Charles Highgrove Hologram in Abu Dubai

Charlie HologramCould this be the future of video-conferencing?

Charlie recently delivered a pre-recorded speech on the environment as a hologram in a Star Wars stylee to an Abu Dubai audience using only a single camera and projector. 

The techs from British firm Musion were able to employ a century-old trick known as “Pepper’s ghost” to record the Prince of Wales speak at Highgrove last year and then rebroadcast the performance as a way to congratulate the Middle Eastern country on its plans to build a zero carbon city.

Environmentalists note that this method reduces the amount of fuel wasted on transporting celebrities around the world but this does mean that all such venues will have to have this gear before a decent dent is made.
