Bill Gates may no longer be in charge of Microsoft, but his plans to build a Galactic Empire are in full swing. Gates spoke at the World Congress of Information 2008 in Kuala Lumpur, but he wasn’t there. No, Mr. Gates appeared as a 15.1 foot holographic projection. He didn’t plead for help from Obi Wan, and he didn’t state his desire to conquer the world. But I think it’s clear when a man appears as a giant hologram he has Lex Luthor style plans in mind.

The projection itself is claimed by some in attendance to be life like. The pictures make it look like Gates might be a bit blue, if this were true. But the definition of the projection is indeed impressive. I’m glad to see small steps like this being taken with technology. What it really means is that soon I’ll be able to teleport wherever I need to be. The luxury of being able to wake up 5 minutes before work starts and still be at your desk on time can not be emphasized enough.
