The 'Help Me Obi' Exhibition Comprises Hologram-Like 3D Projections

'Help Me Obi' is a visually spectacular hologram-inspired art installation put together by artists Chris Helson and Saraj Jackets, who are seeking a patent for their technology. The whimsically and somewhat irreverently named installation projects large objects -- some as large as 30 centimeters wide -- in space.

The objects projected as part of the Help Me Obi installation are visible from every angle. They include a newborn baby and the NASA Voyager 1 space probe.

The projected objects are not holograms in the strictest sense however, but are actually 360-degree video objects. This means that it's essentially a floating 3D movie rather than a true holographic object that you can examine from all sides.

The installation will be on display at the Alt-W exhibition in Edinburgh, Scotland between July 31 and August 30.
