    Default See if you can guess how this is done

    A guy contacted me who makes and sells these things. After looking at it for a minute, I figured out how it is done. I thought it was pretty clever, but I wonder how many others can figure it out just by looking at the video. Can you?

    The video / link is marked as "private" and won't load
    - There is no such word as "can't" -
    - 60% of the time it works every time -

    is it done with.... privacy settings?

    suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.

    I figured it out just a little faster than Bill did and I did it without even seeing the video! So, there!

    AHA sorry guys. I swore I said "unlisted" but I think YouTube misinterpreted me... Anyway it should be working now.

    As for Planters, everyone knows he's a super-smart guy ;-)

    I guess there is a screen on the bottom (or maybe the top), with the animation displayed three times for each face tilted at 45 ?

    And we can't see the screen from the point of vue of the camera because a kind of private screen sheet on it.

    ... yes, this is not a 'hologram', but three separate (flat) views in the bottom display, partially/individually projected/reflected on the three tilted tiles.

    This is a pretty old methode for the '3D-pyramides' sometimes seen on stages - with bigger setups even people can move/perform inside the pyramide, 'accompanied' by the projected/reflected displays ...
