    It isnt a hologram, but a water screen with video projection from what i can tell, i think it looks pretty cool. Didnt see any lasers either.

    They use this same technology (water screen + video projection) at Disney's MGM studios - at the "Fantasmic" outdoor theater that has the big show at night. Pretty cool stuff, but no lasers...

    So am I the only one who, when I first saw the video above, and realized it was running in Japan, thought it would be insanely funny to yell "Godzilla!"???

    (I'm going to hell, aren't I?)

    has anybody ever made one of these screens? I would be interested in having a go at making one.

    As far as I can see, A high power water pump and a spray head ?

    Any Ideas?

    fast high volume pump and a spinning nozzle. Well part of the nozzel spins, That looks like one of Sandor Holly's rigs.

    Sea World of Ohio (Rest In Peace) had one.

    Haha.. i live in Anaheim, and they do it at Disneyland in well. It bugs me that the Disneyland employee's describe it as a "laser light show on water" although, there aren't any lasers.. oh well.. people are just misinformed I guess. My mother calls all my lights/scanners/projectors/moving heads "lasers"...
