Better than Star Wars: Chemistry discovery yields 3-D table-top objects crafted from light

A scientist's childhood dream of 3-D projections like those he saw in a Star Wars movie has led to development of new technology for making animated 3-D table-top objects by structuring light. The technology uses photoswitch molecules to make an infinite number of volumetric 3-D light structures viewable from 360 degrees, which will be useful for biomedical imaging, education, engineering, TV, movies, video games and more.
