To kick off the 2017-2018 school year at UCSB, the PhoSoc Outreach team developed an idea that Wendy Ibsen at CSEP had: to have 8th grader's families make Peppergrams and use their smartphones to see a 3D projection seemingly floating in space!
The effect is based on "pepper's ghost", an old carnival trick that projects a reflection off of a transparent glass, making it look like something is floating in mid-air in front of you.
