RED Digital Cinema Announces a Holographic Phone


RED Digital Cinema has announced a new product category for their lineup.  A Holographic Phone.

See the PDF for the details

I don’t really get it.  But that’s probably because I’m not sure what exactly Holographic is.  Other than another VR/AR gimmick.  I hate to be a doubter, but I am.  I’m sure this is for some people, so that’s cool.  It’s just not for me.  I’m not one who would use VR for storytelling.  However, I see some uses for VR and AR that would be really cool, but not for storytelling.

Looking further into it, it seems like this is a core product that will be expanded upon.  And Also, can act as a monitor for Red cameras, making it the cheapest RED monitor available.
