When Dr. Dre performed at Coachella over the weekend, he brought Tupac Shakur back from the dead via old footage and the work of some incredibly talented special effects artists. According to The Verge, the “video was composed by New York SFX company MPC using a mixture of live footage, wire-framing, and CGI. This was then fed into Musion’s holographic technology, which projects the image onto a special foil. The foil is based on principles set out in the old magician’s illusion Pepper’s Ghost, which trick audiences into thinking they’re viewing a person or object rather than a simple reflection. By using a lightweight foil which mimics the properties of semi-transparent glass, Musion is able to extend the concept’s scale without limiting the efficacy of the illusion."
Wow,  the results are definitely amazing
