Similar to the ViewerFriendlyInterface, yet very much an UnusualUserInterface, the HolographicTerminal is just that, a combination keyboard and screen made of transparent HardLight that can be used to control computers, machines, or access other {{Phlebotinum}} derived devices and abilities. It's somehow solid enough to stop your hand going through it (but presumably not so much to stop a gunshot or sword, but at least [[ExplosiveInstrumentation it won't explode in your face]]) and can tell what you're pushing much like a regular touch screen. Whatever it displays is usually visible from "behind" as well (so be sure not to read personal mail in public).

* Practically ''abused'' to its logical extreme in ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'': cellphones, toys and advertisements all have projected holographic displays that move around outside the physical boundary of the device emitting them. Military equipment seems "serious" and physical, while commercial electronics indulge in [[ViewerFriendlyInterface all sorts of holographic fancy]]. A particularly egregious example is a cellphone-to-cellphone file transfer system that consists of actually ''tossing'' a small holographic file from one phone to another.
** That last one [[TechnologyMarchesOn doesn't sound so unrealistic now;]] some smartphones are now sharing files just by being lightly tapped against each other.
