Here you go.... (I hope you don't mind?)

And another one that shows a bit extra...

That is amazing!!! Thank you for sharing it. Dubai certainly has and is continuing to make a huge name for itself. These things look like living, breathing creatures!!!

I've heard of this, it's in Bahrain.

The way I understand it, the participants are filmed & combined with the critters on a screen. So not even really holograms, so much as a really good CGI souvenir film. Watch the peoples' gazes as they "interact", they're clearly looking at a screen to get the idea of where the "faux projections" are.

Okay, thanks and thanks for the embed.

I couldn't tell if it was holographic or something else and the link was light on information.

I would hesitate to do this with little kids, it seems like the stuff of years of nightmares.

Depends on the kid, I'd think. I'd take mine to this kind of thing in a snap, especially for the dinos. The both love animals and would think it's a cool camera trick to be on screen with these animals. One kid is a dino nut, she'd love this, it would be one of those things hard to top for her.

Hmmm........ Aren't we humans clever......
To quote a song lyric......

"........ We cut all the trees down and put one in a tree museum............. You don't know what you got till it's gone......put up another parking lot....."

The way this works is by showing the animated content superimposed on the background (filmed and analyzed by a camera) on a big screen which the participants are looking at. You can see the guy filming the video in the scene. It is therefore NOT holographic or even 3D. If you look close you will also see them all looking forward and not directly at the placements of the animals, since there is nothing to see other than ON the screen.

EDIT: Oh, sorry, this was already explained by this member:

A hologram inside a hologram. How deep down the rabbit hole?

Wow. I remember watching a show on the the science channel about 5 years ago called 2050. It was a fictional show broke down into 1 hour segments that gave a picture of the earth, related technology and such by the year 2050. It was almost told like a story with characters amd showed through the storyline the changes and interaction. Everything in the show was either being developed or in development at the time-and expected to be fully used by 2050.

One of the things was holographic imaging. In the show it was in its infancy. Basically a still image projected in a cloud of material. Obviously the episode showed a far more adavanced version in 2050. This wasn't supposed to be anywhere near perfection until then.

Now here we are 5 years later and it looks almost near perfection. As most of the things they showed in the series are. Imagine another 35 years from now.

Still so crazy to see this.

the fact that Saudi Arabia has one of these and Disney world doesn't makes me sad...I guess they are spending too much on making comic book and harry potter theme rides to make room for a virtual zoo. maybe they have one in one of those top-dollar VIP attractions in las vegas haha.

You are good for an entertaining post SingalFire - this is pretty awesome. Impressive stuff they're doing with holo these days.

Can't wait to have one in my living room

I really am looking forward to the day when these things become tangible, rather than superimposed after the event. It'd be absolutely awesome (although I have to say that even if I knew the Tyrannosaurus Rex wasn't real but I could physically see a full size one in front of me, I'd probably still want to run away). Cool post though!
