    only practical use I can see is for it to be displayed as a piece of Artwork. Would look cool, but that's about it.

    "3D" hologram-like displays have been projected onto water vapour mist before, I guess the new thing with this is the timed droplet layers... I can see it in displays at CES etc but no real practical use in the home... just a really good way to catch legionairs

    I could definitely see this being used at concerts, tech expos and the like. Other than that i don't think it has much potential.

    On the video there are three layers, but couldn't you in principal increase the number of layers sufficiently to produce an image of an object in three dimensions?

    i like the idea of having it drip/screen anywhere as long as there is a drain close!
