As it turns out, the trick lies in a hologram display fan.
How the Demon Slayer hologram fan works
In an Instagram post from July 2021, user @holofanco showed off their Tanjirō figurine on a kitchen counter. The magic starts when a hologram fan is switched on, and its blades spin to produce a holographic animation of Tanjirō’s water slashing technique.
Despite its name, the hologram fan does not actually display a 3D hologram – it’s an illusion caused by rapidly spinning fan blades equipped with programmable LED lights.

Since LED lights can never light up in black, when users program the fan to display an image or video with a black background, it will appear as if it’s holographic.
Some hologram LED fans can even be connected to a speaker, taking projections to the next level.
How to create your own hologram displays

Before deciding the size of the hologram fan to purchase, measure the height of your figurine. Make sure that the fan will be big enough for your figurine.
Some hologram fans have a cover that reduces the noise from the fan and serves as protection. However, it reduces the “mid-air” holographic effect.

Although there are many different types of hologram display fans, most of them work similarly. Just connect your phone or laptop to the fan via Wi-Fi and upload your own videos and images to the fan display.
