    Pepper's Ghost / Projection surface ?

    Some films or surfaces might have optical qualities where extreme angles result in different chromatic or spectral effects (some thicknesses and refractive indexes may cause light to bounce off both the first surface and the second surface, creating rainbow edges or blurry images), but the main...
