A holographic image by the push of a button.

In 2006 at the the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, California, the virtual band Gorillaz and Madonna performed using a holographic projection technology.

 

Both the live and TV audiences who watched the performance had no clue that what they were watching, at least in the first few minutes of Madonna’s performance, was just virtual reality. The rappers De La Soul who came onstage were, in fact, the real deal.

It’s a modern virtual version of a stage illusion called Pepper’s ghost. How dit they do it? They used a Musion Eyeliner System to project a high definition 3D animated video to allow the moving images to appear within a live stage setting. I just love how technology is evolving. Watch a 2 minute how it works here.
