This video is showing the visible light. There are several examples of it within the video. One of them is using ionized gases in test tubes and lighting them up which then causes different light. Another is using 3D glasses and then shining light through it which then projects the ‘rainbow’ looking light onto a surface. There are many different ways to project visible light, it could be as complex as ionized gasses or as simple as
