Holograms on television, who knew?

The newsroom imploded with sound as CNN projected its second hologram interview of the evening. Then it immediately fell silent as a reporter turned up the TV and we all strained to hear what Will.I.Am had to say out of his hologram. Mouths were wide open, for we couldn’t fathom how (or why) CNN was projecting interviewees to its studio in hologram form. Is this the future of reporting? If so, it appears we’re all going to look like silver cartoon characters. Beam me up, Anderson Cooper.

If you haven’t seen the hologram reporting, check out the Chicago Tribune’s coverage of the freaky new way to interview people:
