I doubt if this really is a hologram. I'd have to be there to know what it really looks like. It appears to be a flat screen which presents a
stereoscopic image without the need for special glasses. I doubt if the image is suspended in mid air so you can walk around it, like in some sci-fi
movies. There are currently several types of stereographic imaging competing for the market. Unfortunately, they are all billed as holographic instead
of adopting a list different names for different technologies.
Marketers like to use the term "holographic" to sell anything that is stereographic. A real hologram has resolution at the wavelength of the laser
light in which it is viewed, and it has parallax when you shift your viewpoint up or down as well as sideways.
I agree that this is not added security. It's just an excuse to divert €1,000,000 from the airport's security budget, instead of hiring better
qualified security personnel and dogs.
