CNN uses fake holograms to celebrate the election

by Mike Miner Wednesday November 5, 2008

I trust most of you saw this:


So, they made a tent filled with cameras surrounding the speaker so they could make it look like a fuzzy purple version of them was talking to Wolf Blitzer and Anderson Cooper from about fifteen feet away in the studio. It's kinda cool (but not a real hologram, because there was nothing projected in the studio - the two video streams were basically spliced together, which probably explains why the hosts went nowhere near these apparitions), but certainly more distracting than a talking head in a box.
Any thoughts? Like it? Love it? Not impressed?
