A holographic print ad

Porsche and Cramer-Krasselt create images that jump off the page (and they're surprisingly crisp).

On paper, a Porsche doesn’t look any more impressive than a typical sports car, so agency Cramer-Krasselt made a print ad that brings the new 911 model off the page and into our 3D world by allowing you to project it as a hologram.

When we say hologram, we don’t mean those cheesy little cards you’d get in a cereal box that changes the image when you turn it. The four-page spread (which is in the latest issue of Fast Company, if you’d like to track it down in real life) doesn’t look like anything special at first glance, but it comes with a simple piece of plastic that can be folded into a prism. By visiting a link to a specially-crafted video on a tablet and placing the prism on it, the images are projected as a hologram floating above the screen.

What this simple piece of plastic does for holograms is what Google Cardboard did for VR. Now that you no longer need expensive equipment to project a (surprisingly crisp) image in 3D, we’d be surprised if others don’t start finding their own ways to get these projectors into our consumer hands.
