“The Tupac hologram was pretty cool. I liked how real it seemed and that the original artists for the song, both Tupac and Snoop Dogg, were there,” says Student Ben Bradshaw.
In an informal poll of 50 students, 76 percent said that they would go see one of their favorite late entertainers in hologram form in concert.
