Will Tamblyn and Gavin Smith are mates. When they hang out, they make things. It’s what they do.
A few years ago, they challenged themselves to create a 3D holographic projector, a piece of tech that only existed in science fiction.
They set about building a prototype using an unlikely collection of items: grandad’s lawn mower, an electric drill, gaffer tape, laser pointers, old projectors, a kettle and a sweet potato. Before long they’d managed to make a small cube of light float in mid-air. They’d created their first voxel (think pixel with volume). Now they needed to make more.
