Walk Through Screen

Formally called wave (Walk-Thru Virtual Environment), the Walk-Thru Fog Screen is a thin veil of fog and a non-turbulent airflow that protects it from disruption. The result is a relatively crisp screen surface ready for your projection needs.

Imagine having to walk through an advertisement before entering a store... that should capture your attention. [via /. ]

Yeah, I can see all kinds of potential for something like this for installation artists (as well as advertisers, gamers, etc, etc). The pictures on their webpage also look surprisingly clear for something projected onto fog.

I just realized that I forgot to give the reference, so people can see the threads there. When I get a break from work, I'll add it.

I saw this in operation at SIGGRAPH a couple of weeks ago -- and it's really wild. The only downside at the moment is that the overhead screen (between the fog jets and the fog itself) had to be dried fairly frequently, as condensation formed on it...

The website indicates that the "advanced prototype works fine" - so hopefully they fixed the problem!
