Julian Assange / Wikileaks Hologram

Julian Assange used hologram technology to appear on Sunday for a speech at The Nantucket Project, a Massachusetts conference similar to “TED” talks.

The 43-year-old Australian native has been able to speak at several events from his “house arrest” thanks to Skype, but Sunday marked the first time he has appeared as a hologram. He is still living under “diplomatic asylum” at the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

The hologram event was organized from inside the embassy by London-based British billionaire Alki David, whose company Hologram USA owns the technology which made the transmission possible.

Documentary filmmaker Eugene Jarecki interviewed Assange at the project.
