3D modeling, such as the ability to view a rotatable image, has been
used for quite some time now, but I think the value of 3D displays
for technical documents is going to be very limited as long as glasses
are needed to view them, because switching back and forth between
viewing a screen with 3D glasses and viewing a real object without
them is a quick path to a splitting headache, especially if your
workspace has flourescent lighting. If someone manages to devise a
way to generate 3D without the need for glasses (think Star Trek
holodeck), that will be the game-changer.
