Modi's 3D speeches during 2012 elections enter Guinness Book
The 3D broadcasts of the speeches of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi during the 2012 Assembly elections have entered the Guinness Book of World Records.
"Gujarat election campaign 2012 becomes even more memorable with the 3D interaction creating a Guinness World," Modi said on twitter.
The Guinness World Record for most simultaneous shows of 'the Pepper's Ghost Illusion' (a technology) is now held by Raj Kasu Reddy and Mani Shankar of NChant 3D, which telecast, live, a 55 minute speech by Modi to 53 locations across Gujarat on December 10, 2012, Modi said on his blog.
Nchant 3d used 3D 'holographic projection technology' for this purpose.
During the run-up to the 2012 Assembly elections, Modi first used the 3D holographic technology on November 18 to simultaneously broadcast live in the four cities of Ahmedabad, Rajkot, Vadodara and Surat before doing it for the 53 locations.
This technology is popular in Europe, and has been also used by Hollywood celebrities like Madonna and Mariah Carey. Modi went on to win the 2012 election convincingly, making a hat-trick.
