    The prospective applications will increase as the 'pixel' density does. 30x30 is a small start, imagine desktop resolution... ;-)

    Looks so cool. Nice use of current tech, the future is exciting. And those wristbands have use, long distance relationships.

    It reminds me of the visual displays used on Krypton in the film 'Man of Steel'...so cool, life imitating art!

    Somehow incorporate magnets into this project and it may be possible for a hand, or even a person to appear, floating in mid-air. No idea how it would be done, but their are a lot of potential uses if somebody managed it.
