CNN goes all Star-Wars on Election Night

Forget Wolf Blitzer's magic map, CNN steps a world beyond with their latest special effect and this one really is pretty cool.

Not only are they projecting states -- but they're projecting people.  As in holograms.

CNN political correspondent Jessica Yellin was the first hologram.  She was beamed to the network's studios in New York tonight.

As Yellin explained to Blitzer, "There are 35 different high definition cameras 'ringing' me.  I'm in the center and they shoot my body at different angles and I'm told that's transmits what looks like an entire body image back to New York."

Whatever it does, she looks like Princess Leia.  It's cool stuff.  Check it out.
