I recall there was a sci-fi flick where some alien race on Earth uses a futuristic panel that, when pointed at a particular area, displays what had happened previously in that particular location. It is a tech is thankfully not real, but we are probably not far from it either. During Facebook‘s annual F8 conference earlier month, Facebook’s head of social VR Rachel Franklin let the crowd in on a somewhat similar tech (it’s rather creepy, TBH).
