if they'd had this technology 15 years ago we could've been saved from some really terrible posthumous videos with a toon pac:

Are there videos of hologram Nate Dogg? I feel like he got shafted :(

mh, Monday, 16 April 2012 15:10 (2 years ago) Permalink

i wonder if they purposely looked for a clip to hologramize where his pants werent too large so as not to offend current sensibilities

oh god i forgot there was a claymation pac too

some dude, Monday, 16 April 2012 15:12 (2 years ago) Permalink

they should bring all the digital pacs together for one incredible once in a lifetime concert experience

Check this one out.

It almost looks like Celine Dion is really there.

this technology could also be used to create 'rock n roll heaven' w/ all the dead classic rock dudes jamming, boomers would pay good money to see that

For the very first time, I wish I had been there at Coachella, mad lifted.

figure this will happen on at least some scale, but that no one will really care. maybe holo-beatles could be a thing? figure the big money is in simulcasting "event" concerts featuring tween stars like beiber and the jonas brothers, or whatever the equivalent is these days.

I kind of feel like I'll just have enough money in my estate to pay for a 3d model of me, but they won't have enough money for animation so it'll just be my likeness performing Tupac songs with his voice

i saw this and it was amazing, but hard to get a feel for how it was in person, given that i was watching it in 2-D. i guess i sort of just doubt this is an actual hologram? don't you need to use some crazy 3-D capture camera technology to make a hologram? you can't just extrapolate a hologram from video footage

(i realize there is probably a listicle that explains all this)

TracerHandVEVO (Tracer Hand), Monday, 16 April 2012 15:41 (2 years ago) Permalink

if it were a hologram you'd be able to move from side to side and see a different angle of tupac, but no such luck

mh, Monday, 16 April 2012 15:42 (2 years ago) Permalink

they can make 3d movies from 2d movies, like u dont see pac from all angles, just front on but he looks a lil popping out

lag∞n, Monday, 16 April 2012 15:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

you can't just extrapolate a hologram from video footage

This pretty much looks like a 3d computer model of Tupac which could be kind of like a hologram, but you'd have to be able to actually pan around. Everyone there saw the same angle, no matter which side of the stage they were on. He just probably looked kind of distorted.

For a really-real hologram, they'd have had to capture him using a camera that picked up all available light etc etc and it'd have to be video of him from life

Robert Forrester and Leonard Cohen are both still alive, so it can't be them.

I have this image of the unused Tupac hologram just sitting slouched on a box in some warehouse now, blinking his eyes or exhaling condensation at programmed intervals

Poor Frank Zappa isn't even allowed in, he has to stand on a ladder and look in through a boxy window.

8 months pass...

Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson have apparently been singing their duet to holograms of each other. I guess how effective it looks depends on where you're sitting, but it is kinda funny to hear the crowd go apeshit in this video, right around :30 or so.

How long before a commercial model? Like in 5 years can I just download the Beatles and have them play at my bbq?

Emperor Cos Dashit (Adam Bruneau), Tuesday, 4 June 2013 21:02 (1 year ago) Permalink

it's basically just a projector + a reflective surface + an appropriate transparent surface on which to project it (the illusion is pepper's ghost, what a lot of magicians use). like, the setup is of course not trivial but i suppose ppl could be having the beatles play their bbq right now if they wanted
