Alki David’s new holographic technology company HologramUSA has a storied history of working with educators, entertainment events and technology companies to create astounding, jaw-dropping holographic presentations. But as reported before, HologramUSA is also looking to get into the politics.
HologramUSA wants to recruit politicians as new customers by marketing their technology as a way for politicians to visit their potential voters in different venues at the same time or in place of them when they can’t be a venue in person. The company already has a field example in Narendra Modi, who successfully ran for the position of Prime Minister of India.
Part of what made Modi’s campaign successful was Modi’s 55 minute speech, which was broadcast to crowds ranging between 10,000 to 30,000 at each broadcast site. The problems that arose when it came to creating such an event were solved with satellite communication and mobile HologramUSA Telepresence truck development. These solutions allowed Modi to broadcast 106 different holographic speeches over a two month period. The feat also awarded HologramUSA a Guinness World Record for 53 simultaneous broadcasts of a Pepper’s Ghost illusion.
