Hey I thought some of you might find this interesting I came across this and bought it in Toys R Us. It is an interesting technology using magic principles. Basically you download an app on your cell phone then place your phone on a small stage hidden behind part of the stage and the images reflect on a clear plastic sheet disguised. Basically you have these little holographic actors appear and you seemingly interact with them for a two part show each 10-15 minutes long. It reminds me of a high tech flea circus.

I haven't gotten the whole thing down yet but it looks surprisingly good and my kids got a kick out of it. Here's the link:

Very cool!

Pegasus no it is not a true 3D hologram, but there is tech out there that does produce that effect, using a iPod/iphone etc. Using a pyramid design.
Look behind you...on your left...thats the real world.

Jamie I did not know they planned updates. That's cool.
Fire- No you can't unless you make your own bigger version for your laptop and your own FX as well. I recommend checking it out to give you ideas.

My kids love it.

I have a few more questions I see that you can film yourself and project the image,can you make your own little movie and project it? I can not seem to find any more info on this and the picture of the images are very small so can not see what the quality is?.

It's good quality. There is a head shaped frame you video yourself in and it cuts off the background. You can have a black background with a black shirt to make a floating head. You can say anything you want. (even make a prediction).

I almost bought this last week BUT while in line at the register noticed the app is 800MB!

I usually don't have more then 200MB or so available on my iPhone so had to put it back. :-(

Well I got it and have been playing with it ,download app a complete nightmare,will not load and a lot of giga byte,but I did clear my phone so why I do not know? the extra instruction website does not come up how it should,but it comes up and all the tricks are revealed for free,so did not have to put the password in,how odd? every bugger can see all the tricks revealed,Did read up up on it before purchase and with lack of reveiew's I went for it and what reviews I did read were very bad press on how the app was hard to download,or it did not play the vidio.However I have had a play about as mentioned and I have a nice spinning card effect and I am pretty sure I can make some vids to make this look spooky enough for halloween and even a good size image aswell,so we will see £35.00 is a lot for it and I have experimented before with the peppers ghost elusion but id have to say never thought of the mobile phone as the projector.
