What would you expect to see? It`s a pretty cheap structure and only holds one purpose....honestly, what could you expect? And furthermore, how does my last post indicate that I look at myself as more intelligent than other people? I believe that that kind of arrogance only, as you say, hurts a person. I was merely stating that this is the first real instance that holograms have been used and that it was a major development. You are correct, holograms are a pretty basic technology that could be utilized anywhere. But it isn`t used anywhere. Please keep in mind that my posts aren`t meant to contradict anyone. I simply enjoy speaking with you people.

"Doesn`t hold any functional differences!" I don`t think the *cube* is directly responisble for the holograms. Holograms could be put anywhere, I wanna know what the cube can do that nothing else can. please learn to understand before erupting, never assume you`re smarter than other people, it`ll just hurt you

Mike! Doesn`t hold any functional differences! How about the fact that there will be holographic projections? I know that it doesn`t seem like a big deal considering the sci-fi crap we watch now-a-days, but when was the last time you saw an actual hologram? NEVER...I`d buy the admission ticket just to see what a real one would look like.

Kinda of looks like a pointless structure to me. Basically a giant glass stadium. Doesn`t seem to hold any functional differences. Boring

It`s a swimming center. What was with the holographic image? I wonder if it will really utilize holographics to provide the viewers with info. Yellow, the US is building it. Search for it on google and an article states that it will cost the US $100 million dollars to build.
