Illustration for article titled Wolf Blitzer Will Speak With The Jedi Council

We're one step closer to our dreams of having Robert Picardo pop up and ask us the nature of the medical emergency. On Tuesday night, CNN will be using 3-dimensional holograms of the Obama and McCain spokespeople, alongside the (somewhat) real Wolf Blitzer. Instead of simply showing the spokespeople on a splitscreen as Blitzer interviews them, CNN plans to film each spokesperson using 44 separate cameras, filtered through 20 computers. The resulting 360-degree image will be projected into CNN's Manhattan studio, making it look as though the spokesperson will be there in person. [Guardian]
