3D is all the rage in Hollywood, so now here is your chance to make your own 3D hologram! With new materials, it is easier than ever to make a hologram, and instructor Thomas Edwards will show you how. Participants will make at least one hologram (possibly two if lucky), and will also assemble a hologram display holder complete with AC-powered laser to take home to show off your work.
On Thursday, May 10, starting at 8PM, we’ll quickly review holography theory, then we will get to making holograms! We’ll run two hologram making systems, and each exposure takes about 5 minutes. With these new materials, development occurs during exposure, and requires no wet chemicals.
While some people are making holograms, others will be assembling hologram holders. Everyone will get two attempts to make a hologram to ensure everyone goes home with at least one working one. One attempt will be the red matchbox car (as seen if the GIF animation), and your second attempt can be something you bring from home, but it needs to be small (fit within a 2 inch cube) and preferably reflect red light well (not black, blue, green, but perhaps silver, white, red). The holograms themselves are 2×3 inches.
