The technology used by the Mirage 3-D Instant Hologram Maker to produce the pretty convincing looking hologram is not new. You may have probably seen it at a science fair or a science museum. However, unlike many optical illusions that are not as fascinating once you figure them out, the Mirage 3-D Instant Hologram Maker produces holograms that look so real, it is difficult to tell our minds otherwise. So while you know it’s just an illusion, the mind just cannot comprehend how something that looks so solid and real not be real.
The Mirage 3-D uses two concave mirrors to create the hologram. We don’t really know the science behind it but you can probably look it up on Google. Any object that is placed inside the hologram maker appears to be sitting right on top of the device. It can be viewed from a full 360 degrees and you can even photograph it. But it is not real and you hand or fingers will just go right through it. If you have never seen this before it can be quite mind boggling at first.
To prank your friends or (if you are really mean) small kids, try placing coins or candy inside and watch your greedy guests try to help themselves to your cash and candy.
