I think you are referring to holography. ITs a technology thats been around
since the 70s in popular form. like many such things its benefitting and
receiving incredible boosts from technology gains in general. I know there's a
fellow at MIT Media lab working on them as well as many other places. You might
want to do a search for "holography" on your favorite engine.

all the best,
