Yeps, I've already check these pictures... It looks like he tried to reproduce the display (360┬░ panorama vision) of the famous GH-28 model (Galaxian┬│ for 28 players, see here), but I don't really understand which source has been used for this test? I would say he used one static picture, that one  :arrow:



...and display that picture, divided by 16 and projected into that 360 concave lens/mirror, and this is the result  :arrow:



Maybe some Japanese Galaxian┬│ experts here may translate 'that experiment' in English?  ;)

Sorry to bump this topic, but wow where did he get that such monstrous laserdisc?  :shock: I'd love to see that such monster into the computer. Idk what has happened to it now,  but this is monstrously awesome, having this 28-player galaxian 3.Now I'd die to see that one ;D by the way where'd he get that laserdisc?

He didn't.
This is a still, most likely posted by Namco to show the 16-screen tech. A laserdisc may not even truly still exist, but reconstruction from what we have may be possible. However, it would most likely not be like the original.

Darn. I didn't know that. So the laserdisc still only belongs to namco :( so this is all what's left. We can save galaxian 3 theater 6 but we can't save gh28 nor gh16. How very tragic and sad.

I might be wrong but according to google translate, one japanese member (I can't believe I quickly forgot his name) was allowed to show the 28 player version once at the arcade museum on somewhat galaxian3 20th anniversary, 2010. I could be wrong though.

Just saw the video showing the entire laserdiscs video of galaxian 3 attraction at nicovideo. Not good quality and too dark but here's the link:
