"Hopefully, 'Jim Morrison' will be able to walk right up to you, look you in the eye, sing right at you and then turn around and walk away."

Holograms need to up their game.

Of course, you know that the adult film industry will lead the way in this technology.

As long as it doesn't expose itself when it walks up to me I'm ok with this.

I suspect they'll "recreate" what ever sells. This probably means no Bob Dylan holograms in the future.

Air guitar!

Morrison will taunt: "Come on, come on, come on, come on and now touch me, baby!"

Yeah, that will be a hit. Again.

Will it be the bloated Jim Morrison?

This has been a technology that, if it lives up to the hype, has been a long time coming.

True 3-D.

It's 428 year old magical illusion known as Pepper's Ghost.

It's a fantastic illusion.

It's not a hologram!

As a veteran of at least one live Doors show (that I remember), I'd say the only way to make Jim Morrison authentic is to have the hologram emit a boozy vapor before it slurs some words and falls down screaming.

In reality ‘Jim Morrison’ will be able to walk right up to you, look you in the eye, try to sell you credit card insurance and walk away only to return to try again.

After reading Daveth Milton's recent book on Jim and the FBI, I doubt the hologram version will ever be quite as intelligent, interesting, edgy, creative, and, moribund and death-wishing - even if the music is almost the same. "... Turn out the light."
