I recently saw the coolest thing and I have been so excited to share it with you. It is a hologram projector using a thin sheet of plastic and your smartphone!
Seriously, and it really is so simple to do.
I created a free printable PDF with the instructions and patterns to make it even easier!

Trace and Cut:
The printable pdf pattern shows two different sizes. For small screens like cell phones, use the smaller shape. For larger screens like tablets, use the larger shape.
Take a fine-point Sharpie marker and trace the shape onto the plastic sheet. The hologram projector is four-sided so trace the shape four times.
With a pair of scissors cut out the four shapes.
Use transparent tape to assemble the cone.
I found it helpful to cut the strip of clear tape in half, otherwise, the tape covers most of the hologram cone.
Align the shapes by the sides keeping the short and long sides together.
When adhering to the last two sides/corners together you will see the plastic make a pyramid shape.
Make a Hologram:
Now it's time to use it! YouTube has a bazillion videos that can be used with your new hologram projector.
Simply type hologram into the search and they will all be listed for you.
The video I used while creating this tutorial is Hologram Project by Kiste.
Place the hologram projector you made on the screen in the center of the video with the small part of the cone down.
Get eye-level with the phone and see your 3d hologram come to life!
