Interactive 3D Display

I suppose “smoke and mirrors” isn’t exactly how this 3D effect is created – but it’s not entirely inaccurate either.  Using a combination of cold fog and a laser projector the makers of DisplAir can achieve a decent looking and interactive 3D projection system. 1 The implication I find the most interesting is the possibility of an interactive 3D display for use with 3D modelling.  Such a system would seem like it could be a very intuitive way for anyone to design 3d models.
