The technology advances on breakthroughs that were showcased during Tupac Shakur's famed posthumous Coachella appearance in 2012. M.I.A. tells HitFix, "I think if you can have artists be a hologram and you can access it, and you have them life-size, in your house, it could be kind of cool.

Short Animated Film Celebrates the Importance of Design

Director Johnny Kelly and designer Scott Burnett's short animated film "Shape" promotes the importance of design in everyday life without the use of language. Says Kelly, "We thought quite a bit about who the film was for, and what they might get from it. For instance my wife is from a rural part of Ireland, and although she is now a very talented (if I may say so) interior and product designer, I think I speak for her when I say she didn’t really have an awareness of what design was when she was growing up – what it meant, that it could be a career. In a way the goal was to reach out to people like that, it would be lovely if a ten-year old watched this, and afterwards thought a bit more about the chair they were sitting in, or the pen they were using, or how hard their phone is to use."
