This Circus In Germany Is Using Holograms Instead of Real Animals

One circus in Germany is getting creative in how they plan to tackle the abuse that animals often face: They’ve introduced hologram animals, instead of live performers. 

The circus — called Circus Roncalli — is the first to do this sort of thing; the animations are created on a computer, and then projected to the crowd. The animals — elephants, horses, monkeys, and more — are seen in a true-to-life size and can perform tricks and acrobatics, much like you’d see in a “traditional” circus, thanks to the 11 projectors that bring them to life.
