co-presented by current TV and twitter


Not to be outdone by the First Presidential Debate, video_dumbo presents Current and Twitter, who team up to create HACK THE DEBATE the very first integration of real-time Twitter messages (aka "tweets") over major portions of the live TV broadcast of McCain vs. Obama). For visual enhancement, video_dumbo will transform the Broadcast into 3D!

As Twitter users tweet (via the web and their phones) throughout the course of the live broadcasts, Current and Twitter will collect comments regarding the debate and layer the individual messages over the debate feed.

“This election will be one of the most massively shared events in history,” says Twitter co-founder Biz Stone. “Experience has shown us that Twitter shines brightest during shared events. With 37 members of Congress, both candidates, groups of activists, and a nation of citizens all sharing their opinions and actions in real-time over Twitter, we have an opportunity with Current to add some valuable features to democracy.”

In addition, the debate will appear in three dimensional space, based on a new polarized filter technique called Chroma-depth®. Ironically, this stereoscopic system is based on the colors RED and BLUE. Each object displayed in those colors will create the illusion of either protrude out of the screen, or retract behind the screen - creating a true stage for this political theater!
