The original “Star Wars,” a movie later subtitled “A New Hope,” inspired generations of filmmakers and other creators.
R2-D2’s holographic broadcast of Princess Leia to Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker proved particularly motivating to Taylor Scott.
A scientist who applied for his first patent at age 15, Scott is on a mission to bring holograms – similar to those created by the beloved droid – to the masses.
And the San Diego-based company Scott founded, IKIN, is on the verge of achieving that goal. During the CES show that starts Monday, IKIN will meet with potential sellers and investors about its in-development smartphone accessory that turns content on the device into three-dimensional holograms.
