This is not normally something I’d post here but it’s just so darned impressive that I had to share. From the guys at Zebra Imaging, this is a color hologram they created with data from Google Sketchup. The model is of downtown Seattle. The building heights in this hologram get up to about 10 inches.
The cool thing is that the 3D data really is there. You can actually take a tape measure and measure where the light focuses above the plane. The panel refracts light and focuses it in space, on the print itself, and inside the print.
