This looks very scientific/sci-fiy can just picture it animated - closing down on the hologram when not in use anymore.
Looks Awesome! :D The panels and additional metal plates add to it and really give it that Sci-Fi feel (almost like a tardis! ) and im loving the hologram! :) although the top of the machine looks very soft and its very bottom heavy. Perhaps consider adding something to the centre of the top disk? Also check perspective for the top disk, are those further plates the other side or on top? The former possibly wouldn't be seen if your horizon line is centralised? Hope this helps! :D
in basic terms - Yes! :)
