Spouting about the Winter Olympics opening

Watching the spectacular Winter Olympics opening ceremony today, it struck me how well they used projected lighting effects to convey very different terrains.  I wonder if there is any scope for inventing something like that for a wargames table?!

Imagine moving your troops across a projected field of waving wheat.  Or through a forest projected onto ribbons.  Or even a sea battle in which a pod of whales break the water and spout?

Animated whales swim across the floor of the stadium. Imagine this effect on a wargames table for a naval battle! Picture sourced from: http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2010/02/gallery-winter-olympics-opening-ceremony.html
