        lmao, that was sweet. I am wondering if those renderings were made with 3d studio vis.

          The thing with the rose is what got me. I didn't even think it was fake until he mentioned it. I can't think of any good uses for it beyond awards shows and concerts, but it is still freakin' sweet.

            Use digital art like this in real time and make it appear that some important figure in the world is holding a sign that reads one thing, when in reality it reads another-- consider how false stories without images or sound have been reported by the news with disasterous results of violence and rioting.

            Make changes in movies even cheaper. There is no need to rent objects for movies, and if you happen to not like the size of an object that is interacting with your actors, then you change it, post production.

            Instead of actors trying to interact with something that is not "there" they can act however they want, and the environment changes to them instead of the other way round.

            I see tremendous risk for abuse with this technology. :-)

              Something like this was in "Wag the Dog." A girl ran through some blocks and the edited the scen to be a war zone and have her carrying a calico cat.

              I guess those days are here.

                I was watching a History Channel special about camouflage last night and they talked about how the military in the past has made dummy towns, bridges, tanks, planes etc etc. I assume they could use technology like this to do all sorts of crazy stuff.

                The Secret Service could have a setup so if someone tried to harm the President they could do stuff like have several 'Presidents' running in different directions to confuse the perportrator to which one was real (like when Bruce Lee was fighting Han in the room of mirrors in Enter the Dragon).

                For more commercial applications, billboards could get really interesting.

                  I'm pretty sure that this is all done digitally (although it didn't let me get all the way through the video). In other words, your idea would only work if someone were to attempt an assassination via television.

                    The best dummy town ever made that is still used today I think would have to be the "Hogan's Alley Complex" located on the United States Marine Corps Base in Quantico, Virginia

                    The Hogans Alley facades are primarily used for FBI and DEA New Agent Training, while behind the facades are fully functioning classrooms, audiovisual facilities, storage areas, and administrative and maintenance offices
