A group of researchers at the University of Tokyo's Department of Complexity Science and Engineering have been working on a prototype of holograms that you can touch called Haptoclone. The device allows you to send a holographic image of say, a ball, to another person who can then also interact with the object.

Explains Digital Buzz Blog, "Each HaptoClone has four high-end ultrasound arrays that deliver ultrasonic radiation pressure to allow you to feel the Hologram object. While Microsoft Kinect maps the object in real-time and so that the ultrasound arrays in the other device deliver the correct 'feeling' that you’d expect based on its position."

Qoncept Inc. Uses DeckLink SDI Micro for Pitching Tracking System Baseboy

Blackmagic Design announced today that Blackmagic’s DeckLink SDI Micro was used for capture and playback with the pitching tracking system “Baseboy,” a newly announced system by Qoncept Inc. capable of visualizing a ball’s path and interlocking with a camera feed. Baseboy was first used, in conjunction with a Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera 4K, in the recent Japan/US international baseball match, Samurai Japan Series 2019, broadcast by TV Asahi as Japan’s first real time baseboy analysis system.
