I just got my looking glass yesterday and was looking to make a holographic photo album to put in our entryway. Naturally, I needed to capture holograms before I can show them and I’d like to drive the display off of a Raspberry Pi Zero tucked behind my looking glass. So that poses two questions:
- Can I make a tool to create a “Quilt” from a video pan I captured on a phone (or other rig)?
- Can I precompute what the fancy shaders would otherwise do and save that as an image so the Raspberry Pi doesn’t need to do any work other than show a PNG?
Well, the answer to both is yes! May I present my janky, hacked together “oven” for baking video pans into precomputed holograms: https://newhouseb.github.io/lgoven/.
Here’s a demo created from walking across my living room:
