Elon Musk Wants to Build the Iron Man Hologram UI For Real

The hologram interfaces Tony Stark uses in Iron Man are awesome, no doubt. But they also aren't real. Yet. Elon Musk has been cooking up something very Stark-y, and he's planning to show it off soon.

Musk isn't sharing any of the nitty-gritty details yet, but he mentioned his grand scheme on Twitter. This better not be a joke.

We've seen hints of this tech before—thanks to the Leap Motion Controller and an illusion called Pepper's ghost—but it was all very beta, a long way away from an actual application. The Hyperloop is pretty far from application too. Hopefully this hologram tech is a little closer to finished. How could this not be cool? [Elon Musk via Business Insider via CNET]
