You’re not seeing things:
Steven Spielberg is now a hologram.
Part of the story in Ready Player One is the exploration of the line between reality and virtual reality (VR) in society in 2045, centered in Columbus, Ohio. Rest assured that this blog won’t just reveal spoilers for film and TV without a bold, unmistakable disclaimer. For this specific blog post, have no worries as there are no film or story spoilers here.
Having said that, the special hologram version of Mr. Spielberg is the latest spotlight of the continued blurring of lines between reality and virtual reality that’s existed in various forms for some time now. This cool tech in the video above–also utilized in the original Star Wars trilogy from back in the ’70s and ’80s with Princess Leia–is an example of VR that can live harmlessly in reality.
points coins would’ve been given to Steven Spielberg and the team at IMAX if they could’ve created and then broadcasted the beloved storyteller’s avatar that would live in the Oasis.
BTW – If you have not seen Ready Player One directed by legendary filmmaker Steven Spielberg in theaters on the biggest screen possible, then you should probably get on that ASAP with IMAX.
