I believe the easiest way to achieve this effect would be to create the hologram within its own project, or perhaps in Photoshop or After Effects. Then, you would export it as a video file (or image) and import it into the project you wish to have the hologram on, setting it to either a Screen or Add composite mode.

Well, if you tell me how to make this effect I might be able to take a look at it and see if I can help.

I agree with D. Stazz. The tedious part is going to be tracking where the hologram will be (desk, arm, etc).
