Do you want a nifty idea for a science project? Or maybe just something super cool to enjoy for yourself and share with your friends? We think this hologram projector may be just what you are looking for.

In this TikTok video, @kylekruegerr shows us how it's done.

If you want to do it yourself, you first need some clear plastic such as a container from a grocery deli or an clear plastic from an art store that is thin but sturdy enough to hold itself together when a pyramid-like shape is taped together with other pieces of the clear plastic.

First, you make what essentially is a pyramid with the very top cut off so a small square opening is present at the top. The individual pieces should be one centimeter wide at the top, 6 centimeters wide at the bottom and 3.5 centimeters tall from top to bottom.

Once the plastic object is created or purchased, it can be placed upside down on a phone that is open to full screen mode on a YouTube hologram projection video.
