Midterm elections are upon us and of course CNN has new technology to deliver every result, after the holograms and multitouch display madness (lampooned brilliantly by Saturday Night Live) of 2008, Wolf Blitzer and crew have gone to iPads and augmented reality. Check the video after the break to see how Ali Velshi uses his tablet to make non-diegetic stats and graphs appear right in the studio with him, Fringe/Panic Room style. We can't imagine life without the yellow first down marker during football games, but watching anchors play hide-and-seek behind bar graphs is either taking things a step too far, or just the thing help us stay interested in politics a little longer.
