I Am Not Here – Turkish PM Appears as a 10-Foot Hologram

Turkish PM Hologram

Video no longer available.

It’s not the newest of technologies, and is mostly used in the entertainment industry, but now Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has gone full-on sci-fi by appearing as a massive hologram for a party meeting in Izmir on Sunday just passed. The PM was unable to attend the gathering, so rather than send some random representative, he takes things to another level by recording his speech in a studio green screen set-up, which was then shown to the faithful in attendance at the meeting in the ancient, and very beautiful city of Izmir.

We’re seeing more and more politicians using holograms, and I wonder how long until it’s as ubiquitous as watching TV?
