Most sensible people will stay away.

I actually helped stage this system at our home office in Iowa, for a "see, it works" demo for the SGI guys involved in the install. It was pretty neat. We didnt get to see the mummy demo, but we did some other demos on the screen (a visualization of the perfect storm weather pattern) and it was pretty cool. And a pita to get the projectors aligned (at this site there are 3 projs from left eye images, 3 for right, stacked and they have to overlap pixel perfect). If you have the chance to go see it, I suggest you do it while you can. Apparently this exhibit will only be up for about 9 months.
