First came webinars and videoconferencing, and now, coming “live” to meetings and conventions: holograms.
Developers of holographic display are working on a technology that will let speakers and performers deliver speeches and entertain an audience without being there. They’ll do it via hologram video projection, in which a filmed performance is presented in a live, 3-D image — like Princess Leia’s message to Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars.
In January, the music group Black Eyed Peas performed holographically at an awards show in France. Two small airports in Britain — Manchester and London Luton— have holographic images of staffers explaining security clearance rules. Others to appear via hologram technology in recent years: Former vice president Al Gore, Microsoft founder Bill Gates and British airline and media mogul Richard Branson.
The technology is the latest step in the “telepresence” evolution that’s changing the meetings and conventions industry.
Presenting holographic images of static objects isn’t new. But several companies — including Britain-based Musion, Austin-based Zebra Imaging, Hungary-based Holografika and a collaborative venture between researchers from the University of Arizona and California-based Nitto Denko Technical — have begun developing a technology to project live images that are streamed through the Internet for 3-D viewing without the need for 3-D glasses.
The technology is in its infancy and has limitations, including high cost and elaborate setup. Musion says a simple setup can cost $20,000 to $30,000, which is more than a first-class round-trip airline ticket for a live appearance.
But its potential has intrigued industries that could benefit from high-end, interactive display, ranging from medicine to education, as well as keynote convention speakers, concert-givers and even online dating services.

The Bible warns us several times about the Anti-Christ, and God’s Word goes further than that, explaining to us the Mark of The Beast. There is a time coming shortly where a choice will have to be made; take the mark, or die. If the mark is taken, this will be unforgivable, and you will suffer eternally for your choice.
Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666.
If the mark is not taken, you will most likely be killed. But do not fret, to be murdered as a believer in Jesus Christ is a wonderful thing, because the Bible tells us our reward will be great in heaven. Jesus Christ is the Only One That Saves, and is Coming Soon.
20And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
