This could certainly have a place in the market.
I'm skeptical as to how realistic these methods might feel and how easy they would be to use for interaction.
With no actual resistance mechanism, something might "feel" solid, but you're still going to put your hand right through it (or push it without meaning to). There's feedback, but no force.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
That's really awesome. I'm very excited by this, as well as the links to developers of mid-air displays.
I think to a greater degree this speaks more and more to the whole market moving to a virtual platform. The methods won't be realistic at first but as it develops it will get better. Then you think about the level of development holography is seeing connect the to and you really have something. Imagine not having a physical monitor, but a holographic monitor, No mouse at all. just use your hands to move, cut and paste, Select objects on your screen. I think in a way it points to a pretty large market shift to the mobility front as well. Laptop versus desktop has been favoring it for a few years now. Then look at cell phone mobility I see a computer the size of a child's shoebox, with a holographic display on top. Add this in not for the force feedback but the virtual movement and you have a whole platform.
