How to Make a Star Wars Hologram

Intro: How to Make a Star Wars Hologram


Step 1: What You Will Need

A ruler
4 small sheets or one large sheet of clear paper
Sticky tape
A phone or I pod (anything you can lay flat with the YouTube app)
A marker

Step 2:

If you are using a small device like a phone you should have the bottom line 1cm and the line going up 5cm don't forget to use a ruler.
( you may have to change it slightly depending on how you draw it and how big the technology that you use is)

Step 3:

Place the other clear sheets on top of the shape you have all ready drawn and trace the same shape onto all of the other sheets of clear paper.

Step 4:

Cut out all the shapes

Step 5:

Line up all the shapes to make sure they are all the same size

Step 6:

Use sticky tape to attach all the shapes

Step 7:

Attach the two sides that have no more shapes next to them to form the 3d shape above

Find a dark room and lie your device flat, open the YouTube app and search star wars holograms, place your 3d shape in the centre and press play.

    Thanks for asking, it is just projected onto the plastic but it creates the illusion that is it floating.
