The Heliodisplay

Thanks to Rhys. K. for sending me a link about the Heliodisplay, a holographic image generator. Here's the spicy part:
Amazingly, the machine can take input from just about any video source, such as TV, DVD or even video game systems can be interfaced to view the image in free space.

The Holodeck moves one step closer.

What's also interesting is that this machine is cheap (relatively)--around $18,600. That's a price breakthrough for this sort of technology.

Here's the link (with pictures):

And here's a link to IO2Technology:
The "demo with different lighting and backgrounds" video is pretty spectacular.
