Digital pictures merged to holographic - like image?

A souvenir vendor took two digital pictures of me and my husband, merged them on a computer, printed the interleaved (?) image, then adhered a piece of acrylic with vertical lines (scratches?) to it.  The result is like a hologram in that you see the two different images as you tilt the (acrylic overlaid) photo. How can I make those?

How do I determine the size of the image needed to reflect onto a cylinder (see Q for better description)? Answered

I plan to take a large disc shaped screen and then reflect that image onto a cylinder to create a holographic effect. Right now this is just a concept but I am wondering if this is plausible and what size the disk would need to be to create an image to cover the cylinder. If a formula could be provided that would be best or just a general explanation of how to find a formula.

How do I make a printed hologram?

Hi all, I found this really 80s button with a cute little eye holograph that blinks. Could anyone suggest how I could reproduce these? I love the fact that the 'resolution' (or the line spacing) isn't very fine and particularly want to incorporate that. Would love your ideas. Thanks!!

The halfbakery - ideas for instructablers

Occasionally, we get forum posts requesting ideas for things to make next. In case youse guys hadn't heard of it, I'd like to mention the halfbakery.This is the place that mentioned a hand-dryer that is activated by evil cackling and several variations on holographic imagers, amongst a bevy of other things. So you got the skills, try browsing there for inspiration. It's also quite fun in its' own right.

Project needs help

Ok. So I am printing a 3d model of the ghost from destiny... and it has a small LED light that activates when I twist the body. I'd like to make a hologram that spells the words "Hello Titan". I have seen some people use simple Holographic paper pyramid but how could I do this? After this is done I want to put a speaker with a pre recorded voice that says the same thing everytime the light activates? (Help would really be appreciated :)

Need help with my project- Virtual Keyboard

Hi, im working on this project called the virtual keyboard. the details can be found at  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_keyboard im facing a few problems, projection module requires for the use of a holographic plate to project the image of the keyboard on the surface but this stuff isn't available to me so i'm searching for alternatives, i've tried projecting the image using light and a plastic sheet instead but it did'nt work. i  also tried working with infrared light but the spot size is too small and would require a diffractive image to correctly project the image due to its compact siz

ARK, hologram community

Hello everyone ! I'm building a project, called "the ARK" : It is a holographic pyramid with a new type of interface who gives life to your projects. Holography has always been fascinating: you see your 3D, you work on it, and you can create directly with your hands. Today this type of holography is really expensive compared to the simplicity of its fabrication process. I want to give the possibility to use it for everyone. The Ark has a software suite. Your drawings, films, models, all in holograms and in 3D GPS augmented reality view, directly on your smartphone to walk in your creations. And more:  with the sensitive gloves it will be like feeling the 3D under your fingers. Films, 3D, drawings, you will be able to touch and feel all of it. THE STORY : This project started two years ago with some research in my architecture school; I created the first holographic reflector “Ark-mini” for the students of our school. This creation is now in open-source (for more information see HERE, you can translate the page) For this new project, I want to create the more intuitive, complete holographic software: you will just need an USB and HDMI connection and let’s go! Order, and the ARK will follow it with his speech recognition menu. I will present 3 softwares for the Ark:     The ARK-creator for your 3D creations     The ARK-movie: what you film is what you see… in holograms.     The ARK-net to send directly in augmented reality your project, to visit it with you tablet or smartphone. This project is a personal initiative that I have been developing since last year, thanks to the help of some forums and Internet’s people who follow me. Today I propose you to make this project a reality. The first Ark serie will be presented in Paris, at the “Futur-en-Seine” numeric convention in the “Gaité Lyrique” on 13th june, and at the end of june for my Diploma. The thing is, i want to build this project with a creative commons license (open-source), and i'm trying to build a community. For the moment, i make a simple design for the ARK, i will have six month to build the software. We can (i hope so), in the future, create something like a "Jarvis" (who do not dream about this :) ). For the moment, i'm finishing the file with the design and the prequel of the software (openframeworks). But you can register in the forum and i'will send you a newsletter when it will be done. I hope we can make something beautifull, and, it is not just an idea:  i am doing it (but i need you)! here the LINK of the project here the FORUM / COMMUNITY

MGS5's iDroid - Can it be Built with Open Source Tech?

I can't get enough of Metal Gear Solid 5! It definitely deserves the 10/10 scores its received! But as cool as it would be to have a giant robot or even a Walker Gear that you and/or your enemies can pilot, I think the coolest thing to have from the game would be the "iDroid". If you havent played "The Phantom Pain" or "Ground Zeroes", the iDroid is a device Snake uses for multiple purposes. Some include: sending radio trasmissions and calling in supply drops or helicopters between the iDroid's location and Mother Base, Displaying a topographical satellite view of the area Snake is in, Organizing Mother Base staff, resources, R&D; projects, and playing music from cassette tapes found while on missions, Just to name a few. (bold font is to differentiate the uses) So is it possible to build a similar device using the open source technology of today? (minus the use of cassette tapes and a 2D holographic projection screen) I'm pretty confident that it can be done, but what do you guys think?

