The Tupac performance was not a hologram; it was a flat 2-D display. While the recreation of Tupac required a lot of computational horsepower, the display technology dates back to 1862 (google "Pepper's Ghost"), and you can have seen it in action over the last several decades at Disneyland and Disneyworld.

I honestly think that could be the biggest moneymaker ever. I was so impressed by the Tupac hologram... the whole crowd was. Yes, it sounded like it would just be a cheesy gimmick, but seeing it live....wow... words can't describe. I'd pay to go and see a full hologram concert any day, if it was an artist I loved. Imagine all the royalty money that could be "reincarnated" from the likes of Amy Winehouse... Michael Jackson... Jimi Hendrix... Kurt Cobain... so many dead people to see in concert!!!

I hear that other dead stars may be reincarnated for live events - John Lennon with Paul McCartney???

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
