Among the most popular tutorial videos explaining how anyone can construct their own hologram chamber comes from YouTube user "MrWhoseTheBoss."

As he explains, all you'll need is a CD case, an x-acto knife, graph paper, tape, and a pen. Cut out four identical trapezoid shapes from the CD case, tape them together, and you're good to go. You'll also need a smartphone, of course, but the videos that fuel the 3-D effect are widely available for free on YouTube.

Gathered below are a few examples from hologram enthusiasts who posted their results to social media websites like Twitter, Instagram, and Vine.
