CNN Introducing Holographic Interview

Remember the famous scene of Princess Leia's hologram asking Obi-Wan Kenobi for help?
Last night CNN made similar impact bringing CNN's correspondent Jessica Yellin via hologram!
She was recorded in Chicago by 35 high definition cameras pointed around her at different angles to capture the entire body image. The cameras were connected and synchronized thanks to powerful computers with the cameras at the CNN headquarter where Wolf Blitzer has his kingdom. I won't pretend that I understand all the technicality but the effect is awesome! Check out the recording of that oh-so-geeky event:
