3D Monster in Japan

In order to promote a monster movie, Sony used a spray of water to serve as a backdrop for a 3D monster rising out of Tokyo bay. Even though it's monotone, it still looks really good. Well, for a monster, that is. Holograms are an interesting bit of science especially in the recording/playback and yet they are used in many practical ways, from the shiny dove on your credit card sticker (ok, Mom and Dad's credit card) to the security label in some currencies including the Canadian $5 and larger bills.
