Putting together something more in-depth now but if you have not already seen this, you need to watch it NOW. If you are easily offended, be warned that this is a rap performance with tons of profanity. Tons.
Bottom line is that at the Coachella Festival yesterday (Sunday April 15, 2012), a headline performance by Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre included an appearance by Tupac Shakur. Tupac has been dead since 1996. It’s a hologram. This tech has been used to bring cartoon bands to life, but this is the first time we have seen it used on a real person. And the detail is nothing short of stunning. More details on how it came together are forthcoming. You have to check this out.
