Believe it or not, it is called Hologram, and Tupac died on September 1996, this video is 2012.
The reception to a life-like hologram of Tupac Shakur taking the stage last weekend has been surprisingly mixed, including a reaction from the late hip-hop star’s mother.
Initially, fans were shocked, then amazed, as rapper Snoop Dogg and producer Dr. Dre pulled off the ultimate hip-hop coup d’tat to legions of fans at the Coachella music festival in the California desert.
It was as if the endless theories surrounding Tupac’s 1996 death, that he faked his own murder, had come to light in the form of the rapper’s hologram. The 25-year-old iconic singer was back on the stage in an unprecedented live performance, 15 years after that fateful September night when he was gunned down just off of the Las Vegas Strip.

Holography is a technique that allows the light scattered from an object to be recorded and later reconstructed so that when an imaging system (a camera or an eye) is placed in the reconstructed beam, an image of the object will be seen even when the object is no longer present. The image changes as the position and orientation of the viewing system changes in exactly the same way as if the object were still present, thus making the image appear three-dimensional.
The Royal Canadian Mint which produces all of Canada’s circulation coins has issued its latest collectible coin featuring a dinosaur whose skeleton shines at night from beneath its scaly hide.
It’s actually two images on one face, which could be a world’s first. The other side depicts Queen Elizabeth. Her Majesty does not glow in the dark.
The skeleton can best be seen after the coin is exposed to sunlight, or to fluorescent or incandescent light for 30-60 seconds, adding that the luminescence won’t fade with time.
Don’t Just Do Stuff, Get Stuff Done!
There is an important difference between working hard and getting things done. You should always know what your goals are for the short, medium, and long term. Keep them visible and up to date: design yourself a short mission statement and hang it somewhere visible. Focus your efforts on those tasks that tie in with your mission – if you’re investing in something that isn’t one of your most important goals, stop doing it and switch to something else.
This is not just another mission. The IMF is shut down when it’s implicated in a global terrorist bombing plot. Ghost Protocol is initiated and Ethan Hunt and his rogue new team must go undercover to clear their organization’s name. No help, no contact, off the grid. You have never seen a mission grittier and more intense than this.
