Holographic technology brings the dead back to life

For creative people holographic technology opens doors to lots of interesting possibilities.

Something slightly different than my usual posts.  On the rare occasion technology leaves me stunned, and the attempt to bring back to life the deceased rapper Tupac Shakur was one of those moments.

A 3D hologram was taken from a 2D image of Tupac Shakur, and then projected onto a stage at the 2012 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Annual Festival.  The hologram performed alongside Dr. Dre and Snoop Dog.

Caution: there is swearing in this video!
