If you are a circus fan who is also concerned about animal welfare, there is good news —
Germany’s Circus Roncalli is using holograms in place of real animals. These include twenty-foot-tall elephants, horses and fish(!), all projected with laser technology and seamlessly integrated with live performers. The explanation is (of course) on YouTube as “Holographic Animals at Circus Roncalli” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rfsVBIOdq1A).

Is this the circus of the future?
