Holographic Imaging in the Courtroom

Holographic imaging has made its way to the courtroom. According to an article in Legal Technology,
[H]olographic imaging. . . makes it possible to show such things as three-dimensional views of aneurysms, running automotive parts and structural failures.

"For $450, you can project a 3-D image in the air of a section of a brain. And the judge or jury can look around the image ... and it's identical to the subject's brain," said John Eamigh, a technology consultant for the Chicago-based litigation consulting firm Zagnoli McEvoy Foley.

But some lawyers worry that too much gadgetry will sever the emotional connection they need to make with jurors.
