Rainbow-colored image of a cable car slowly moving among a group of people in San Francisco; when viewer stands to right of hologram, the trolley is shown facing the viewer; when the viewer moves to left, the trolley slowly turns so that by the time the viewer reaches the far left of hologram, its side is visible; as viewer moves to left, people are also shown walking closer to the foreground.