I want to make some rotating LEDs (led ball), any ideas on how to make the conection? Answered

Hi, First, I will post some links: http://laserpointerforums.com/f57/led-orb-2-0-a-50012.html This is the original thing, the first one. Contains a video and pics of the project. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEvToQ9jMXs Video (original user, not mine) I wanted to make one myself, so here I am, after gettin my head on fire and not getting a really good method of turning the LEDs on. For now, I'll make a 2-axis only, and maybe later add the third axis I already have an idea on how to make connect the power to the structure with the motor that rotates the LEDs, but I'm having a really hard time trying to get that power to the LEDs. My idea was to use 2 springs, 1 for positive and the other for negative (in the original project, he used a spring to the positive), but they failed as they kept the motor from spinning... Any ideas? Thanks x)

Back to the Future contest opened a bit late

So, as we all know, the day that Marty McFly travels to in 2015 is fast approaching (October 21). As a big BTTF fan, I put together an entire Marty McFly costume complete with holographic hat, Nike Air Mags, and jacket. A couple of days ago I posted an Instructable on how to make the jacket, but now it seems I am ineligible to enter the Back to the Future contest that just opened today. (I didn't even know about it because it wasn't on the upcoming contests forum post or the contest page of the app) Obviously, I'm pretty bummed and honestly it seems kind of late for the contest to start only two weeks from the day that people are going to want to have a bunch of BTTF props and costume pieces put together, don't you think? I actually rushed to get my tutorial finished because I wanted to be sure that others in the community would have enough time to follow it and make their own. Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions on a way I could still enter. I would just post a new, improved Instructable for the same thing, but I don't want to feel like I'm spamming or have my featured percentage to go down. =\

Suggested Project/Instructable: Holo Display

Hello all, I had an idea a moment ago for a "holographic" display but I realise that I do not currently have the supplies necessary to complete it. It is actually a combination of a couple other peoples ideas to form a new concept. Someone on here, (open new tab>search) NK5, made an instructable on how to make a kind of hologram. Another cool frood, Johny Chung Lee, came up with and did some basic programming for a different kind of simulated hologram and a multitouch system. And lastly there was a group that made a pair of specialised LED gloves to go with the multitouch system. My thought was: make a reflection hologram and use the Wiimote multitouch system to make it interactive. Project the screen onto the floor or put a large screen tv on the floor (if you want to risk it. and place the glass over it at 45 like with NK5's idea. Put the wiimote at the base of the glass. (it would be simpler if it were behind the glass but I think glass disables IR cameras) Then put on the IR gloves and run it all together with a program that supports the multitouch. Once you got the hang of it it would be more or less a "Minority Report" type display. Well, that's it. I can't make this because I do not have a projector or a pane of glass anywhere near large enough. Nor do I have sufficient expandable cash to purchase such objects. Good luck.

The Star Trek Home

There's the technology today to produce most of the comedies seen in star trek, not just the original series. I'm talking the TNG or DS9. The automatic sliding doors are seen in almost every supermarket. You would install them with steel or aluminum doors with the design seen on the shows. Come badges could be produced. The only problem would be wearing a cellphone sized device somewhere on your body. The hypo spray could be developed with our technology, we use syringes more often. The technology in hyposprays was used in mass vachination machines. I'm sure it could be miniaturized. Isolinear chips compare to memory sicks or SD cards of today. One could install touchscreen monitors throughout one's house linked to a central computer. Microphones and speaker hidden throughout the house could provide the voice access like seen in star trek. Al though you might want to upgrade their authorization code method. It's horribly insecure. A PADD could be a tablet pc or kindle. It uses induction charging, something that could be incorporated or built in using today's technology. The "laptop" used in readyrooms could be a laptop. The facebook video message system shows how the star trek messages could be transferred. Skype could be used as transmissions. A giant monitor could serve as a view screen. A replicator is hard to do with today's technology, but we have machines that can produce drinks. We don't have phasers, but current day guns are as good as them in stopping power, and they can't be damped by damping fields. Torpedoes in Star Trek  are just like air to air missiles in the sky or normal torpedoes in the sea. Jefferies tubes could be installed in one's home if you wanted it to.  Next are somethings that aren't as good as the ones in star trek. Our medical technology isn't as advanced. Tricorders could be iphones modified a bit with radar and other technology. They wouldn't be the same quality as the ones in star trek.  A holodeck could be simulated with virtual reality machines, movie theater, video games, and a 3-d holographic projector. They would be most of the uses a holodeck is used for. There are somethings we don't have that is seen frequently in star trek. Transporters and Warp Drive are chief among them. In some ways though, we have surpassed the technology seen in star trek. Touchscreens are a prime example. Instead of the unchangeable interfaces we see in the bridge, we could put touch screens in all of the consoles.
