Some sensational updates to the post yesterday on the 3D holographic resurrection of Tupac: it’s not a hologram at all, but a very sophisticated 2D projection. Still an incredible effect, but no R2D2 / Princess Leah show just yet.
However, tucked away at the bottom of a Wall Street Journal article on the subject, which Kevin posted in a comment yesterday, comes the following intriguing statement from the company responsible for the Tupac show:
Mr. Smith said the company has used the same technology to resurrect several late executives.
“We’ve brought past CEOs and things that like that back to life,” Mr. Smith said, without getting more specific, citing non-disclosure agreements.
OK PEOPLE, YOU HEARD IT HEAR FIRST: STEVE JOBS IS STILL RUNNING APPLE…. AS A HOLOGRAM!
