How To create 3d Hologram on your smart phone

People Are Turning Their Phones Into 3D Holograms Thanks To This Viral Video

Holograms seem to be all the rage these days, but they are usually promised to us through some high-end technology we can’t get our hands on yet. So when I came across the increasingly viral video from Mrwhosetheboss (inspired by American Hacker) showing how to make a quick and dirty 3D hologram projector for your iPhone or other smartphone, I jumped at the opportunity. And it works!


If you have a ruler, some graph paper, an old CD, a pen, some tape, scissors, a smartphone, and a box-cutter, you can basically become the Star Wars character you’ve always wanted to be RIGHT NOW! Well, you can at least pretend to be that Star Wars character you’ve always wanted to bebecause with those simple materials, you can turn your phone into a 3D HOLOGRAM!

Follow these simple steps to turn your smartphone into a 3D hologram projector with old CD cases

You will need:

  1. Graph paper
  2. A CD case
  3. A pen
  4. A pair of scissors
  5. Sellotape or superglue
  6. A craft knife or glass cutter
  7. Your smartphone

How to make the projector:

  1. Sketch out a basic trapezoid shape on the graph paper using the dimensions 1xm x 3.5cm x 6cm.


2. Snap off the shallow sides of the CD case and carefully trace around the paper template to cut the shape into the transparent plastic. Repeat four times.


3. Tape the four shapes together, with the longest sides facing the top of the structure.


4. Select the holograph-specific video you’d like to project – this is a good example.


5. Place the shape over a video playing on your smartphone to create a mirrored, 3D hologram.


Holograms have yet to fully make the leap from science fiction to mainstream consumer use. Amazon’s Fire Phone was touted to be the first smartphone with fully holographic capabilities, thanks to four ultra-low power specialised cameras and four infrared LEDs within the display. The resulting effect is more of creating the impression the image you’re looking at is shifting as you move your head, rather than a projected image.
