Holograms in LEGO

The superstereoscopic screen from HoloPlayer One (what we call a Lentil) + a bunch of LEGOs + a rainy day with my kiddos Jane and Ben in the lab = HOLOGRAMS IN LEGO!

For the nerds out there, that’s more than your run-of-the-mill Pepper’s Ghost – that’s a fully autostereoscopic 3D 32-view virtual scene overlaid on the real LEGO scene, so the 3D virtual objects stick to the real objects in 3D meatspace (unlike what would happen in a 2D Pepper’s Ghost).

Creators Jane and Ben pictured here wondering (like me) why we are just doing this now.
