Earlier in 2012, Coachella debuted the Tupac hologram, which was the first of its’ kind. Tupac was seen rapping on stage, but it was all done through lights and computers. It’s a concept that many people want to make popular due to the possible educational benefits brought to the table. Cornell, nonetheless, has invested in bringing someone to speak through a hologram before this year’s homecoming football game.
On Monday, President Skorton announced that Cornell has dropped $500,000 to “bring in” Winston Churchill to perform his 1941 “Never Give In” Speech. “It’s a very exciting time for us, getting to witness a piece of history before a historic football season,” said Skorton. The main point that Churchill tried to stress was to always fight and, “Never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, give in. Never give in. Never give in. Never give in.”
Students are very excited, not for the speech itself, but instead because of the fact there will be free food and refreshments provided by Cornell Dining for everyone who comes. This whole thing is absolutely amazing. Maybe Tupac is alive. Maybe Winston Churchill is too? Maybe we never die and the after-life is a 3D hologram.
