Did You See This?

Well it’s been a little bit since the election and, what can I say, I’ve been in denial. The one cool thing about election night was the CNN holograms used for interviewing different people! I guess they set up something like 35-40 high definition cameras to stream a life three dimensional image of the person being interviewed right into the newsroom with the reporter! This image was made to look exactly like the real person with proper colors and size.

All I can say is I can’t wait for this to be used for telecommunications in the homes. As I’m sure you’re well aware, the airline industries can’t stand the thought of this! It would so save me in flights to Washington State when I want to see my godson, Daniel, and the rest of his family. Or imagine if your college professor gave his lecture in your living room so you didn’t have to go to class! Or better yet, how cool would it be if you could project an entire football game at a local arena so that you could see your favorite team play for a quarter the cost?! Oh yeah, and who would really need 3D glasses at the movies ever again?

Here’s another picture; this one is of the “behind the scenes” area where the person is getting interviewed. And be sure to go to Youtube and check out some of the vids!

Oh yeah, they made some obvious references to Star Trek in the technology!
