Last Night's CNN Hologram Technology: Freaky and Amazing

Shared by Moah

Matrix-ish? I don’t know my sci fi movies that well. Off to look for the youtube clip of this.

During last night’s election coverage, I found myself bouncing around from high-def channel to high-def channel, seeing what ABC, CNN, Fox, and MSNBC had to offer. I already knew that CNN correspondent John King would be showcasing election news from the high-tech Multi-Touch Collaboration Wall, but I had no idea CNN would take their techiness to the next level.

Were you as shocked as I was when they showed correspondent Jessica Yellin in “hollographic 3D form?” Turns out this impressive technology was made possible by Vizrt and SportVu with the help of 44 HD cameras and 20 computers. The A+ geekiness award definitely went to CNN last night!

Did you happen to see it in action? What would you think if they used “virtual” correspondents regularly?
