They usually have visible emitters. To a lesser degree, humans have also started to use these.

* 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.

* 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.

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.
