Remember when Michael Jackson's hologram performed at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards? Or when people lost their minds when a hologram of Tupac performed at Coachella in 2012? I watched it on a live stream and it was pretty cool. But would I pay concert ticket money to see a hologram perform for 2 hours. The family of the late and great Selena Quintanilla think you will.
Last week the family announced that they have been working with the company Acrovirt to develop a walking, talking, singing and dancing hologram version of Selena. The family hopes that by 2018 the digital version of their star will be ready to go on tour and record new music in a project called "Selena the One".
Some may think the idea is weird of creepy but Selena's sister Suzette said in an interview with Billboard, "By no means is this something that's creepy or weird. We think it's something amazing. A lot of new fans that did not get to experience what Selena was about hopefully will be able to get a sense of her with this new technology that's going to be coming out."
Could this be the future of music and concerts?
If the technology get really good could we one day be going to an Elvis Presley concert, or a Beatles show.
