Thursday morning, a three-dimensional hologram of former President Ronald Reagan was unveiled at the Reagan Museum in Simi Valley, California. Reagan's hologram is the first-of-its-kind, light-based depiction of the President presented by the Presidential Foundation and Institute.
The foundation created his hologram with the help of top Hollywood special effects artists and it's evident! He looks so real...almost too real!
"We plan to keep the Reagan Museum relevant and engaging now and in the future. We often use leading edge technology to do that," said John Heubusch, the Reagan Foundation and Institute's executive director. "While we can't bring President Reagan back to life, using a stunningly realistic hologram and the president's own voice, we found we can get very close."
They've placed him in three different scenes:
"Placing him back in the Oval Office, at his ranch or campaigning from the back of a train has been accomplished with enormous respect for the man, his words and his memory," Heubusch added. "If people find this likeness and light-form as inspiring as it is magical, we’ll have achieved our goal."
This isn't the first time we've seen hologram so life-like. In 2012, similar technology was used to create a hologram of Tupac Shakur at Coachella Music Festival. Reagan's hologram is a perfect example of how far technology has come!
Reagan died in 2004 at the age of 93.
