A Japanese man posted a YouTube video showing a real hologram created using a prism crystal, bits of cardboard, and his iPhone. The video shows a holographic Siri dancing around inside the prism, which can be viewed from different perspectives as the camera moves around the prism. The best part? The setup is so simple,

While the design (and even the briefing slides) scream affordable, we’re sure there must be some Big Magenta customers aching for a keenly-priced smartphone fix. So here’s the Prism. Huawei‘s behind that T-Mobile face, cooking up a Android Gingerbread phone with a pretty weedy 600MHz processor and a 3.5-inch (480 x 320) touchscreen. A fixed-focus (yeah) 3.2-megapixel camera pokes out the back, while a microSD slot means you can extend space for those vaguely-almost-in-focus shots — the Prism arrives with a 2GB card already onboard. The phone looks set for a May 6th release date and TmoNews has several more slides with some extra launch details — you can check them out at the source below.
Cunning design is a wonderful thing, and this triangular bundle of smarts is almost meta! Rocketfish‘s Sound Prism is exactly what it says it is, a three-sided speaker bar with a twist (metaphorically speaking.) Inventors, CRE8 Design studio, cooked up the clever idea of using the empty space created by a folded Apple Smart Cover. This fella neatly slips into the cubby-hole of the folded case, and attaches itself magnetically. It’s Bluetooth, so can pair up with any compatible device, but won’t look quite so snug as when used as nature — or rather its creators — intended. How much for a slice of the Pythagorean action? That’ll be 80 rectangular dollars, sir.
Thanks to leaked inventory documents, we’ve already known that Huawei’s Prism would grace its way onto T-Mobile’s shores. Now that its certification papers have been put through the wringers at the FCC, we can plainly see that the handset will be marketed as the T-Mobile Prism. While little is known about the device — dubbed internally as the U8651T (or Astro) — we’re able to glean that it supports quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE, along with UMTS/HSPA connectivity on the 1900MHz, 1700MHz and 850MHz bands. We also discovered AGPS, 802.11b/g/n (WiFi) and Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR thrown in for good measure, along with microSD support and a 1,400mAh battery — that last tidbit safely excludes this handset from being a rebadge of one of Huawei’s high-end offerings.
