HOLHO - Smartphone Hologram Generator

HOLHO. It's like a portmanteau of Holla! and Jai Ho! And the contraption is an Italian design, so we've got some real cultural diversity going on here in the world of holograms. A pyramid-shaped structure that sits on top of or underneath smartphones and tablets, HOLHO gathers selected screen images and projects them onto its 4 walls to generate a hologram floating harmoniously in the center. Look at that one there of the earth. Beautifully suspended in peace. Haha. What an optical illusion. The HOLHO Phone Pyramid and HOLHO Pad Pyramid function similarly: they divide a selected flat image into 4 parts, and then use the physics of reflection and tomfoolery to generate the appearance of a hovering, three-dimensional object. HOLHO Pyramids for smartphones suit Android and iOS, and those for tablets fit both 7" and 10" devices.

A third and fourth style, the HOLHO Zed and HOLHO 3 Faces Pyramid were each made for 10" tablets. The first is a "Z" shape with a transparent photo frame and holographic modifications for pictures, and the second, which caters to commercial needs and demonstrations, is more of a "C" shape, with a top drawer for tablet housing and the hologram projected in the center.
HOLHOs operate with their complementary (as in symbiotic, not free) apps, which allow users to produce videos for holographic projection. Maker Imagination Farm has also released--and will continue to generate--its own series of image videos for users to beam into the Pyramid.
HOLHO smartphone and tablet hologram cookers seek Kickstarter funding through September 24, 2013. Pledge levels are available for all 4 models.

LG’s first flexible OLED phone due before the year is out

LG plans to launch a flexible OLED smartphone before the end of the year, the company’s VP of mobile has confirmed, though it’s unclear to what extent the work-in-progress handset will actually flex. The OLED panel in question is the handiwork of LG Display according to VP of LG mobile Yoon Bu-hyun, the WSJ  reports, with the proposed device set to launch sometime in Q4. LG Display’s work on flexible OLEDs has been underway for some time, though the company’s efforts have perhaps been overshadowed somewhat by rival Samsung’s YOUM development. Last year, according to a Korea Times report, LG Display was preparing for

Syrian Electronic Army claims credit for CBS Twitter accounts hack

Yesterday, several of CBS ’s Twitter accounts were hacked, including its main account, and its accounts for 60 Minutes, 48 Hours, and CBS Denver. The hackers got into the account and tweeted a series of things relating to President Obama and the United States being in cahoots with Al-Qaeda . The tweets also had links that led users to malware-infested sites. While CBS was able to regain access to its accounts, it was unable to figure out who was behind the attacks, until now. The Syrian Electronic Army , the same group that hacked 3 of the BBC’s Twitter accounts, claimed

Can Technology Do a Better Job of Finding Bombs?

 With the horrifying images of the Boston Marathon bombing still much too fresh in our minds, and with citywide marathons coming up this weekend in London, Hamburg, and Salt Lake City , law enforcement officers and citizens everywhere are asking how to prevent the tragedy from being repeated. As Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs adjunct professor Abraham Wagner observed last year, on the 11th anniversary of 9/11, there’s “no magic bullet o
