Smartphones cannot create true holograms. You need to be aware of this fact and you will not be disappointed. The problem with hologram apps is that they will either be a fun game or they will need some external pyramid to project a hologram.
Now that we have clarified what to expect from hologram apps for Android and iOS, we can go forward and present to you a list of 10 best hologram apps that you can download for your device from either Play Store or App Store.
Ready? Let’s begin…
Available on both Android and iOS
The four apps listed as cross-compatible apps are not at all highly rated apps. They don’t stand up to the expectations of holograms popping out of screen. So, set your expectations right.
1. Dino Park Hologram Simulator
- Wire-mesh diagrams of some dinosaurs that can do some jittering movements on touch and create some sounds.
- Selecting a dinosaur will turn on the phone camera and make the dinosaur appear in air even though it is actually visible on phone screen.
- Touching the dinosaur diagram will make it move slightly and make some sounds. That’s all!
2. Holo – Holograms in Augmented Reality
- It allows placing hologram characters to the image when you point your phone camera to something or someone.
- You can click the image of the real world with the animated hologram figure that is made using Augmented Reality. So, you eventually get a mix of hologram and reality.
- The app also allows you to take hologram added selfies.
3. Holapex Hologram Video Maker
- You can make a hologram video out of a video from your phone’s gallery.
- You can also make a hologram video out of a simple photo stored in your phone.
What do you do with that hologram video? You play it and use a proper hologram pyramid to see the hologram. Yes, you will need a separate pyramid to make the hologram video work the way you want it to work.
4. Hologram Kitten 3D Stimulator
- Offers 3D wire-mesh kittens.
- Select a kitten image and the app will fire up the phone’s camera and make the kitten appear to be in air.
Plain and simple, it is just a game. So, don’t expect anything real.
