Dear World: Time to get on the hologram bandwagon
Yes, this letter goes out to errrrryone. Including you. You were the 2006 Person of the Year, right? So your opinion counts. After Hologram Tupac performed at Coachella, I realized that this best of old-school technology is woefully underutilized. And it’s time for everyone to do something about it.
Obviously, this should be used for more concert tours. Hologram Tupac cost $100K-$400K to create. That’s about what many Top 40 acts get paid per show. Promoters – it’s time to bring in the big bucks. Charge exorbitant ticket prices for a ‘performer’ who has no rider, private jet, bodyguards, tour bus or groupies. Just pay a one-time licensing fee and…BALLIN’!
Next – news. Are CNN, MSNBC, Fox News and Current 2.0 doing anything productive? While old-time radio might have had the right idea, holograms can save 24 hour news. This Presidential election will be covered by…Hologram Walter Cronkite.
Then there’s fashion. Remember Hologram Kate Moss? Supermodels can eat again! Just have your 19-year-old body work the catwalk.
Finally – real life. Why stalk your ex? Make a hologram. Are you Black and need to hail a cab/go on a job interview/apply for a loan/in the vicinity of the NYPD? White doppelgänger hologram to the rescue!
Look World, hologram technology is more than just an excuse to charge $20 to watch a 15 year old movie by retrofitting it with 3D. This is Twitter in real life; let your hologram go out into the world while you kick it with iPad, Blackberry and ‘em.
