Hologram of a car or skyscaper.Is it possible?

  1. Jun 14, 2010 #1
    I wrote a project about holograms,but my teacher asked me kind of tricky question. Is it possible to make a hologram of a car or skyescraper?`My answer was not at the moment but probably yes in the future.But is kind a difficult to explain all physics behind this matter. Maybe someone could give me a link where i can find answer or give a short explanation. Thank you

    Why not? There are commercial rigs that can handle something the size of a car, at least in the Nova episode I saw decades ago! As for an outdoor scene like a large skyscraper, why not? My guess would be that stray light will match the frequency in use.
