It’s coming… it’s coming… at least everyone seems to think so… and so is the hype.
As the levels of anticipation crank up for a possible iPad 3 launch , so too do the rumours about any potential virtual world-shattering features the new tablet may boast.
While it is not confirmed that Apple are set to announce the arrival of the updated tablet at an event in San Francisco next Wednesday, keyed up fans have gone to the lengths of producing a video with the fantasy features they are hoping for the most.
And the Apple aficionados have really unleashed their creativity and let speculation run wild with hopes for the likes of a holographic 3D projector and the ability to put iPads together to form larger screens thanks to internal magnets and “near field communication”.
Also showcased in the one minute clip that has been viewed nearly one and a half million times is the prospect of edge to edge retina display, maximising the tablet’s viewing dimensions.
Perhaps the most astonishing mooted aspect is the holographic 3D projector, which in the video shows users playing an app that would make most tech heads weep with joy.
An American football pitch hologram pops up after the stroke of a key, with players moving around in precise detail.
And a second set of projectors see controllers appear on the table, turning it into a giant and unprecedented gaming space that makes the Wii look as complicated as playing Snake on a mobile phone in 2001.
Sadly, Stuart Miles of gadget website Pocket Lint has reportedly dismissed the possibility of such a feature.
“Where things then get a bit silly is a 3D multiplayer hologram set up,” he said.
“Still you have to have some dreaming in a concept don't you? Let's hope it is not too late for Apple to add some of these features.”
Reports suggest the iPad 3 will look similar to the current model with an HD screen, Siri and a fast 'quad-core' processor .
