Does anyone here understand the hologram technology enough to be able to explain whether a Karen in concert hologram can ever be produced ?
Richard better get his rear-end into one of those booths while he still can! He's 72 and might not be around in 10 years when this technology really takes off!The four original members of the group had to stand in a booth with reference points marked all over their bodies and filmed moving naturally by 30-40 digital cameras from every angle. This will help the new generation of the technology to mimic their natural movements on stage. When the tour launches, you will not see them as they look now, but digitally recreated as their 1979 equivalents, and the ABBAtars will mime to audio of the original 1979 concert recordings in London.
Anyway, I digress. I suspect Richard will be long gone before this technology is ever perfected enough to be to his level of satisfaction - enough to bring Karen back to life anyway.
I know but the idea is similar in having the illusion of an older Richard performing with younger Karen.
I think they used a body double, a new set for Richard that looked like the original, and cut Karen out of the original video and digitally inserted her into the new video.He already did a project like this.
The Hologram technology is improving. The RPO album is an opportunity to put visuals like that together.
It'd be at the 2020 grammy's if anything and marking the 50th anniversary of Close to You I suppose.
There's no reason Richard would want a Hologram tour. It'd have to be a special event.
