Every Star Wars fan understands the importance of a hologram – those messages could mean life or death in a galaxy far, far away.  For years, optical engineers have been trying to create freestanding holograms – three-dimensional images created with lasers – and have achieved some success, like the virtual image of Tupac Shakur at Coachella 2012 or, more recently, the hologram of French presidential candidate Jean-Luc Melenchon.

All joints are press/interference fit (no glue). The part printed slightly smaller than the CAD file so I had to spend about 5 minutes...
