Who hasn’t dreamt of having a phone that can project holograms of the people you are talking to? Everyone wants the technology that we see in the movies and on T.V. shows. Especially that now 3D holograms have been featured in more pieces of cinema and T.V. than almost any other form of “futuristic” technology. Well boys and girls, the future is one step closer to being the present. With this incredibly simple DIY smartphone hologram hack, you can turn your phone into the one piece of technology that we have all wanted since we were kids. Check out how this DIY smartphone hologram hack works!
All you need are basic household items to make this happen.
Start by taking your graph paper and creating the shape shown below. This will serve as a template for your future cut out.
You will want your shape to measure 6cm on the bottom, be 3.5cm tall, and measure 1cm across the top. You can even double or triple these measurements to get a more clear image!
Then you need to grab a CD case (I know, what are those, right?) and snap the edges off.
You then want to take your paper template, and lay it flat on the CD case. Trace around the outside of it and use whatever blade your chose (an x-acto knife would work well) and cut out the tracing.
You will need to do this 4 times.
Using super glue or tape, whichever is easier, to hold the structure together.
This is what your finished instrument should look like.
Then you are all ready to go! Simply find a hologram video by clicking here, set it on top of your phone and enjoy.
This illusion is not a true 3D hologram – it still uses 2D images/videos to create the effect, while a true hologram recreates a 3D object and, with current technology, requires the use of split laser beams.
You can have a miniature fireworks show right from the comfort of your own home!
Who hasn’t wished for a creepy floating head above their phone screen before?

This is some seriously awesome stuff! I would never have guessed that you could do this to a phone with just these few easily acquirable items. It does beg the question though, if we can do this with simple household items, why haven’t we been able to actually put it in phones and T.V.’s. Someone should really get on that.
