It is 7:15 pm EST on Tuesday night, election night of 2008. CNN just introduced Hologram Technology by beaming Jessica Yellin live from Chicago at Hyde Park at Obama's campaign party headquarters. She is having a conversation with Wolf Blitzer. Pretty amazing how clear and life like she is. First time to ever use Hologram Technology on Live TV. Reminds me of Princess Leah from Star Wars when she was beamed through R2D2 to Luke Skywalker with a special message. Wolf is already making jokes about hologramming in Roland Martin in the future- Wolf is a prankster!
What is ironic about this.... our team just visited with a local company here in Atlanta today about hologram technology, and how we might use it in the future with events.
In retrospect, we wanted to use Hologram Technology this past year at Catalyst, but it is tough to pull off in a 360 stage setup. We'll see what happens in the future.
