I would.

Imagine your pics and vids like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y60mfBvXCj8

I think a free app that let users convert their pics and vids to this type of display woudl be more engaging for Primary students, YM/YW students, and adults - basically for those students who have a hard time focusing and concentrating for 3 hours (which is basically all of us).

It's hard to see these types of holograms (especially to a degree of detail that would be needed for an effective visual aid) unless the lights are dimmed or turned off completely. I don't think it's quite there yet for in-classroom use.

Thank you, Bro Bradshaw. I think you're right.

Do you think there is, somewhere between Oculus Rift/Google Cardboard and a small inverted pyramid converting a youtube video to a hologram, some tech that woudl both enlarge and project (even if in reduced detail/pixels) hologram and 3D-converted images?

I don't know enough about the current virtual reality or hologram technology to have any leads, unfortunately.
