How to make a hologram with your own hands
With a smartphone and a simple pyramid, you can watch a video with a hologram!
Everything is simple enough - you first need to make a truncated prism from improvised means, run video on your smartphone, put a pyramid on it - and you can enjoy optical illusion, a moving 3D image.
So, you will need:
- a box from under the CD-ROM or a thick transparent film;
- sharp knife or scissors;
- some scotch tape;
- graph paper or plain paper in a cage.
Video, reflected in the edges of the prism, creates a complete illusion of a moving 3D image.
Of course, this is not real 3D. A real hologram recreates a 3D object, and it is not so easy to make it, at least laser beams are required. What we see is just an optical illusion created on the basis of 2D video.
But does it matter? For 15 minutes without serious effort you can make your own hands with this beauty.
