Use 3D Kinect data and Augmented reality to make your own holograms now.


Sure you have seen plenty of Kinect hacks in the past but this lets you create your very own version of that nifty blue hologram Star wars style. It is made possible using 3D image data captured by Kinect, then playing it back on iPad via Augmented reality techniques. Making it look like real hologram used in likes of Sci-fi movies. Using the same tools any captured Kinect video can be changed into holograms for your daily use if you like.
