3D holograms are really cool, and really expensive. Until now. Well, at-least since the last few years. With an old CD and a few stationary supplies, you can make your own on your phone (as long as it has a 3.5inch or larger screen)
Here’s what you need :
- Graph Paper
- CD Case
- Pen or Pencil
- Knife or Glass Cutter
Take your graph paper and draw a 1/3.5/6cm Rhombus like in the image shown below. Now, cut out the shape carefully with scissors and keep it aside.
Take your CD case and break off the outside rim. It’s just gonna get in the way, and we don’t need it.
Trace the cut out Rhombus on to the CD case with a Pen or Pencil
Cut the plastic really carefully with a knife ot glass cutter. Don’t hurt yourself. The smoother the cut the better it will look afterwords. You need to make 4 of these.
Putting all the pieces together is a tricky task. But with little patience you will be able to do it. Just place the pieces edge to edge and hold them together with a piece of tape.
The end result
The cleaner the plastic and the cleaner the cuts are the better it looks. You can also use hot-glue to put everything together, however it is messy and takes away from the experience. Feel free to experiment with super-glue as well.
