A German circus has become the first in the world to use holograms instead of real animals.
The idea has been developed by Bernhard Paul, the founder of Circus Roncalli.
He came up with the idea when he was watching the NFL Super Bowl half-time show in 2018. During the performance, Justin Timberlake was seen singing alongside a hologram of the music legend Prince, who had passed away two years earlier.
Since then, Bernhard Paul has attempted to find a way to make the technique work within his circus.
Now the circus uses 11 projectors to create the 3D holograms and other projections in their show and the results are breathtaking.
There are hologram horses that appear out of nowhere, stampeding around the circus ring, as well as elephants and even fish.
The move to not use animals in their circus has been welcomed by many animal rights activists as lots of animals aren’t always treated well in circuses.
