Live Via Hologram!

CNN don't care what people think any more. Wolf Blitzer is currently talking to Jessica Yellin "Live via Hologram from Chicago".



Yes. Instead of having a correspondent just appear on a 'screen', the CNN boffins have overlaid a three-dimensional representation of Jessica Yellin onto the picture. Wolf is talking to her as if her hologram is actually in the studio. The 'hologram' is even deliberately glitchy, like in Star Wars, just so you really believe in it. Bloody hell.

Thanks Mark, I thought I was the only one who could see the hologram. Could be a long night!

The situation's even weirder thanks to Wolf Blitzer's uncanny resemblance to Christopher "Almost Han Solo" Walken.
