Help Me, Wolf Blitzer — You're My Only Hope

Via USAT, CNN plans to outdo its primary-season technological adventures with floating pie charts by interviewing hologram versions of talking heads on election night. You read that right. HOLOGRAMS.

It's election night, and CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer is in New York talking to an Obama campaign strategist in Chicago.

But instead of the split screen or window TV viewers might typically see during live remote interviews, the Obama spokesperson will be projected as a three-dimensional hologram, making it appear as if he or she is in the Manhattan studio with Blitzer. The network plans to conduct similar holographic interviews with representatives from the McCain campaign in Phoenix.

Truly outrageous.
