IV must have really liked that Tupac hologram at Coachella:
“The firm Intellectual Ventures ( http://www.intven.com ) is a well-known licensor, developer, and aggregator of patents in a variety of fields. From time to time, they solicit ideas from top-notch inventors. I have been asked to spread the word that IV released a Request for Invention (“RFI”) pertaining to holographic 3-D display, capture, and processing.
The boundaries of what IV means by “holographic” is explained in their RFI; essentially, there is a bias towards systems that employ diffraction. However, interesting high-quality non-diffractive autostereo displays are also being considered.”
