    Missed opportunity. Instead of the TIE fighter, they should've used either the wireframe Death Star, and explained where the exhaust port was, or they should've used Leia telling Ben that he's her only hope.

    Impressive indeed!

    If Blackberrys are addictive cellphones, Channel9 is the ultimate addictive website.

    It's just a spinning mirror. Don't see what the big deal is.

    Just like how in the 1920s "TV" was just a scanning electron beam.

    It's the principle: they've made a volumetric 3D "image", made even more beautiful because the mechanics are so simple.

    Like TV moved from a scanning electron beam to LCDs, and carts moved from horses to the internal combustion engine, this is the first implementation of a means of displaying a 3D image. 100 years down the line we'll have better ways of doing it, but acheiving the same effect.

    well in the early days of TV invertion they had a rotating disk but it was not practicle... to big and for a decent sized image the disk had to spin to fast...

    sure this "mirror trick" is kinda cool.... but I do not see it as really helping with a "real" holographic system...

    as a novelty it's ok.

    They really could sell this to bigger stores - it could be used to show products on display windows or they could just put on some animation to attract customers. There's some big money to be collected. Wink
