In the Future, Every Famous Person Will Be a Hologram for 15 Minutes

Can you imagine? According to the people at Musion Technology, the good folks who resurrected Tupac in hologram form at this year’s Coachella Festival, they’ll be bringing back many other dearly departed celebs. Jimi Hendrix, anyone? (Yes!) Elvis? (Not so much.) This could be the start of a disturbing trend….sorta cool, but no doubt extremely spooky. (Although the image of R2D2 and Tupac together is priceless.) Celebrity Holograms of the Future

FOR GEEKS ONLY:
Believe it or not, the FX studio that actually created the Tupac hologram, Digital Domain Media Group, is the same studio created by ‘Avatar’ and ‘Titanic’ filmmaker James Cameron to do cutting edge visual effects. (DDMG seamlessly turned Brad Pitt into a shriveled crone in ‘The Curious Case of Benjamiin Button.’) Just think: they might soon be bringing Whitney Houston or Kurt Cobain back to life on a stage near you.
