CNN’s Hologram

While watching my fifth hour of CNN election coverage last night, I was BLOWN AWAY by the advanced technology the station was using. They had a giant interactive wall that seemed to work like a mega-Iphone.

But more importantly, they HOLOGRAMED people in. I doubt that’s a verb, but it should be. For example, Will.I.Am was in Chicago at the Obama rally, but was beamed in for an interview with Anderson Cooper (see video below). Just like Star Trek/ Wars. Who knew we had come so far.

  1. I thought it was incredibly cool, but not terribly newsy. How exactly does a hologram help convey “news” in a way that a standard split screen wouldn’t? Especially considering part of the interview had to be devoted to discussing how neat the technology was itself.
