GE’s do-it-yourself hologram is electrifying

Here's a really stellar bit of creativity that might have gotten overlooked amid the frenzy of Super Bowl ad gimmicks. To promote its "Smart Grid technology," GE created a sort of Webcam hologram. Just follow these instructions to make your own "augmented reality," as seen above. (You'll need a printer, Webcam and microphone.) I just dare you to show this trick to co-workers without blowing their fragile minds. Oh, and the Smart Grid Web site's pretty slick, too. Thanks to Gregory Ng for pointing this out.
