Everyone who grew up in the 70s or 80s knows that holograms were supposed to be our future. From Leia's message to Jaws 19, holograms were supposed to integrate into our lives and provide knowledge and entertainment. Time for you to make the future happen today from the comfort of your own home.
These Litiholo Hologram Kits have everything you need to make your own transmission holograms – up to 20 of them. Each film plate is a self-developing marvel (and refills are available from the manufacturer). The kits go together quickly and easily, and exposure time for each film plate is about 15 minutes. Most hologram rigs require special dark rooms with tons of stabilizing equipment, as the slightest jiggle or pinprick of light can ruin the exposure. But these kits work so well you could pull off a hologram on your office desk at work, slightly shushing those around you for a little quiet. Granted, it will work better in a dark, quiet space, but we've witnessed it work with fluorescent office lights overhead.
Please keep in mind, though, that what you make won’t be a moving princess or a snapping shark, but a 2" x 3" static hologram. This kit is not a toy, but a serious science kit which will yield tiny works of art. Each hologram will need to be put back in the rig to be viewed, but that just adds to the wonderful "science kit" feel of this fantastic DIY project.
