* One of the most breathtakingly cool displays of the Holographic Terminal is the piloting interface for the Companion's ships and Shuttles in ''EarthFinalConflict''. A series of gestures replaces the complex switch flipping of modern fighter craft cockpits, and gives the pilot complete control over every aspect of the ship.

* The short-lived series ''Series/TheCape'' featured such a device employed by vigilante/blogger Oracle (SummerGlau).

Added DiffLines:

* Used near-ubiquitously by the Imperium in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' for managing both naval and on-surface operations. They seem to require some sort of "wands" to manipulate objects within them, although there seem to be either touchscreens or keyboards to back them up. Given how [[LostTechnology run-down]] all things Imperial are, they're not exactly of the best quality and require PercussiveMaintenance from time to time.

* All over the place in ''{{Starstruck}}'', which got in on the act early, seeing as it came out in comics form in the early '80's.
* ''{{Transmetropolitan}}'' had this -- sort of. One of the wide, ''wide'' variety of genetic enhancements people had was the "phone trait", which was essentially an implanted cell phone. To dial a number, you just imagined punching numbers on a keypad under your right hand. The keypad is visible to ''you'', but not to anyone else, since it's just inside your head, technically.

* In the first issue of ''Comicbook/{{Superman}} Unchained'', Lois Lane controls the Daily Planet layout with a holographic terminal.

* ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha [=StrikerS=]'' has these everywhere on Midchilda. It seems most mages can have them pop up wherever they need them.

* It's no holography, of course, but LCD displays are technically transparent, there has been work on transparent OLED displays, and there's always the option to simply aim a projector at a screen made out of certain transparent materials. The coolest example is probably the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vaiRLpuwDZ0 Emulator]], a huge touchscreen with a projector mounted on the floor, that comes with a MinorityReport style DJ control software.

* In ''Film/{{Paycheck}}'', the protagonist is a reverse engineer. He buys a new hologram-projecting TV, plugs it into his lab computer. The TV's specs then appear on the transparent wall behind him, revealing that it is a transparent screen like in MinorityReport. He then manipulates the specs with hand gestures. Pretty much a 2-D version of Stark's gear. RuleOfCool certainly applies, as well as ViewerFriendlyInterface, but it doesn't look implausible for the most part -- except the standing-there-waving-your-arms-around-for-hours-on-end part. And when he finishes that project he decides to ditch the screen for the holo-TV, so it's just a floating projection.

* The computers of the Ptolemaios (both I and II) in ''{{Gundam00}}'' [[UpToEleven take this to a whole new level]], as the holographic terminals can appear ''[[FridgeLogic anywhere on the ship.]]'' As a less extreme example, the terminals utilised by the rest of the world are pretty much like this too, except they only can be generated at specific locations near hardware of some sort.

* ''MartianSuccessorNadesico'' used these everywhere. ''Everywhere.'' It also had a lot of fun with the trope by, for example, distorting the video screens in 3-D for comedic effect when the on-screen character was yelling -- and that's just scratching the surface of the many-and-varied hologram gags the series worked in. In the movie, there's a scene where a problem with a space station computer causes flocks of holographic video screens to chase the occupants of the station around. They don't seem to realize that the projections are insubstantial and harmless...

Normally it might appear near an emitter of some kind, maybe even inside actual pieces of transparent plastic or in the empty space between metallic frames. However they're increasingly turning into the SFX equivalent of Internet pop ups: Appearing without the need for an emitter or any kind of prompting by TheSmartGuy who'll use it. For much the same reason they're more common in [[{{Cyberspace}} VR environments]] and [[TheMetaverse themed worlds.]]
