To begin this project you will need the following:

-Thin Plastic (can just be old packaging)
- A ruler
- Hot Glue Gun (with hot glue gun sticks)
- An equilateral triangle to trace
- Scissors
- Permanent Marker
- A screen (iPad/smartphone/tablet) you get the idea.

Step 2: Tracing

Now, carefully cut out the triangles that you traced with your permanent marker on the plastic.

Step 4: Tape and Glue

This is where the hot glue and the tape comes in to play, tape the edges on one side of each of your triangles. Once you've taped all the slides together the plastic forms are pyramid. The tape is a temporary hold until you hot glue the sides permanently together. One you hot glue the sides you can choose whether or not to remove the tape.

Step 5: Tablet Time

Go to YouTube and search: Hologram Jellyfish. From there you'll find multiple videos that you can use for your hologram pyramid. Hold your pyramid over the center of the screen and watch through the side of your pyramid.

If you have an iPhone (or iPad), I've created an app that lets you use any video or photo from your phone's camera roll with one of these projectors. It's called HoloVid ( !
