The Hologram 9000 is a machine found in The Best Burger in the World. Whilst cleaning out Skips' garage, Mordecai and Rigby find the machine under a white cloth. They use it to make holograms of themselves, Hologram-Mordecai and Hologram-Rigby.
To produce a hologram, the person who is being copied needs to step inside the glass dome. A person on the outside picks one of the five settings for the hologram:
- Extremely realistic
- Very realistic
- Slightly real
- Fake looking
A metal circle then scans the person with red beams, which according to Rigby, is very painful. If the person does not stand still, then the hologram fails. A copy of the person then comes out on a flat green slide if the hologram is done correctly. The holograms only come alive when knocked over, and can only be destroyed by being smashed by objects (such as rocks). It is possible for the Hologram 9000 to cause death.
The Hologram 9000 is primarily a large glass dome with a door. It has various pieces of machinery coming out of it on top, with two black tubes connecting to the dome and a steel dome that produces the holograms. The glass dome is set on top of a round base and has a panel on it to change the level of realism of the hologram. It is a head taller than Mordecai.
