Prince Charles Speaks At Energy Summit via Hologram (Video)

A life-size, three-dimensional image of Prince Charles was projected onto the stage of the World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi.

It's reported the Prince was reluctant to attend the summit because the flights for him and his entourage would have generated an estimated 20 tons of carbon waste. In comparison, the hologram left a carbon footprint equal to a lightbulb.

Connecta Group, which produced the image, said: "He was keen on using the hologram to show his commitment to reducing the carbon footprint. He is walking back and forth and gesturing with his hands. It looks as though he is right there."
