How to make a hologram with your own hands

Как сделать голограмму своими руками

With the help of a smartphone and a simple pyramid you can watch a video with a hologram!

Everything is quite simple - first you need to make a truncated prism from improvised means, run a video on your smartphone, put a pyramid on it - and you can enjoy the optical illusion, a moving 3D image.

So, you will need:

  • CD case or thick transparent film;
  • sharp knife or scissors;
  • a little scotch;
  • ruler;
  • graph paper or plain paper in a cage.

The video, reflected in the edges of the prism, creates the full 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 you will need laser beams. What we see is just an optical illusion created from a 2D video.

But does it matter? In 15 minutes without serious efforts you can make such beauty with your own hands.
