Hand-drawn holograms.I've stumbled across a technique for drawing holograms directly upon a plastic plate by hand. It sounds impossible, but I've been sitting on the livingroom sofa making holographic images of floating polyhedra, words, 3D starfields, opaque objects, etc. No laser, no isolation table, no darkroom, no expensive film plates. This takes nothing more than a compass and some scraps of plexiglas. Too cool, if I say so myself!

But are they actually holograms? The process has been published
, and the author has a pretty good analysis of why the answer is "yes, they are."
Evidently others are also working with this method
How can this have been around since 1995? Really? Jeez, where have I been?
