Best videos of 2011: Princess Leia holographic video

This video recreation of the famous Star Wars hologram comes in at number eight in our best videos of the year.

Although it doesn't quite live up to movie special effects, Princess Leia pays a visit in this holographic video. Using Kinect's gesture recognition capabilities and standard graphics chips to crunch the data, the moving hologram was transmitted in real time.
To find out more about the technology, read our original blog post, Kinect used to create holographic video of Princess Leia.
