    So it's the same thing as Holotoy [kode80.com], which has been out since slightly after the iPhone 4 release? This isn't new, the only story here is that it's on the iPad.

    Now Holotoy's effect isn't perfect, and the larger screen may help. I would be interested in seeing this in person, but it's not unique.

    Wow, why did they modded you offtopic? Because it wasn't an apple product? They have done this with wiimotes, webcams. But this one has to be front paged because it was "on an iPad"? (and because it has been sometime without an Apple story?)

What is worth doing is worth the trouble of asking somebody to do.
