Identify two companies and one product produced by each company that directly relate to the NCT technical application your team has selected.
IO2 Technology - Heliodisplay M30i
Heliodisplay images are unique and offer many advantages over existing displays due to their non-physical floating characteristics and are visible under normal lighting such in an office or corporate center. Images or video play directly from a computer or DVD player, using a standard video or computer cable. The M30i includes the capabilities of interactive touchscreen control. The Heliodisplay is designed with flexibility in mind so it can be hidden (into a pedestal, table etc), so that only its projected image is visible. The projection system connects to a standard video source, such as DVD player or PC, and projects any images that would be viewable on a computer screen or television. No specialized hardware or software is needed to view images.
Propose and describe a new product or new process based on your team's NCT technical application.
A new product that could be created is a holographic processor put into a cell-phone. If you can not make it to a meeting you can just flip out your phone and it reads your face and sends data in real-time to a holographic display at the meeting. The phone can also have a holographic display as in Star Wars so you can view the meeting. High-definition headphones would be a must so you can listen to Mr. Jones' report on what he wants accomplished this quarter in finances. Another new idea for an invention containing this device could be a holographic projector that can download the images of people and be sent some where else. Some examples could be a presidential speech. Instead of the president going out into to public, they could give the speech in a safe environment protected by their secret service. This would allow a safer perspective of things and there would be a greater chance of stopping assassinations and so forth.

To Whom It May Concern:
We are a group of students from Blaine High School participating in a national competition called the Internet Science and Technology Fair. We have designed a holographic imaging projector. The features of our product include a high-resolution output, user friendly interface, customizable shell colors, and optional interactive screen and camera. We believe this is a good fit for your company because you create holographic projectors, and we would like to introduce this helpful and new projector to your line of production.
A requirement for the competition is that we contact a company in the industry to review our product. We have identified you as the industry leader in holographic displays. We would be grateful if you would review our product and gave us feedback.
Thank you for taking the time to review our product. We appreciate it!
