    Is this vid an ad? Why presented by Intel?

    Hologram may be sensationalising this a bit – it's 360 video and photogrammetry, cool technology but not holograms.

    I admit this episode had me in tears, I would have given anything to have this tech for a loved one lost.

    I see that this machine to have a emotional aspect in it esp. when you have maybe "recorded" family member(s) and somehow in the future someone they love died and this would flood a lot of emotional attachment, those memories with that loved one, even if they are now just a hologram.

    I had the very same idea some longer time ago, but the question is what is the difference, what is the benefit of green-boxing people, while you could have memories of them in their natural surroundings. Their home, their home area, recorded with a traditional gear. Do you want to look at the person from behind when he/she talks? Kind of topic to think about.

    It's v cool but not an "every one can do this" tech as you need multiple synced cameras. Not actually organic memories but forced occasions still cool to look back at how people grow

    Once I saw multiple computers and cameras I was out. Get back to me when this can be done with ur phone ???

    Oh my god. I am freakin blank right now. Maybe in future I can make a vr of my close to me and interact with later.

    This is scary stuff. Disrupting the relationship people have with the cycle of life, intertwining the virtual and the real self in just one big blurred memory.

    I'd 1000% do the VR thing and the idea of the AR portraits is an AMAZING innovative idea

    There is an episode of Max Headroom where a TV evangelist suckers people into giving their life savings for a crude AI embedded version of this, for them to basically talk to their loved ones after death… Max Headroom was indeed the original Black Mirror. In the end society will become like that last scene in Until The End Of The World, where people become addicted to the past to the point of loosing their minds.

    Best series on Verge so far. The tech is out of the world. Loved it.

    Still new technology but it could have great potential. too bad resolution this days is quit low the "characters" look kinda low polly and low res.

    So ww are one step closer to Darth Revan's holocron!

    The technology is cool, but the implications are dark. This is creepy and denies a natural progression of moving forward with life, accepting that the past is over. If this becomes a thing, we're going to have some seriously emotionally unhealthy people in the upcoming generations.
