    Yeah. The Gorillaz did something similar a couple of years ago.

    It's probably 2 projectors at an angle and a large plastic/glass surface. Possibly even 2 layers - glass or plastic on top of something more reflective for the 3D effect.

    EDIT: Nope. It's a mylar screen tilted at 45 degrees. Here's a demo video from AV Concepts, one of the companies that did the Tupac thing (the other company was the one that did the Gorillaz thing I posted above):

    There aren't any closeups of Pac, so I'm guessing they didn't quite get out of the valley with this. Still very cool, though.

    This one reminds me of the holographic librarian in The Time Machine. I think Arsenio Hall played him, and he would go from projection panel to projection panel as he followed Guy Pearce's character around the library.

    The Haunted Mansion has several dozen of them going at once. I want to try and do one for Halloween this year, now that I'm back in a more suburban area.
