PORTL, a Los Angeles-based holographics company, has developed an amazing piece of technology that allows people to beam a 3D image of themselves to a 7-foot tall booth in any location around the world.
Several athletes/artists have used PORTL’s hologram technology in unique ways in the past few months. Earlier this year, Diddy, who was in Miami at the time, appeared at his son’s LA birthday party via hologram.

PORTL booths can also display prerecorded holograms. A couple of weeks ago, Marshawn Lynch’s hologram made an appearance at the Global Gaming Expo in Vegas.
