Michael Calderone at Politico has an update on the flashy gizmos the TV networks will be rolling out for tonight's election coverage.


Among these innovations will be CNN's 3-D hologram technology:


"But when CNN’s Wolf Blitzer talks with Candy Crowley from the Obama headquarters in Chicago on Tuesday evening, the correspondent could simultaneously appear in the New York studio—at least as a 3-D hologram. Really."


I swear I didn't get this from The Onion.

This SNL spoof of wacky electronic electoral maps is comic genius. It starts with about 5:20 left.

Splitting Hairs oops Candy!
Let's not split hairs druther Candy. Because I like to keep my Candy all to myself. LOL! Well that's just like CNN. It will be interesting to watch them roll out that new technology. Hope all their onions are sweet.

I read the subject and went WTF? But then on CNN I saw the Princess Leia-esque hologram. Awesome.
