The first automation of the Philippine Election was indeed a history in the making. Though there were technicalities on the day of the election, I salute COMELEC and the entire nation for making the realization of the automation as accurate and transparent as possible.

But aside from the automation, the battle of the two media networks is really a never ending war. ABS-CBN employed Augmented Reality on their election coverage while GMA 7 claimed that they are using and employed a Holographic Technology. Watch the video clips below and compare:

See the difference? Are they the same or not? Actually, they were using the same technology augmented through the used of a special computer and a software. Watch the clip below why ABS-CBN alleges GMA7 of fooling the people and not actually using a hologram technology. The fact that it was only based on a chroma effect and of a green screen background.


  1. Ever thought how cool it would be to create your own holograms? If there was a how to book or some plans to make your own hologram system?

    How can you learn hologram making if your not a MIT grad or professor or particle scattering? We simplify the creation of a hologram system so you can follow step by step to create it – and wherever you take it from there is up to you.
