I don't see this as impossible. Thats how quartz displays work. Just a matter of time before a color quartz type display is invented, if its not already sitting in a lab somewhere.

That is purely awesome! I love it!

Smart way to do it too, I never would have thought about doing that.

:confused:

is it truly transparent? Or is the background set very cleverly to match the PB's behind? :D

Wow, if that were true I really foresee a lot of useful applications, suddenly we are one step closer to the world of scifi

It was merely a video trick, using keying to replace the green background with video of the wall.

Did he take the back off the screen so the light shines through?:D

Digital trickery, yes. He made his desktop background green and used After Effects to composite the background plate, and used tracking points to match the dimensions of the PB screen. Similar, no doubt, to the HP photo commercials.

You can tell from the reflection of the CD hanging on the wall. :D

I don't understand this - it turns up one day as a thread for Digital Video and now its in another thread, with a title claiming its real?
