Camera maker RED is building a phone with a 'holographic' screen
From Engadget - July 6, 2017

The company's bombastic press release claims the phone will pack a 5.7-inch holographic display capable of displaying in normal 2D media, stereo 3D stuff and RED's special "4-view content" (whatever that is). That extreme display flexibility is all thanks to some sort of RED nanotechnology that the company did not feel the need to explain in any way. You will also find full support for augmented reality, virtual reality and mixed reality, because why not? The goal was to create a phone that did not additional glasses or headsets to take in all this rich mediawe just wish they tried to elaborate on the tech more. Anyway.

RED is obviously best known as a camera company, so it's little surprise that the phone can also be used to create those 4-view .h4v files and share them with others who have the right hardware. Beyond that, though, the company says the phone will integrate into its existing line of digital cinema cameras to act as a controller and external monitor. Oh, and the phone is modular, too: part of the Hydrogen foundation is a special data connector that allows for external add-ons to capture "higher quality motion and still images."
