    Hologram

    This is another one of those ridiculous ideas that I am sure will never work but if someone out there has the recourses and time here's to ya.
    Remember those hologram generators like in this videohttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrYWfJ7nS3w?
    Here is a picture of them:
    Here in Oklahoma, we built a snake room. This room had plexiglass floor with moving snakes underneath and creepiness all around. I though it would be cool to see a live snake via hologram generator. If you could make one big enough, the generator could be under the floor where guests walk. What they would see is a real snake hologram at actual size. Naturally there would be a plexiglass cover. Guests would be forced to walk towards a real snake on the floor. They would walk through a hologram.

    If this were possible you can imagine the other things you can put inside to create a holographic scary image. If any of you are crazy enough to attempt this, first I will call you FRIEND, and second, here is a good place to start: http://www.greenpowerscience.com/

    I jist saw one of these at a hobby shop in Indianapolis a few weeks back. The illusion is very convincing, but it was a small toy like the example that you postd. The illusion was only like fifteen dollars at the hobby shop.

    I'd love to see one build an agrand scale, or even one the size to crate a human head. They effect of the small one is bewildering to the mind, to say the least.

    To cointhe old phrase, "It's done with smoke and mirrors."

    Neat concept, it certainly has gears turning.

    I've thought about this before as well. I even wondered about using old satellite dishes but didn't really know how to get a good optical mirror surface onto them.

    I had an idea this morning about this mirror. If someone could build a giant concave structure, call it a "dish", and maybe cut it into sections. This would make it possible to have dipped into chrome and then assembled for use. Sure there would be lines, but would that matter? If the dish is constructed accurately enough the reflections should still work.
    For experimental reasons, take a black marker to the original toy (above) and draw lines inside it to see how it would react to holographic image.
    For research on dipping in chrome just google "chrome dipping" in your area. Whomever you find should be able to help with pollishing and plating as well. If anyone does this please keep us informed.

    I just found this video on youtube that shows a larger hologram toy being used. As I watched I see that angles will need to be worked out. But I am no less interested in this concept.

    Does the cover have anything to do with the effect? Is there a reflective surface on the underside of the cover?
    Thanks, Pete


    Ok, I see how i works..
    Here is a diagram.

    If you are going to the Transworld show this year, make sure to see my lecture. The hologram will be the closing discussion. I have major changes and updates on this and the pepper's ghost illusion. I will talking about both along with a lot more. Imagine the pepper's ghost flying up to you and then you can put your hand right through it. Here is a link to my lecture ( I'm near the middle of the page (Andrew de Ruiter): https://registration.haashow.com/eve...turdaySeminars
    If anyone is interested in my black book of ideas you can finally download one before the lecture here: http://www.epubbud.com/book.php?g=EGQDK8HZ
    I will make a more formal announcement regarding my lecture later.

    Awesome, we have been experimenting with the peppers ghost over the years, but have never really been able to master it. My wife will love this seminar, we will definitely be signing up for this seminar. Not to mention being able to put a face to the man with all the great ideas !!!
