How CNN’s Hologram Interview System Works

Last night, CNN debuted its latest ultra-high-tech gizmo: a “hologram” interview system that allows Star Wars-like images of distant people to appear on stage, interacting with the CNN host. Now, it turns out that the “hologram” isn’t actually visible to the host (it’s composited into the image you see at home by a computer), but it’s still pretty neat.

 

Gizmodo tells us how it works HERE.

 

Below is a video of Will.i.am appearing “live via hologram” in the system’s first use.
