    Looks like they use a bunch of closely placed sheets to help with that.
    There are coming soon, linticular sheets, so I can see depth of parallax going up.

    I heard from someone I trust with their opinion and they said it looked pretty real in person

    Err, yes... So much so that they have their own 'holographic' pop star who apparently regularly does sell out shows... And we thought X Factor were the kings of manufactured pop rubbish

    For the best of "real holography" in 2013, consider a meter sized glass display cube on a pedestal. There is a single tiny light source on the ceiling aimed toward each of the four faces, like in a museum. The objects inside are in full color as expected of "real" things. How do you know the objects inside that cube have mass? You can't. The walls of the cube are holograms.

    But there are some very interesting things an artist could do with subjects in a cube like that. Combine that with other projection tricks like the Pepper's Ghost. That's potential, but the reality is a box the size of a breadbox with a freakin' real image inside, using LED and/or despeckled laser light for illumination and the best full color recording materials available today. Throw the budget of a very large sculpture, or a reasonable film at it and one would probably make a splash as big as the Tupac nologram.

    It looks like they have a very short distance to do the focussing, so could this make spatial filters more compact?

    [edit] It would make graphics lasers absolutely spot on - being able to focus and de-focus the beam to different sizes. Divergence modulation if you like. [/edit]
