I guess this would count as CG News.

Not the Heliodisplay as mentioned in a previous thread.

Apparently this works by using infrared pulsed laser beams to create tiny little balls of plasma.


Still very primitive, but interesting, none the less.

That is amazing... So they are able to project 3D dot arrays in actual life? Well, its a first step to a 3D world of computer graphics. Awesom!

Another interesting "images in the air" concept of a few years back, when the band U2 were putting together the stage design, etc... for the PopMart Tour. They did some experiments in developing very large "beachball" like devices which the audience would bounce around and the live footage from the concert cameras was somehow projected onto the surface of the "beachballs". The idea was to have a bunch of these "videoballs" getting bounced around the audience, but it proved to be too expensive.

cool stuff though.

Wow, that does look very cool! but isn't plasma super heated gas? each one of those dots could have a temperature of a few thousand degrees!
