Turkish Prime Minister gives speech as a 10-foot hologram

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan delivered a speech in the city of Izmir last Sunday by way of giant hologram. Erdoğan, unable to make the trip to a party meeting in the western Turkish city, recorded his message against a green screen. In Izmir, a full-body hologram of the Prime Minister roughly 10-feet tall appeared from a coil of blue light, waving to the cheering crowd. The Turkish Prime Minister used his ethereal form to talk about upcoming municipal elections, and an ongoing corruption scandal in the country that has led to a purge of high-level officials across his government. In 2012, Indian politician Narendra Modi broadcast 26 holograms of himself to crowds across the state of Gujarat.
