Ever wanted to take your smartphone to the next dimension? Well thanks to this simple and easy tutorial by tech master Mrwhosetheboss you can now use it to generate 3D holograms, using little more than everyday objects you can find around the home. The best part? Not only is it a neat trick, but it’s incredibly quick and easy to do! Watch the instructional video or follow our super simple eight step guide for your own portable 3D cinema.
You Will Need
- Graph Paper.
- A CD case.
- A pen.
- A penknife.
- Your smartphone (obviously).
Start by drawing out a basic rhombus shape.
The dimensions need to be 1cm by 3.5cm by 6cm.
If you’re feeling adventurous, you can double or triple these dimesions for a larger effect, but this size is recommended for beginners.
Cut out the rhombus so you have a paper template.
Next, pull off the sides of your CD case.
This stops them from getting in the way.
Using your pen, draw around the paper template onto the plastic of the CD case.
Use your penknife to cut the shape out of the plastic.
Do this four times, so you have four plastic rhombuses.
Using little rectangles of tape, stick the four rhombuses together.
So it looks like this.
Place it on the screen of your smartphone and play a hologram specific video. These can be found on YouTube.
Turn the lights off and TA DA!
Enjoy your 3D hologram!
