Here’s How Magical A 3D iPhone Would Be In Real Life [Video]



Deep down in my soul, I want to believe that Apple is going to come out with a holographic iPad and iPhone someday just so I can watch three dimensional Lady Gaga dance parties unfold in Lilliputian fashion. CES totally sold me on the idea, and even if we have to wait 15 years for a holographic iPad, I’m cool with that.

LA-based 3D artist Mike Ko decided to take it up a notch though, and envisioned what it would be like if three dimensional objects could blossom into life from the iPhone’s screen. Objects like, say, a miniature city with whimsical little cars zipping around the streets. Check out Mike’s iPhone 3D video masterpiece below and let us know what you think.

Hero Academy would kick so much butt on this thing! Mike says the video took around 3 months to finish as his graduation project for Otis College of Art & Design. He used Maya, After Effects and Pftrack for all the 3D animations and shot it on a Canon T2i. Pretty nice work for someone who’s just finishing up at college. Maybe someone at Pixar will see it and get Mike a gig working for Steve’s animation studio.
