Digital Domain (Pepper’s Ghost Technique)

Digital domain is a a visual effects company that was founded by James Cameron. What is incredibly special about this company is what they did using the pepper’s Ghost technique. When Tupac died his co star Dr Dre collaborated with digital domain to bring Tupac back to life using a hologram that used the principles of the Pepper’s Ghost effect.

This video talks about how this technique works and how it actually allowed to Tupac to perform in front of a live audience one last time.
