It would be great if we could somehow create an illusion (I don't quite know how) so that people think (and see) that the woman is wearing a Hijab, when in fact, she isn't. I know that 'cloaking' technology exists that projects the image of the background in the front of the object to make it seem invisible. Can we use a derivative of that technology to 'project' an image of the Hijab around the head of the woman?
Why?
To enable women in Islamic countries, (or anywhere) to not wear the Hijab if they don't want to.

Use necklaces as hologram generator in disguise

It's a fun idea, at least to think about the practical use. It could work for a significant number of users if flawlessly designed.
Just to get the idea rolling, can we use necklaces that use holograms around the face to generate a virtual hijab? What kind of tweaks would the necklace need from the present day models of hologram generating devices? For example, the following questions can be asked for the design features of such a device:
-what kind of battery to use? -what material should the necklace be of? -what kind of projecting device to use: what size?
-how to make the projecting device to generate dynamic holograms based on the external environment: can the hologram adapt to constantly changing lighting conditions?

A necklace would certainly work, although it probably would need some kind of clip-on with miniature cameras so that necklaces could be changed (to not afford a give-away).

I don't think that a society that obligates women to wear hijabs would accept an illusory alternative, even if that was technologically feasible.

Michaela D How would they know it was illusory, if done flawlessly?

Shireesh Apte by touching it. Technology doesn't allow for it to be flawless yet. People would realize something looks strange with the illusory hijabs and just by touching it they would prove it is artificial. i am afraid this could really get women into trouble.
