Hi-Tech Replaces R2-D2… Wait, huh?

Thanks to some very industrious Belgians, Obi-Wan Kenobi has a new way of picking up his messages. Aptly dubbed the HOLOCUBE, inventor Joris Vanbriel is targeting retailers and manufacturers trying to attract Generation X&Y shoppers plagued by short attention spans. Marketing to this demographic has become more and more difficult, with veins filled of caffeine and sugar, myspace, texting, iPods and that damn rock & roll…wait, what was my point? Oh yeah, by being the first to market with a low-maintenance, counter-top 3D holographic display, the HOLOCUBE has high hopes of bringing 3D holographic technology to the masses. Packed in a stylish doppelganger for Apple’s HiFi, is a 40 gig hard drive that delivers over 18 hours of compressed video. Many Bothans died to bring us this information.
