But instead of the split screen or window TV viewers might typically see during live remote interviews, the Obama spokesperson will be projected as a three-dimensional hologram, making it appear as if he or she is in the Manhattan studio with Blitzer.

I’ll stick with my virtual sets–at least until Adobe CS27 builds holographic technology into After Effects.
