"Holo-Pac", from Coachella, might go on tour

One of the more controversial – and talked about – parts of last week's Coachella music festival had a lot more to do with technology than music.
The late gangster rapper Tupac, who was shot to death in 1996 – took the stage to join Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg for a song through the magic of…holograms!
Yes, the buzzword you haven't heard since the 80s brought a rapper back to life on a stage in front of hundreds of thousands of concert attendees.
But if that sounds just too crazy to be real, you might want to sit down, or tie down your socks because I'm about to blow them off.
Based on the “success” of that appearance, according to the Wall Street Journal (via. AllThingsD) there are talks of a new Tupac Shakur headlining concert tour in the works.
The future may not be full of the flying cars and self-lacing Nikes we were promised, but it's not boring, eh?
