Try to Touch the Object that Appears on Top of the Optical Mirage Disc - There's Nothing There!
"Seeing is believing." A cliche, perhaps, but it accurately describes the compelling 3D illusions produced by Mirage. Mirage produces a small, full-color hologram of natural, lifelike appearance, allowing 360-degree viewing.
To achieve these effects, the Mirage utilizes a patented technology of two concealed, opposing parabolic mirrors. In overall appearance, Mirage resembles a small wok with a 2-inch circular opening in the top. The physical object to be converted to a hologram is placed in the concave center of the bottom mirror. A hologram instantly projects up through this aperature, appearing to the viewer as a truly solid object.
The marvels of this nine inch diameter device are numerous:
It is powered by ambient light
No film is neccessary
Objects are rendered in full, natural color
Objects may be easily changed
Objects display lifelike, 3-D appearance
Viewable from 360 degrees
No skill or training needed to operate it
