By request.

One of the new folks, inspired by the appearance of three-dimensional Virtual Tupac at Coachella a few weeks back, and the fact that he himself came along too late to see Jerry, wonders if technology is going to make it possible to re-create entire holographic concerts for generations yet unborn.

Thoughts?

3D

Just visited Universal Orlando for the first time ... one of the shows featured a realistic projection of a "famous" star that appeared on stage; that was pretty neat. However, in general I don't like 3D movies, and didn't really like a 3D television I tried out in a store last year. For the most part I like the characters to stay in their space. For the recent Star Trek movie, I opted for the 2D version, since I didn't really like 'Avatar' 3D that much. I'm sure that new applications will be interesting, though.

hm

well, off the top of my head, it looks to me like it's a limited edition art print that the artist based on a fairly famous photo (by Annie Leibovitz, I think) of Jerry playing a banjo, and the market value is probably going to have to do with whose signature it is, how rare the print is, and how much demand there is for their work.

I.e. Antiques Roadshow time!

Now an original print of that photo in good condition, call Sotheby's...

yeah

everyone would be wanting to download Hologram Jerry and have him in their living room.

I suspect that this would be more or less unnerving depending on whether one had actually run into Real Life Jerry.

I thought about Hologram Jerry too

It would be a cool thing to see on stage, but only if it was free to the public and tastefully done :)

This sounds

Intriguing, but also a little creepy to me. Watching a hologram of a dead musician "perform" on stage during a show? I'm not entirely sure of how I feel about that. It's one thing to see images on a video screen, even 3D real-as-you-can-get recorded performances -- that's the general nature of all recorded performances, even audio-only. But onstage, daring you to discern the real from the digital, live musicians interacting with a simulacrum? Give me real live humans creating real live music, please.

I guess, anyway. Getting to "see" Jerry again? Maybe yes, maybe no. I still dunno.

well, the funny thing is...

back in the day, when I was editing that computer magazine and Barlow was hanging out with the virtual reality wizards, there really was a day when I was at Autodesk when Jerry was there playing with early virtual reality technology (as in, you put on the helmet and you're in the other world). It was a memorable day. Also a hoot. But I don't know if any archival files exist...

Ah, those were the days.
