***MASSIVE UPDATE***
8bitapp Hellagraph Edition was just released for iPad. You can use it to generate holographs from 8bit drawings, your own photos, or over 450 oldschool 8bit characters. Available now for $1.99 on iPad.
***END MASSIVE UPDATE***

Use your webcam or DSLR camera to capture 8bit holographs that are made with your iPhone/iPad. Simply type in your message, add 8bit space invader characters, choose colors, adjust exposure time, and set depth. You then slide your iPhone/iPad slowly to either side to capture the holograph with your camera.

The app also features pausing and vibrate cues (vibrate on iPhone/iPod touch) to tell you when the screen is dark. I use this feature to pause an exposure and reposition for multi-line exposures. All the photos below were taken with the webcam or Nikon D80 camera with the exposure time set for long exposures. I made sure that the area is well lit to show how versatile the app is with lighting levels.

FREE WEBCAM TO CAPTURE THE IMAGES:
I also made a free downloadable webcam software that will use your computer's webcam to capture the exposure (so you don't have a $1000+ camera as a prerequisite). http://8bitapp.com

I wrote this application using 8-bit methods strictly in HTML5 and Javascript. It was written while commuting to work on the LA METRO Gold Line.

Tell all of your 8bit crew to buy this! I'm in this for the fact that your contributions get me an array of i-devices to scale up 8bit holographs to tens of feet...
This application is available for iPad iPhone and Android Devices. If you want something for a huge device contact me and I'll make it.
If you want to request an 8bit character feel free to contact me with your idea at alex@8bitapp.com.

I'm a supergeek. I spend the 9-5 at a top-secret mountain laboratory and the 5-2 doing creative stuff like this to feed my inner nerd.

***I'm trying to scale the holographs up to 10 feet tall and viewable by the naked eye. See more at my kickstarter ( http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/alexsmith/ten-foot-holographs-visible-to-the-naked-eye )***
