Star Wars Style Hologram on CNN's Election Lineup

For those of you that missed it (myself included), CNN developed and ran a hologram rendering, real-time, of a correspondent in a remote location and merged it with a newsroom rendering during the election night broadcast.

What's cool about this is we've been watching this technology in the movies since, oh, 1977 with EP IV, A New Hope. But to actually implement it and during the election night broadcast of all times to unveil it is pretty cool. Next thing you know Apple will develop the iChat into iHolo and we'll have mobile holograms. Hmm, iHolo. Maybe I should register that trademark and domain ;)
