With the current rage over 3D technology invading our movie theaters and homes now, it wasn't going to be long before something like this came to fruition. Cisco CEO John Chambers has predicted that holograms over IP will become "commonplace" within ten years. Verizon is already conducting experiments with hologram technology over their FiOS network, with their CIO tinkering with a 1Gbps link in Manhattan, NY.

With the constantly growing hunger for bandwidth of these new technologies due to file size, Cisco is stating that even streaming video will quadruple bandwidth demands by 2014 so the 1 Gbps link may be necessary to keep even the simplest 3D video from being a choppy mess by then. Considering the fact that some DSL connections occasionally hiccup with simple YouTube videos, these types of speeds seem pretty far off in the distance for a lot of people, but ten years can be like a century in the tech world.
