The alternative source is a bit better.

Unbelievable! Sony has some ENGINEERS!

So now Sony is copying Disney and calling it their own too? Disney did this with Fantasmic around 10 years ago. It's a fake hologram effect with water and projectors, nothing new. You can even see the water spray splashing down around the base.

dats gotta be special effects. or will sony once again be innovating. I aint a sony fanboy or nuthin but sony does bring in breakthru tech frm time to time so i give em credit

It's a projection on a continuous water spray. It's been done elsewhere. Not taking away from the cool factor... cuz it is, but it's not a hologram.

INehalemEXI3850d ago

I did'nt see any continous water spray, and holograms have been around for awhile. Just never seen something done on this scale.

gonzopia3850d ago

Of course it's a water spray. The light from the lasers is reflecting off the water. Light is generally invisible to the naked eye if it has nothing to illuminate, like an object (or in this case, moisture particles in the air).

Come on.

Lasers on a water spray... Like, for example, Disney's "Fantasmic" show does that a lot, however they show cartoons on the water sprays, not 3D images... but how 3D is that monster anyway? I mean, is it a video of a 3D rendered monster or is it being projected on 3D in the air? Can't be really sure because the video isn't of the best quality...

Nevertheless, GREAT job, sony!

No water here. Spooky huh.

I want to see Godzilla vs Nessy.

I wanna see the CLOVERFIELD monster/alien/experiment gone wrong.

They should use this for advertising MGS4, KZ2, R2, or one of their huge games. That would be better than Msoft's halo advertising.

don't you have to record it before you can play it as a Hologram WTF?.......
