While I was looking for inspiration to bring and idea to life for the PiCasso Design Challenge I came across something clever, really unique and something I really wanted to try for myself once I understood how it worked: A Hologram-like projection using the Pepper's ghost principle.
Using the Pepper's ghost principle one can create a 3-D illusion displaying symmetrically opposite images that seem to float in mid-air and which are visible from different angles, this by no means is a 3-D image of course but a projection of 2-D images producing a clever result.
This project will involve some research as most of the projects related I've found rely on the Pepper's ghost pyramid that is used on top of a screen -or at least most of the ones I've seen-, like the animation below.
To build this project I'd like to put the display that projects the images on top of the pyramid which I plan to build with pieces cut from a Plexiglas sheet and may require slightly different angles to build. Also I'm planing to use custom-made 3-D printed parts to make all the assembly in general.
As of now, the general assembly and build of materials will consist of the following:
