    Hi

    While experimenting with the video settings on my iPhone I discovered a way to display High Definition footage using the small screen and the accelerometers. I filmed how to do it and put the video up on youtube here:

    I hope you find this interesting even if you have found this feature already.

    I tried doing it with a YouTube video on my iPhone 3GS and it doesn't work.

    What you showed in your video is amazing, but can "we" do the same thing?

    I left you a 5 rating because it's 3D in appearance. I'd like to be able to do that too. Is it possible? If so, anything I need to know?

    I would turn to your left, and flip the Sarcasm switch on.

    You actually think we have the ability to project a hologram above the display and interact with and change the outcome of the PRE-RECORDED VIDEO (flicking the juggling balls away, for example)?


    EDIT: I'd like the hear the ages of the people who fell for this.

    You need to goto Settings > General and switch the "Holographic Effects" setting to On.

    I GOT IT WORKING!



    It showed me the plans to the Death Star and I was able to direct Luke to the proper firing coordinates.

    Well, I'm 15, and I didn't fall for it.

    I mean, I thought that it was real, until the hologram came on.

    But no, I didn't fall for that.

    I'm 5, so maybe that's why I'm so gullible.

    I apologize for making you read my posts. :eek:

    My phone won't do it. I called Apple and have scheduled a meeting at the Genius bar. Yet another defective unit.

    My friends Pre can do multiple holograms at once while his hi-def records.

    Pretty cool video must have taken quite a bit of work to make especially the bit where he is waving the phone around and getting different bits of video display.
