Nothing actually dies in our universe as such. It only gets transformed from one form to another by known and unknown forces of revolution. A silent technological revolution is taking place in smartphone and other computer hardware. The smartphone in it’s current form will be virtually dead in next couple of years. It may happen in less than three years.
Smartphones will be replaced by Holographic Computing Devices or HoloPhone(s) having capacity to manipulate Holographic 3D Images in real-time. They will be available in the form of headsets or in the form of wearable eye devices projecting 3D images directly in front of viewer’s eyesight.
Some of the devices available in the market are Microsoft HoloLens, Oculus Rift , Google Tango and Google Glass. It will make 360 degree shift in the way people are going to interact with the real world. We can term it as HoloPhone.
HoloPhone working with Augmented Reality or Mixed Reality features will change the very basics of computing and man-machine interaction. Touch and click interactions are going to be replaced by gesture and voice. The concept of two dimensional touch screen monitors would cease to exist soon
and Holograms will become the standard method of displaying data and objects. It is also called as Holographic Projection.

It will change E-commerce and E-tailing domain
HoloShop(s) will project complete malls and shops to users in HoloPhone environment where they will be able to interact with the products/services in a limited way. E-tailing vendors selling white goods and apparels will have a new way of giving demo and trials of their products/services to on-line customers. It will be far more real, interactive and informative without damaging the goods.
Holograms of products will change Media and Advertising business
Holograms of products will demo themselves in self-demo mode. All that is possible because of some basic intelligence programmed into Holograms and their capacity to interact in real-time with the real-world.
