An industrious tech reviewer has developed a very cool method for turning your smartphone into a 3D hologram projector. Mrwhosetheboss posted his process to YouTube, which effectively creates a homemade version of portable hologram generator Holho. Want to give it a try? Let’s talk you through it.

You will need:

  • Graph paper
  • CD case
  • Tape or Super Glue
  • Pen
  • Scissors
  • Smartphone
  • Knife or Glass Cutter

Start off by drawing this pattern on the graph paper:

Break the edges off the CD case:

Then trace the outline of the shape you drew on the graph paper onto the CD case:

Cut the shape out with your knife:

Repeat three more times, until you have four trapeziums.

Stick the shapes together with tape to form a pyramid, without the peak:

Though Mrwhosetheboss lists tape or Super Glue, he stresses that the gluing the pieces together is very difficult.

Load up a hologram-specific video on your phone, and place your newly constructed pyramid in the centre of the image:

There are numerous custom videos to achieve this task to be found on YouTube, such as the one used above, created by Cospe S.a.s., creator of the Holho.
