Turn your favorite character into a hologram! Strap a PyPortal to a continuous rotation servo and watch in awe. With a few edits and some formatting, you'll have floating animations in no time.

In this guide we'll go through an example of our own animation starring Blinka, the CircuitPython mascot.

We have a custom 3D printed enclosure you can use as a "vertical holder" which attaches to the servo.

To display the graphics and project onto the hologram module, you can also use a smart phone, or tablet, however you won't be able to attach to the servo to rotate freely
