Make Your Phone Into A Multidimensional Hologram Generator

Smartphones with 3D screens are only now starting to come onto the market, but what if you don’t want to buy a new phone? Turns out you can build a cheap 3D holographic effect into your current one without a whole lot of materials.

The original instructions (what little there was) are in Polish, but the instruction video should explain what parts and how to assemble them. Again, it’s not going to be anything you can watch 3D movies on with any kind of acceptable quality, but it is cool in the way that View-Masters were/are cool.

  • This isn’t really a hologram, where an object has apparent 3 dimensional depth when you turn to a side you see more of that side.

    This is a layered Peppers Ghost illusion, the same as is used in Disney’s Haunted Mansion ride, you do not get the illusion of depth to any single object in it when you move to a side.

    You could create a better effect with this setup if you could use the phones accelerometer to rotate the image on the screen as you turned the phone.
