    A little glitchy and the holograms need a little bit more work

    The app works well and very interesting.

I saw some news about Holo about 4 months ago: if you havent read about it, here is @laurengoode from The Verge: Inside 8i, the VR company trying to take holographic videos to the mainstream where they announced a $27M Series B lead by Time Warner Investments.

Hi all, we just released Holo globally on iOS and Android. Holo lets you add holograms of real people and animals into your world and take photos & videos to share with friends. With Holo, you can: - Create funny and unique content by adding a Holo character into your camera and snapping a photo or video. - Choose from a variety of holograms including movie characters, celebrities, athletes, musicians and comedians, as well as fun original characters and animals. - Adjust the hologram by resizing, moving, or rotating it, even while recording your Holo. - Save your Holo videos and photos to your phone's gallery, and share with friends. Holograms at launch include: Spider-Man: Homecoming, Debby Ryan, Matt Steffanina, Fall Out Boy’s infamous llama, Magic Mike Live dancers, go90 stars, and a variety of original characters (including a convincing Trump impersonator) and animals. We're eager to see what you make with Holo (tag: #thisisholo). And look forward to your feedback. cheers, Amy p.s. A bit of background on 8i... our technology transforms video of human performances into volumetric video (aka 3D holograms) that look real and have true volume so they're viewable from any angle, on any device for virtual, augmented or mixed reality.

I had a chance to meet the 8i team at VidCon and I just want to say not only is this a great product, it's a great group of people.
