Holograms

Hey, CNN! If you have to tell people it's "pretty amazing technology" every time you show your faux holograms, it's not actually pretty amazing.

BLITZER: You know what I like about this hologram -- and you're a hologram now, Jessica -- instead of having thousands of people behind you screaming and shouting, you know what, we can have a little bit more of an intimate conversation, and our viewers can enjoy that as well.

How excited are you, Jessica, that this is -- you're the first one that we've beamed into the "CNN Election Center?"

YELLIN: I know. It's like I follow in the tradition of Princess Leia.

...

I'm inside a tent in Chicago that's been built -- engineers spent about three weeks doing it. There are 35 high-definition cameras ringing me, in a ring around me. I'm in the center. And they shoot my body at different angles, and I'm told that transmits what looks like an entire body image back there to New York. These cameras, I'm told, talk to the cameras in New York, so they move and they know when to move when the cameras in New York move. And it looks a little different from real person there, but it's pretty remarkable.

BLITZER: It's still Jessica Yellin and you look like Jessica Yellin and we know you are Jessica Yellin.
