Hologram of Tupac performs

A hologram of deceased rapper Tupac Shakur stole the show at Coachella 2012, capturing the fascination of more than 100,000 fans at the annual music festival, and sparking a wave of reactions across Twitter and other social media.

The lifelike hologram captured the dead performers movements.

AV Concepts is the production company that created the hologram of Tupac.

The technology uses uncompressed high-definition video that can be projected as holograms or as 3D imagery on building exteriors, interior walls, stage sets and other structures.

If companies can deliver a convincing live hologram performance for less what it costs to send a band on tour, this could change live entertainment. A comparable event would cost between $100,000 to more than $400,000.
