An android touches the stars

by Critical Commons Manager

In Prometheus, memory images are documented and replayed as if they were volumetric point clouds captured by a Kinect sensor. In this scene, massive 3D holographic displays depict the next generation in celestial mapping technologies with fully interactive holograms that may be controlled by lifelike androids. Dazzling visual effects sequences like this one unfortunately fail to make up for the surprisingly uninspired filmmaking that mars the rest of the film, making it useful primarily as a series of design fiction technology demos.
