Multi-holographic church campuses in Topeka might be in the near future thanks to Google #1G4Topeka

There’s a big focus in the U.S. now to get Google to bring a fiber project (very, very fast internet connections) to a community as a testing ground.  Topeka, KS might be in the running.  If so, image how this might be a paradigm shift in how a church’s communication method takes place.

PROBLEM: A church is out of seating and parking space — yet it still wants to communicate across town without building more facilities.

SOLUTION: Utilize a local theater or rented Sunday facility.  Use super fast internet speeds to pipe a holographic image of the pastor, click-track for a live band to play simultaneously, video and images are streamed real-time, and the children interact with a holographic Bible story.  Too far fetched?  Nope.  I’d love to explore this if Google brought the experiment here.  Tony Morgan seems to think this may happen in the next 12 months.  Clark ProMedia recently explored this concept during a recent video interview.

    My first thought was that you’ve gone crazy with the projectors idea, but this is something that could really work given that Topeka can only support one theatre (thinking of the old closed spots in town). Drive in church anyone? How about Penwell Gabel’s streaming funerals?? Now on HD! Okay, sorry, now I’m poking fun.

    I’m sure there are plenty of venues in town that could serve as satellite areas, not to mention someone like ktwu might also utilize such technology. We should do some more geeking out over lunch!
