Holotext Messaging
One day I'm sure it'll be possible to receive holographic messages on your iPhone. But not yet. Which means that this video showing (what appears to be) an iPhone displaying Holotext messages is a fake.

I kept expecting Princess Leia to pop up and say, "Help me, Obi-Wan. You're my only hope."

I expect the pop-ups might be more like: "Help me, Obi-Wan... you're my only hope for the exiled Finance Minister to safeguard our nation's gold and jewels... A great reward will be yours if you assist us by giving us a major credit card #, thanking you, Princess Leia"...
