameras placed at precise places. Fattal’s technology has not yet made it possible to view hologram video like princess Leia in star wars. But the technology makes it possible to view hologram image within a 60° arc.
The company plans to release a module in Asian market hoping to get positive response after the failure of recent 3-D televisions. The company hopes its technology to be good enough to make people spend money on it. An obvious opportunity will be mobile gaming. Do you think hologram technology will be able to have positive impact on users?
