(Funny Star Wars) As you may be aware, people were stunned when virtual Tupac Shakur took the stage at the 2012 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. After all, Tupac died on September 13, 1996, six days after he was shot several times in Las Vegas. So how was this accomplished? Visual effects giant Digital Domain brought Tupac to life (at a cost of $10 million) as a realistic hologram.
But that’s not the whole truth. You see, the master of holographic images is one little Star Wars robot known as R2D2. And there’s proof that he perfected the Tupac performance long before Digital Domain did. And here’s the video to prove it…
