It is awesome to see this stuff finally getting there. This "holographic" Vocaloid concert is worth admiring as well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTXO7KGHtjI&fmt=37

Now imagine a 3D holographic life sized display that ties into virtual worlds in real time with user generated content and things will be great.

The Hatsume Miku Vocaloid hologram concerts selling out to thousands made it onto the Fox News Network Morning Show this morning.

I guess one could call that perhaps the most successful mixed reality events to date.

Clearly people want this type of entertainment.

Full-color, high-quality, commercial-grade holography is pretty exciting. Making it interactive? That's going to take some ingenuity. This is a static rendering in 3D. Making it move is going to require some serious materials-science mojo.
