Screen Hack Turns Your Cellphone Screen into a Multidimensional Display

With this simple hack you can turn any LCD screen into a multidimensional display capable of showing 3D hologram-like images.

This DIY design is simply a cheap homemade version of the i3DG multiplane screen add-on. How does it work? You place the plastic add-on–in this case it is made from some scrap plastic left over from the hard plastic shell products are packaged in–over the screen and each panel within the add-on reflects a portion of the specialized video, creating the illusion of depth.

Check out the video to see it in action and then hit up the link below to check out the discussion thread on the construction of the screen.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
