Meet Holographium, the next-generation light painting machine with a twist!
Holographium slices text or images into thousands of luminous 3D cross section scans, and projects them over time on a long exposure photograph.

The result is mind-blowing: Your digital camera captures a glowing, hovering "hologram" with real-world reflections!
Check out for a demo video and examples!

Holographium is ideal for anyone interested in light painting.

Note: It requires an additonal digital camera. It works great with cameras from Canon, Sony, Nikon or any other brand.
Before you buy, please make sure you can take long exposure photographs of at least 3 seconds.

Good app now that I know how to use it!

Instructions are NOT clear! You use this app for light painting - meaning you need to use your own camera! Set your DSLR/SLR on a slow shutter speed, in the dark, then move your iPhone across room (or whatever you're taking a pic of) while using the app. The hologram photo will be on your camera, not phone.

Instructions are not clear

No idea what this is really supposed to do or how it works. The instructions are confusing. Although I experimented with it, I couldn't get it to work. Deleting since this appears useless.

It's awesome what you can do, I even put a picture and it worked, it's entertaining, it definitely works how it says it does if you do it correctly, easy to learn how to use it
