Nokia gaze tracking eyewear with crystals

 

Wouldn't it have been amazing to sing backup for Bowie, sit in the front row of a lecture by Einstein, visit the lab with Marie Curie, or gaze into outer space with Buzz Aldrin?

Sadly, the first three are no longer with us, but Buzz is and he's been digitized as a volumetric hologram by VR/AR startup 8i so he's future-proofed for eternity.

8i started in New Zealand and has several staffers, including co-founder and CTO Eugene d'Eon, who worked with Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson at Weta Digital. 8i recently opened an L.A. offshoot, in a temporary space on a soundstage at Culver Studios (where Orson Welles's Citizen Kane and the 1960's-era Batman TV show were both filmed) while its new office is being constructed. PCMag met up with CEO Linc Gasking—who sold one of his earlier startups, countingdown.com, to Dreamworks—to get a demo and find out what's on the slate for 2017.
