Andrew Yang will campaign via hologram

Andrew Yang Hologram

Views from the Edge

Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang has unveiled a 3D hologram that he intends to use to campaign remotely in key battlegrounds states, avoiding the expense of flying across the country.

According to The Hill, Yang revealed the hologram during a segment on TMZ Live on Wednesday (April 9) showing him on stage with the late Tupac Shakur.


Yang said that it would allow him to be in two or even three places at a time.

“We are exploring rolling a truck out that would enable someone to see a hologram of me that is three-dimensional give my stump speech,” Yang said. “And, also, if I were in a studio, which we could set up very easily, I could beam in and take questions live.”

Yang said the technology would allow him to see questioners and interact in people in real time.

“They would see my every gesture and movement,” he told TMZ. 
Using the hologram ties in with his message of a new way of using technology to do things in a new way, he said in an interview with the Iowa newspaper,  Carroll Times Herald “We can’t be doing the same thing over and over again.”


“Technology is really cool,” Yang said. “When you see the hologram, the whole thing is very fun and invigorating. Certainly, when I saw the technology in action, I enjoyed it a great deal, so for folks in Iowa and other places, I think it will just be a fun way to experience it. It might be even more fun than seeing me in person.”

The businessman, one of 19 candidates for the Democrat’s nomination, also suggested that other pop culture holograms could appear beside him at voter rallies or town halls.

“If you’re going to go all the trouble of having a hologram set up, you might as well have some other people appear and make it more fun and entertaining for people than just coming to see a hologram of me speaking,” Yang told the Iowa newspaper. “We would make it fun for people.”
