This is a to scale replica of the Imagecaster Holoprojector, from Star Wars. This model of holoprojector was typically used in Episode 1. This device allows you the ability to talk to someone through hologram images. The blue guy on the Imagecaster is a hologram.
Very neat design. It looks very accurate, even down to the color. As for that, the full body is a projection reorded by a mounted unit, such as R2D2's. For handhelds, it only shows a projection of the head and shoulders. ^Blub^
Very neat! And to answer phipson, because most(possibly all) of the time they are talking to someone who isn't using the handheld one(in the movies anyway), and the handheld one they are holding doesn't capture itself, for some reason.
So my question is, when the image is projected of the full person standing there, why doesn't it show him holding a holo of himself... holding a holo of himself... holding a... you get the point. Sorry, just my sci-fi dorkgene coming out there. Nice build. I would have liked to have seen it studless at this scale but still, really nice. Go team Christenson! 4 points. ~ Chris.
