Bill Gates made a “holographic appearance” in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia at World Congress on Information Technology 2008.
Perhaps, he’s trying this new method after being pancaked once and Steve Ballmer being egged the other day.
Neverthless, kudos to Gates for trying something new without having to travel.
KUALA LUMPUR: Bill Gates, chairman of software powerhouse Microsoft Corp, made a five-minute virtual appearance at the World Congress on Information Technology 2008 here.
A 4.6m holographic projection of the billionaire enthralled the 400-strong audience at the congress yesterday at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.
The image was shot in high definition and projected onto plastic foil which was stretched out in the centre’s Plenary Hall.
The result was life-like and impressive and the crowd applauded the effort.
