Introduction: Smartphone Hologram

Now this is very easy instructable to turn your smartphone into a small hologram. It takes roughly 10-15 minutes to make it.

First of all you will need these materials to proceed:

  • CD Case.
  • Graph or Plain Paper
  • Pen.
  • Tape.
  • Scissor.
  • Cutter.
  • Smartphone.

Step 1: Cutting Pieces.

Now draw the diagram given in the template above with proper measurement on plain paper and cut the paper in the shape of that diagram.

After cutting the diagram, place the paper template on the CD Case and draw the outlines.

Then carefully cut the CD Case with cutter in the same shape.

You have to cut four pieces.

Once you get all the four pieces of same size then you are ready to proceed to next step.

Step 2: Joining Pieces.

Now join all the four pieces like it is shown in the above picture.

You can glue them or else join them with the tape.

Make sure all four pieces are joined properly and form the shape of a Pyramid.

Step 3: Downloading Videos.

Now download any one of these demo videos and transfer it to your smartphone.

Step 4: Placement.

Now turn your smartphone brightness to full and play any one of the videos downloaded.

Place your smartphone with screen up on a flat table.

And then place the pyramid on top of your smartphone upside-down as shown in the picture above.

Make sure you place it right in the centre of the screen.

Now turn off the lights and see the magic.

ENJOY!!!!!

Hello, where does your proportions come from, please? Could you explain these choices? (sizes, angles)

author

It depends on the screen size or the video screen size of your phone.
The size I have given is just random but the proportion should be the same. You can modify/increase the size that suits your phone.

Hi - If you've got an iPhone, I've made an app that lets you use any video or photo on your phone's camera roll with one of these projectors. It's called HoloVid (http://getholovid.com). Hope that helps!

But that's not a hologram, its simply projection, or reflection actually.

stayed up late to make this and it was so worth it. My kids are going to love it. I give this a solid 5 stars.

The hardest part was cutting the CD cases. You need to score them with an X-acto knife, multiple times. Then you can start cutting with a pair of scissors and the pieces will break apart. The holograms look amazing!

Omg! So cool! I looked up the original Holho (the pyramid thingy) and today I'm going to make a cardboard base. PS - if your video shows upside down, you flip the whole unit over. The pyramid works on top of under the phone. :-)

It would have been better with your own photos, instead of stills from somebody else's video

author
faizans97737 (author)Kiteman2015-08-06

I myself made one and it got misplaced, as I din't took photos, I uploaded some from the internet.

You either need to make a whole new one and take photos, or unpublish this project. It is in the site terms of service that you only publish your own images, or those you have been given permission to use.

You can cut one more piece and replace it with the broken one. ;)

indesisivewaffle (author)2015-08-04

what did you use to cut the case and could you show a video of it in action if you could? cant wait to make one!

author

A sharp cutter would do the job.
