    Fascinating ! :smile:
    BTW, it's also intresting to see the way the article's
    written. It's history in the making - a reporter
    making skeptic comments about a future technology
    of huge potential - which is abvious to anyone
    with even a tiny sense of futuristic and technological
    vision. They wrote the same things about the automobile,
    the telephone, Goddard's research, computers, Internet
    and practicly any other great new technology.
    People's lack of vision, technological and scientific
    conservatism and pure stupidity can sometimes reach
    amazing levels.

    Live long and prosper.

    That is awesome. I was a lil bothered by the attitude as well. But that just shows you that technology scares people.

    I'm confused a bit though. If it uses a water vapor to project the images, will it not soak the area nearby the device? If they get those things down to a reasonable price, I believe they'd replace the television.

    You can see this technology first hand by going to the Disney/MGM Studios at Walt Disney World in FL. They have a show called Fantasmic every night at the closing of the park. They show animated movies right on waterfalls during the show. It is quite breathtaking. My advise is to get there an hours early or you won't get a seat, it fills up fast.

    I think thats a similar concept, but not quite the same method. Doesn't that just use a projector screen?

    The screen is actually cascading water. I could be wrong about it being the same technology, but I am sure there are no projector screens, just shooting water.

    my bad, I didn't mean to say screen, should have just left it at projector.
