Has the future really arrived? Will we have holograms coming out of our iPhones soon? Not really. But a video has popped up online that shows an iPhone application that may provide a holographic effect to images.
iHologram, which was created by David O’Reilly, works like this:
The application works by assuming a constant viewing angle (35-45 degrees), typical for when the device is placed on a tabletop. The 3d scene’s perspective is warped using anamorphosis, the same technique used in Hans Holbein’s painting The Ambassadors. This application does the exact same but updates dynamically.
I have no idea what this app is for, but it’s pretty darn cool, nonetheless.
