Errol Morris explains the Interrotron, the interviewing device behind The Fog of War and his other documentaries.

Q I don't get it.
A I got tired of sitting so close to the camera. (In my early films, my cameraman would grab the back of my head and pull me back because you could see the side of my head in the lens. When he yanked me back, it often hurt.) And I started to wonder, what if I could become one with the camera. What if the camera and myself could become one and the same?

Q You're losing me.
A Well, not literally. Are you familiar with Teleprompters?

Q Not really.
