We explore the technologies that could revolutionize the way we communicate. With Apple and Samsung both investing in hologram technology, holography could be the future. We meet an inventor of a micro-projector system that could bring holograms to our smartphones, and why beam someone into your phone, when you could beam your thoughts directly into someone else’s brain? We meet a scientist who successfully demonstrated that "telepathy" is possible and join him as he tries a new, dramatic experiment.
