Here’s a fun new toy to try for the holidays: Holographium for iOS devices. Find yourself a decent digital camera capable of long exposures, load up some cute text on your iOS device, and then watch as you magically turn it into 3D Extruded text floating in physical space.
Magically transform text and graphics into thousands of luminous 3D cross section scans, and extrude them in a long exposure photograph.
Got a digital camera which is capable of taking long exposure photographs of at least 3 seconds? Then you will love Holographium!
Available now in both a Lite Free version and paid $3.99 version.

The bottom part of the visualization shows the number of downloads as a blue area, and the rate of downloads as a line. The pattern in the background has an edge every six hours, so two gray and two white stripes make up one day. The top view is a circular view, with one full round around the circle representing one day. The gray wedges correspond to the gray stripes in the bottom view, plus there are additional lines for each hour to make comparison easier. The lines are color-coded by the day, so the corresponding data in both views can be identified.
No surprise to see a cyclical shape in the visualization, people download more during daylight that midnight of course, but the the circular graph is a clever way of displaying it.
See all the details, with links to download the data yourself, on his site.
