The U.S. Patent & Trademark department has published a patent application by the Korean giant, which has the potential to change and revolutionize how we watch television forever. The patent details a holographic technology for television sets that also goes on to explain why the 3D TV did not hit home with the consumers. Apparently, both the deflected glasses and the shutter glasses associated with 3D TVs of this generation cause fatigue due to the lenticular or parallax barrier method that they use to produce the three-dimensional images. Tiredness and sometimes even nausea may occur as the focus of the eyes and the depth perceived by the brain differs significantly to produce the desired 3D effect. The holographic TV will change the entire scenario by eliminating the current gen 3D glasses and the working principle behind them altogether.
The new holographic tech will ensure that the depth of perception and the actual focus of our eyes do not differ and remain in sync with each other, therefore cutting out all the discomforts associated with watching 3D content.

If you just took a look at the fake Galaxy S8 smartphones which have recently started selling online, then rest assured that this is not what you are seeing here. This leak is brought to you by SlashLeaks and from the looks of it, this is the real deal. The photos are high resolution and give us a clear look at both the S8 and the S8+, leaving nothing to the imagination for the official March 29 unboxng event.
On the front, the virtual Home button can be seen in the middle, which is now a part of the Always On display it seems. On the upper bezel, there's the iris scanner, the front camera, the LED notifications light, the ambient light sensor, the earpiece and a few other sensors as well. The Black Pearl color which is what we are seeing here seamlessly blends the curved display with the thin bezels making it look even more beautiful. At the bottom we get to look at the USB Type-C port, the 3.5mm jack and a speaker grill. On the top, there is of course the SIM tray and a secondary microphone. In my personal opinion, the S8 looks slightly more scrumptious this year. What do you think?

Are you familiar with the 1980's "Back to the future" movie series ? Remember that hoverboard with no wheels ? Well, it's not science fiction anymore...
Lexus has revealed that it has successfully developed a real prototype Hoverboard. Lexus's project team has collaborated with experts in super-conductive technology to build an actual, working, real-life hoverboard. No joke.
Actually, the team is using magnetic levitation with liquid nitrogen-cooled super-conductors and permanent magnets to give the hoverboard frictionless movement of a kind that had been thought impossible.
Lexus said that the hoverboard shares some design cues with the current Lexus range of car including that "Predator" style spindle grille. It apparently features materials sourced from Lexus's road car range, though whether it'll boast a curiously old-school digital clock remains unclear.
The hoverboard is planned as a one-off, sadly, and won't be put up for sale. But who cares? They'll be testing the prototype in Barcelona over the next few weeks, ahead of a summer launch.
Check the Video below to see a teaser of the technology in action: a very small teaser, admittedly, that doesn't show a whole lot in the way of hovery, skatey action.
