One clever YouTuber has revealed how anyone can create a hologram using their iPhone.
The trick was shared by @Mrwhosetheboss on YouTube a few years ago and has since been watched more than 24 million times.
“Get ready guys because you’re about to learn how to make your very own hologram,” the YouTuber said at the beginning of the 2-minute long video.
“This is actually much simpler than you probably imagined,” he added.
He then informed users of the materials they needed, including graph paper, tape, a pen, scissors, a smartphone, and a CD case – though we recommend a flexible screen protector instead, and yes, we have tested it.
How to create your hologram projector
The first step is to draw a basic rhombus shape on your graph paper using the dimensions 1 cm by 3.5 cm by 6 cm.
Next, use your scissors to cut the rhombus shape out of your graph paper – that is going to be your template for cutting the screen protector.
Once that is done, you’re going to trace your rhombus shape onto your screen protector four times, and then carefully cut them all out.
