The Sub-Spacial Communication Pod sounds like something out of a bad sci-fi movie. In reality, it looks more like something out of my favorite sci-fi movie.
The idea is to have a 3D character that you can interact with. The really cool thing is that it doesn't require you to wear special glasses. You will even be able to purchase holographic clothes and accessories for your character.
Although it is designed to do such things as deliver your news and teach English, we all know what every geek is going to do with it. They will get a character that resembles Princes Leia and have it repeat her famous line.
