This has too much potential for abuse. Imagine beaming images into someone's eyes while he/she is operating heavy equipment or controlling a vehicle - or luring somebody into harm's way. Fortunately, there are bound to be countermeasures.

Unfortunately tech companies (etc) regularly patent things not because they are possible or because they are working on them but for other reasons (eg: to profit if someone works it out, to block others from developing things, as wild "just in case we need it in 30 years", etc). Just registering a patent means almost nothing about the future chance of things happening. Because the patent system is broken.

I'm living on the US east coast, and I have many family members living back west, in South Dakota, that are pro-gun. Occasionally, the "Swiss-Stat" comes up, ie: the high rate of gun ownership. But they never talk about the training. To get a hunting permit in SDak, it requires a very short course - mine was 1-2 hours when I was only 14 years old. To become weapons trained in the USAF, I went through a weeks of training and qualification, mainly in the handling of the firearm so I didn't accidentally injure myself or others. But it's usually (not always) the family members with zero military service, and next-to-zero training, that are the most pro-gun. I have no reason to own one, so I don't have any.

We used to have those places where you paid a small fee to go in and break stuff with a sledgehammer to relieve stress. This sounds like the lazy man's version.

Looks like I could stick my hand through the bottom and be able to catch a falling plate.
Maybe I should go there and try! Checking ... Err, no. At almost $5,000 and 30 hours of travel to fly to Xi'an it's rather out of my league. (I honestly didn't expect it to be *that* expensive.)
