I guess so... I wonder if we we're suppose to know that.

I wonder if the Asgard use that same technology ;)

Here's a pic of it... but I didn't find any projector... then again I didn't find it in Atlantis either.

To me it doesn’t look as if it pointing to the wall, so it could just be part of the lighting.

I've got a bigger question... why is the screen behind the controls? At least the Asgard got the screen-in-front-of-the-controls thing down. Maybe the Ancients have eyes in that back of there heads.

If they don't need to see what they do then why do they have a screen? Answer that Mr.Normal :)

I think it's there to play tricks on the Ancient operating the controls. See, the controls to the screen are hidden somewhere so that another Ancient can put up messages behind the operator's back. That way, they can literally make fun of someone behind their back. They could also put up funny images behind the operator and take pictures of them to make it look like they're in these crazy situations.....

Hey, maybe it's supposed to be a slightly more advanced form of a weather map. The control room is really just a high-tech news/weather room.

That was great. I'd love to see hidden messages behind McKay along the lines of what someone else suggested:
"McKay, McKay, he's our man! If can't do it, Carter can!"

No, if you seek to the position of "Rising", you can see that the light beam is in syncronization with what appears on the screen. It is definitively not part of the lighting, and what appears on the semi-translucent screen is also not an special effect shot.
