3D Holographic Prints

At AU, I met a gentlemen in the R&D lounge who presented me with a 24" x 24" hologram. His company is called Zebra imaging.
What I was drawn to was that it contained 3D hologram of the Seattle waterfront. He pulled out a few other holograms one being a "multi-phase" hologram of a process plant with one phase showing internal equipment, and the second phase showing internal equipment that housed the equipment. A 90 rotation of the hologram switched the phase.

While an impressive technology that is a less expensive alternative to a rugged laptop and navisworks in the field, it is a static model that is void of the "I" in this whole process we call BIM.
