Also its likely that the picture isnt created with accurate proportions, you could make it visible like that if you had enough room down there, its probably just the way the picture was made.
This would be awesome with other dead musicians and maybe even historical figures.
The second coming of Tupac. I knew it would arrive some day.
This is the same thing they did with the Miku Hatsune concerts in Japan. It's not new, but this is the first time this sort of tech has been used this way.
I've gotta say, I want my friends to do this when I die.Wikipedia Article on 2Pac posted:
Damn, they should have reconstructed him purely from ionized air. Who wouldn't want to see a Tupac-shaped ball of shining blue plasma rapping?
I don't even like rap but even i can appreciate Tupac.
20's is the new 90's guys.
I love the dystopian future
Everything's fake, but in such a fucking cool way I don't even care
I have in no way or form said that he is shit, nobody should listen to him or anything in that matter.
Being the original doesn't make you generic
Celebrity Holograms huh? Just in time, I just finished playing Dead Money.
This is fucking great! I'd love to see more of him
tupac is still alive, stuck between realities...
All video and interesting gimmick aside, what's up with people wearing their underwear way over their pants? The guy even has a belt on, fucks' sake.
Damn. They need a Biggie, Pac, ODB, Pun, Big L, and Guru super holographic group performance. My head would fucking explode
It's really cool, and I don't mean to be a dick, but of all the musicians that they could have debuted this technology with they went with a rapper? I'm not saying Tupac had no influence, because he definitely did, but I don't know, it just feels like this would have had more wow-factor if it was someone else.
This should of been used instead of the Tupac hologram
While I appreciate the technical wizardry and honest intentions of this... I think it's important to remember you're not watching Tupac. You're watching somebody's fake interpretation of him. The performance you're seeing on stage was probably motion captured from an entirely unrelated person, Digital Domain (the VFX house behind the CG hologram) won't even admit as to how much of the audio/voice is actually from Tupac himself. For all we know it could be an impersonator.
Personally, I feel this cheapens his memory. I can understand why others would feel the opposite though.
That said (bit of self contradiction going on here...) this is hardly any less live and "real" than the lip-synced or auto-tuned "live" performances which are so common place these days. Half the time when ou go to see an artist live you end up watching them on a screen anyway.
I guess I don't know what to think. I think real live music is about the connection between the artist and an audience, and I hope that never gets lost. Part of me worries it already is.
