Creating a 3D hologram with your smartphone (video)

Holograms might appear to be limited to the realms of science fiction films like 'Star Wars' and 'Star Trek' but actually, they're far easier to make than you might think.

YouTube user Mrwhosetheboss in fact has created this devilishly simple video which shows how using just a few everyday items you can turn your smartphone into your very own holographic projector, reports The Huffington Post.

It's an astonishingly neat trick and one that proves just how simple some holograms are to make. Using nothing more than a CD case, some tape and a knife you can turn your iPhone into a DIY piece of the future.
