NVIDIA Project RON to be Google Home like device?

WCCF Tech received a photo of a slide that details Project R.O.N., an internal NVIDIA project that seems to focus on the smart home device market. Not a lot of details, but there seems to be AI and hologram technology involved. The leak comes from someone who saw an NVIDIA employee working on this project on the Caltrain.
The dev portions mention skills related to both the AI and hologram segments. The AI part is something the company should have absolutely no problem with considering its expertise in this particular field so the hologram is what actually piqued my interest. No one has of yet managed to make a real, portable hologram, and I very much doubt NVIDIA can change that (its a problem of how physics work – not innovation). But considering I can see a fairly bulky device, I am assuming they have some really cool 3D projection mapping tech in there – which is the next best thing to holograms of science fiction.
