Holograms Help Winning Candidate Campaign Across India, From A Studio

This is kind of wild …
India’s new prime minister Shri Narendra Modi used holograms, portable stages and almost 200 high-end 14K and 20K Christie projectors to speak at 1,200 rallies in 32 days across that vast country, without actually being there.
UK-based Musion Das Hologram was responsible for consulting, designing and managing the holographic election addresses made by the politician. Speeches were recorded and broadcast live via a satellite uplink to the stages at each day’s events. There were some fixed stages and some on wheels.
Musion is the same company that did the Tupac comes back from the dead to play Coachella thing a couple of years ago.
