Bill Gates Appears As A Hologram
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 wasnít there. No, Mr. Gates appeared as a 15.1 foot holographic projection. He didnít plead for help from Obi Wan, and he didnít state his desire to conquer the world. But I think itís 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. Iím glad to see small steps like this being taken with technology. What it really means is that soon Iíll 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.
