iHologram for iPhone creator pleads guilty to faking it

Well, it sure was fun while it lasted. But you know what they say, all good things must come to an end. But really, did you even believe for a second that the recently highly publicized app called iHologram for iPhone and iPod Touch was real?

If you did, well, sorry to burst your bubble but we’ve got word that iHologram is nothing but a fake. It’s confirmed straight from the horse’s mouth, so to speak.

Apparently, iHologram is the product of one creative “ideas person” who was able to illustrate the whole thing as it was envisioned in his mind:

The iHologram has become one of the All time most popular videos on Vimeo in the space of a day, and is currently on the front page of almost every technology site… I’m getting way too many emails about it, so for those who had to know:

The iHologram app was not real. It was an illustration of an idea I had which I believe could work with the technology (combining anamorphosis and motion sensing). Unfortunately I’m just an ideas person, and I can show how things should look, but I’m no hardcore programmer.

I’d be happy to collaborate with a developer or studio who want’s to make it happen, I’m bursting with ideas for the interactive world, but right now all my attention is on filmmaking.

The person at fault says he did not mean to fool anyone, and hopes that his work will inspire the real devs to at least try to make it happen, if it’s possible at all. Everybody back to normal again, then.
