Step 1: Cut the Parts

The rectangle should be from glass/transparent acrylic/transparent plastic, 1mm.

The rest should be about 4mm width material.

Glue all the parts together.

Step 2: Run an App on Your Phone

3D object on a black background works the best.

Don't forget the object should be mirrored.
