Entertaining students with guest lecturers as holograms

22 January 2024 by IdeaSpies

Some universities are starting to beam in guest lecturers from around the globe using the same holographic technology that is used to bring dead or retired singers back to the stage.

Loughborough University, the first in Europe to explore the technology’s applications, plans to use it to bring in sports scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to teach fashion students how to create immersive shows, and to test management students on navigating tricky business situations.

The box-based holographic units are sold by LA-based Proto, whose clients include companies such as BT and IBM and H&M.
