You have to see it to believe it. Sony finally mastered the hologram and they made a demo by unleashing Nessy in the Tokyo Bay. A huge 15m Holographic Monster.
Get the hell out of here! no wai!!! you got to be F##king kidding me. That was amazing!
I just wished there was a better video for this demonstration...
The alternative source is a bit better.
PS4 the holonator lol
Unbelievable! Sony has some ENGINEERS!
here's the link.... http://www.core77.com/blog/...
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.
I did'nt see any continous water spray, and holograms have been around for awhile. Just never seen something done on this scale.
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?.......
that was pretty cool
Wow, Next thing you know Sony will bust out light sabers.
Too late, Soul Caliber already took that idea.
Hah I saw this earlier and thought it was posted here. Man I need one of those to scare kids away from my house. It'd also make for sexy time with the ladies, the applications of a giant hologram monster are virtually limitless!! SCEJ, SCEI, SCEA, and SCEE need to ask to borrow that for using with games. Nothing promotes games like giant hologram monsters!! Holy crap what if that were used for Resistance 2's release? Screw a gamefuel commercial, I wanna see that thing. Or a giant Solid Snake sneaking around Skyscrapers.
now we can see actual Giant Enemy Crabs! They weren't kidding when they said that. gotta love Sony, they;re [email protected] geniuses.
hahaha resistance 2 with the chimera space ship floating atop NY would scare a Sh!t load of people but in the end no such thing as bad publicity would be a sick way to promote the game
LMAO If Genji 3 is ever made they have to make a hologram Giant Enemy Crab and have Ken Kutaragi hit its weak point for massive damage. Seriously that'd be the greatest advertisement of all time, the game would probably sell 1mil copies from that alone because EVERYONE would know what it was. In any case I'm hoping they do use this thing for advertising purposes, in the days of viral and guerilla marketing there needs to be something to stand above it all about 15m and scare the s**t out of people. @sonarus I'd probably stay away from NY with that, considering things that have happened in the past the entire East Coast should be left alone. Take it to Cali, it'd be welcome there.
Wow....holograms now? Holy crap!
Wow. Not going to believe it's real until a credible news source does a story on it but damn I hope it is.
Is only the beginning.
Wow. That was the goddamn coolest thing I have ever seen in my life. Awesome.
a hologram??? they can do that? holy sh*t!!! well, thats awesome. 3d movies here we come. A movie comes to mind... "Minority Report"
why wouldn't they release a press statement? Whoever did it? it was 'Fu*****king awesome'
http://www.youtube.com/watc... I agree with skerj. They should bring this to chicago!
I'm speechless, I am without speech. I could go on and on about how I have nothing to say. And thats a crappy youtube. Imagine being there with that thing towering above you. And let me be the first to say it. PS4 holographic projector.
So we can all play that game from Star Wars "Let the wookie win"
Holographic projections isn't really that new. But to boast one as high as 15 freaking meters is ridiculous! The things you can do with that thing is just.....OMG. This video was just AMAZING! I'm glad I bought a PS3, not just for the games, not just for the videos, but to support Sony by giving them money to come up with technology this good.... I wish I had that. Scare the hell out of people at the beach.
Ok, so, I want this to be real, sooooo badly. however. I am wondering if it is the same thing that Disney does. basically they would spray water into the air so it was almost steam, and then they used it as a projector surface. now... this looks way cooler but I am hoping its not just water and a projector but an actual hologram
ah innovation. I don't know how they did it but by the looks of it, it looks like they decipated/shot water towards the sky and used the projector on the back to display the image.
Must see OMG!!!!!!
lol never gonna give, never gonna give, give you up!!
someone at sony must like the back to the future movies like i do. but that was awsome.but doesn't it look like this: MUST SEE(3:15seconds in): http://youtube.com/watch?v=... and remember when marty was playing the game in cafe 80s,and the kids said, "you got to play with your hands!?" pseye lets you not play with a controller. what will sony think of next?robot dogs?............whoops!!!... megatons keep dropping from sony. m shadow
but that doesn't really make it any less cool well a little but still a cool video.
Yeah, but that's the point. It's a projector, projecting an image in mid air.
I wonder how they'll implement this into their consumer products...if it all.
very interesting stuff there
Nothing new... Just Sony making waves as usual. When Sony does something they do something. When Nintendo does something they have to hire shady looking thugs to steal it and then do it. Big difference between Sony and other guys... Sony does. Nintendon't. Nintendo hasn't created one thing 1st... not the 1st 8 bit home system not the 1st cartridge based handheld system not the 1st 16 bit system not the 1st plat former not the 1st 3-d system not the 1st cd system Nintendo sure hasn't done much... http://blog.myspace.com/ind... http://blog.myspace.com/ind... http://blog.myspace.com/ind... That's just the beginning of my crusade against Nintendo.
FFS what is wrong with you? Did Nintendo rape you as a little child?
Technology is old, only the presentation is innovative, but also a rip off from the Back to the Future 2 :)
for keeping those meddling crime solving kids and that damn talking dog from letting you get away with your evil plans
lol. good one.
wow that was amazing im still a bit doubtful but if real kudos to sony, they could use that to promote KZ2 a big helghast ship invading earth lol!
thats amazing! wowzer!
http://www.japanprobe.com/?... I've seen something like this at Disney word...back in 99 not 3d but still very very cool if you've never seen it.
That is just completely awesome!!! ... WOW
cuz since 2006 they have been coming out with some advanced stuff
Don't get me wrong ... i like sony more than nintendo But didnt nintendo invent... Analog stick? - N64 Bumper buttons - supper nintendo Rumble pack - N64 Yea sony took them and did them better but nintendo was first. What about the light gun? And do i need to even gointo the wii controller? ok yes wii graphics blow and i wouldn't buy one for just the controller.. but nintendo invented some stuff.. Lil think called gameboy wasn't a bad idea either.
That was amazing.
Holy Crap, I want one. Lol, 3d video codecs, THATS a big file size!
That is pretty sweet.
Now they just need to find a way to implement this into gameplay. that would be insane!
this is the best video i found.
waz the best thing ive seen in a while
amazing, just amazing... wow
SONY=OWNAGE!!!, Im speechless.
that looks awesome, but my broken japanese dialect listening to this news brief blatantly says its a water screen... although I wish it wasn't... go sony though!
That was awesome!
That was sick!!!1
http://www.n4g.com/ViewComV... <- Another good 1.
The possibilities. What's next?
imagine promoting RFoM2 with that thing.....
in my home country kazakhstan it has been done since 2002 in the bay of astana, seriously.
