    Okay, so, you need a VCR, then that`s wired to a projector, then that projects toward a screen of condensed air. Hmmm, how about just get a TV? Just a bit more clear and cost a helluva lot less. Or am I missing something? Prolly am, eh?

    heres how they should have made it.

    they should have made the air flow through two panes of glass or plastic or something transparent-but-stable, so that the air wouldn`t `flutter,` but rather be almost as high a quality as a monitor/tv.

    still, it must be very entertaining to shoot stuff through Dr. No and other awesome characters like that.

    That`d be cool if it looked like a screen and not blurred every 2 seconds.

    I still cant figure out why we`d pay so much for air being shot out of a vent with light being thrown on it. I guess your not supposed to use logic when buying stuff, but reguardless that is a pretty damn cool concept

    to add on to what i said earlier, maybe you could attach the two panes so you could either play with the image or watch it clearly w/o it getting messed up by anything.

    Yes the image quality is rubbish, but have you ever seen early TV images? Quality was terrible on the mechanical TVs but the rich bought them which funded development in TV to what you have today. It will get better and cheaper.

    an interactive feauture WOULD be cool.

    i don`t see how it would work though... seeing how it`s just on condensed air. you can still interact with the things but they`d have no reaction. hahh

    but i think by itself, it`s pretttty cool anyway. snazzy ;-)

    what is wrong with you people? sure it sucks now but what of the potential?? 10 years this technology could be amazing and perhaps a little longer it could become the norm. cant you see that? seriously.

    as someone else mentioned, try watching one of the first tvs, that would annoy the hell out of you. however those first tvs have evolved into HD technology, possibly the pinacle of current technology, this is the next step in entertainment.

    The image quality is nothing but CRAP. it`s EXTREMELY over-priced, and I hope and pray to the Lord Jesus Christ that doesn`t become mainstream, otherwide I`m gonna kill myself. This is another example of how we sacrifice quality for the latest trend. Betamax videocassettes were 10 times better than VHS. Betamax video and sound quality is comaprible to DVD, but the cheap, inferior VHS videotapes made it, do you know why, because they were NEWER!! Also, I NEVER recall any of my audio cassettes getting ruined just by ONE fingerprint. drating CDs.

    AND drat1NG CENSORSHIP!!!

    ok ok ok, I`m going to ask you all to look into the future. If this evolved into something better, smalled, and less costly, you will probably own one. Unless you`re stubborn. This is actually very cool, and shows some nice advancement into technology.

    ------------joke----------
    my studies have shown that the price will actually drop significantly within 14.5 years.

    I`d price it that high if I made one of those. Why? People will buy them, just like the ps3.
    The price will drop, in about 15 years ;)
    Watch, someone`s guna say `nuh uh! 14.5 years!`

    Actually, my sources (infinitely more accurate than AwayFromMe`s) indicate that it will actually be roughly 14.397 years.
