Laser-cut box for displaying pseudo-holographic images (pepper's ghost) using a phone. The dimensions are fit for Nexus 5, so max 140mm height, 72mm width, 12mm depth. Should not be shorter than 130mm.

The project uses a semi-transparent reflection (i.e. glass) to display a floating 3D object projected by the screen of a smartphone.

Developed for MediaHackDay Berlin 2015.


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.
