FUSE: Holograms Activity
To demonstrate the principles of human perception of depth while having fun with "DIY Holograms", the Photonic Society Outreach team worked with Wendy Ibsen from CSEP to create an activity that uses a smart phone and a folded piece of thin plastic to display floating "3D" objects from videos. While these floating objects mimic the effect of a hologram, the demonstration actually uses the Pepper's Ghost effect to trick your eyes.
We kicked-off the 2017-2018 year by hosting this activity at 5 local schools with 8th graders and their families.
To learn more about the "DIY Hologram" activity and how you can set up you own "holograms," you can read the activity handout and instructions.
