3D has been a buzzword in the technology industry for years. Ever since Avatar brought 3D cinema back into the public eye, there’s been a resurgence of interest in 3D technologies.
Now we see 3D TVs , 3D computer monitors, 3D videogames, portable 3D games consoles, 3D Blu-rays, 3D web streaming. There is even something called 3D sound!
The fascination is obvious. Watching things in 3D can be utterly fascinating, don’t you think so? The photos or videos seem more life-like. But although there are 3D television sets sold today, they come with a hefty price tag. Since not everybody can afford one, we either stick to the basics or we come up with an alternative.
Fortunately, watching in 3D is now possible through this DIY project – a 3D hologram projector. No, you won’t have to spend a lot of money for this. You can recycle an old transparent CD case and if you have a smartphone or tablet, you’re all set.
While this project cannot replace the full 3D effect, it’s a great source of entertainment. This is pretty amazing, I must say. Kids, and kids-at-heart, will surely love this.
