a device that takes holographic images
Strung about with Japanind Holocams with…LazeeLaser monochrome lamps.
On a yacht in paradise with no more to do than adorn herself and play with toys and attend revels and greet her friends—her, P. Burke, having friends!—and turn the right way for the holocams?
She had one green, normal eye, and the other one was red, without a pupil. My eyes were the same except the normal one was brown. The red-eyed holocams of the press never sleep.
The holocam is a partly mechanical, partly biologic device about the size of a fingernail clipping that is implanted inside the eye, way over to one side, out of the way of your peripheral vision.
As far as Luke could tell, there were no holocams or viewers in the stairwell: only a close-crowding monotony of permacrete walls, grimy with the brown tracks of drochs.
Realtime holocams reproduced the crystal sphere in which the girls were dancing, a sphere rising through a clear green sea shot through with bright bacterial streamers.
M. Despres shrugged, hoping his holocam picked up the gesture.
I'd have preferred to keep him incarcerated here, and eventually parade him out before the holocams either as a totally defeated prisoner or as drugged ‘convert’.
