About this project
PRODUCTION&DESIGN MADE IN ITALY!
HOLHO is one of the smallest and most original holographic Pyramid on the market. It works with all smartphones or tablets, doesn't matter the brand..
It has 4 faces that allow you to project a holographic picture in 360°. The smartphone can be placed below .. or above the Pyramid..
This is how it works: the image to be projected is divided in 4 distinct images, and is reflected on the 4 faces of the pyramid creating an hologram in the center.
HOLHO COLLECTION will be produced just in BLACK. Only HOLHO FULL PYRAMID (tablet and smartphone) comes in different colours: GREEN, RED, BLUE, FUCHSIA, BLACK , WHITE. You can make your choice before the end of the project.
We designed two HOLHO Full Pyramids you can use with your 7" or 10" tablet. The image is divided in 4 parts and when projected on the 4 oblique faces, it produces the hologram in the center.
The TABLET can be positioned above or below the Pyramid:
HOLHO Naked is the simplest product of the HOLHO collection. It consists of an oblique sidewall that you can adapt to your 10" tablet, allowing you to have a frontal holographic projection.
Your device needs to be inserted at the base of the structure. HOLHO Naked can be used with all 10" tablets. Also, if you close it, it becomes a very stylish tablet case.
HOLHO Zed is a very nice black Perspex device, with a spot on the top to place your tablet. It generates a holographic frontal projection. You can choose between the 7" and the 10" version.
HOLHO ZED for 7" and 10” TABLETS.
(without led and picture stand)
HOLHO ZED for 10” TABLETS with a PICTURE STAND and
This version of the HOLHO ZED 10” TABLET has a transparent photo stand - where you can insert a real picture - with a white LED to light the image.
Using the videos we prepared for you, this HOLHO ZED structure becomes a unique photo frame, where the animation enhances your photo. It works with all 10" tablets.
HOLHO 3 Faces Pyramid is a very nice shiny black structure with a top drawer for the 10" tablet and an easy plug jack. The image is divided in three. When projected into the 3 Faces Pyramid, the hologram appears in the center.
It is perfect for commercial use too: HOLHO 3 Faces Pyramid can be an amazing exhibitor or a perfect product demonstrator.
The HOLHO APP 3 FACES allows you to make a video able to produce a holographic projection. The APP divides the video in 3 parts, adapting them to the 3 Faces Pyramid. We recommend you to produce your video with dark background to better enhance the result of the hologram.
HOLHO APP FULL PYRAMID
The HOLHO APP FULL PYRAMID allows you to produce a video for a holographic projection. The app divides the video in 4 parts for projection on the FULL PYRAMID. We recommend you to produce your video with dark background to better enhance the result of the hologram and with all figure subjects.
Every week the HOLHO team is making new videos for you to use with the HOLHO COLLECTION. At the end of the project, you will be able to choose your favorites.
VIDEO PERSONALIZATION - 3D rotating cube:650 $
If you send us videos and pictures about you we will made a personalized video for you.
VIDEO PERSONALIZATION: 1.700 $
including one HOLHO FULL PYRAMID (smartphone or tablet) and the HOLHO APP.
We can make a 30" video editing your Company logo, supers and pictures using the motion graphic animation. Accordingly to your brief and our proposal we will produce a video tailored for you and we will adapt it to the device you choose. (OUR PARTNER: http://www.moviefarm.it)
VIDEO PERSONALIZATION : 5.000 $
including one HOLHO FULL PYRAMID (smartphone or tablet) and the HOLHO APP.
You are already a HOLHO owner and you are pre-ordering a 30" video made editing your Company logo, supers and pictures using the motion graphic animation and the 3D (your product basic animation). Accordingly to your brief and our proposal we will produce a video tailored for you and we will adapt it to the device you choose. (OUR PARTNER: http://www.moviefarm.it)
Why are we asking for 58,000 dollars?
To make Holho, we have to produce at least 3 different specific steel molds that are very expensive. Also, the Perspex that we use for our Pyramid is a very expensive raw material that we have to order in advance to be able to produce the product. Perspex needs to be ordered in different colors in pre-set quantities. Last but not least, we need to prepare a variety of cool videos to play on your devices. Therefore we have to invest in creating the videos , editing them in 3D and Motion Graphic. Any funds that remain will be invested in further product research and development.

Risks and challenges
We've built many pyramide prototypes and figured out how to produce all collection. We are currently screening suppliers so we can get all the components crafted to our standard and on schedule.
Everything will be ready and shipped as promised within the end of November regarding the EARLY BIRDS and before the 20th of December regarding the rest.
If we will have a tremendous success ;-) we have to fix a new delivery date regarding the extra backers..
All smartphones (standard sizes, IOS and Android) and all tablets 10” and 7”, any brand. Do you have an extra-large smartphone? Well, if we receive enough requests we will launch a new size HOLHO phone!!
I remind you that the App is not coming with the Holho Collection but it's something you can pledge if you pre-order a Pyramid (with Zed and Naked it is not necessary). The APP is important if you want to produce your own videos because it splits the image in 3 or 4 (pyramids collection). The final price , after the KS launch, will be higher. You will receive the APP a little bit before your device so that you can generate your contributes before.. The APP works anyway also if your background is not the perfect one but it works much better with a dark background as you can see from my demos.
Important Note: the Holho App is not transforming your subjects in 3D subjects!!
• COLORS: WHAT COLORS WILL BE HOLHO COLLECTION BE AVAILABLE IN?
HOLHO Naked, Zed and 3 Faces Pyramid are available only in black. HOLHO phone and HOLHO Pad are available in: black, white, orange, green, violet and blue.
• WHAT KIND OF HOLOGRAM QUALITY CAN I EXPECT?
The hologram faithfully replicates the quality of the image you're projecting. The Zed device is projecting exactly like the Pyramid : 2D or 3D according to the original image coming from your tablet.
• IS THE QUALITY OF THE PROJECTION THE SAME FOR ALL THE DEVICES?
The quality of the projection is the same in all devices.
• WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ALL THE DEVICES?
Each device produces it's own visual effect which differs in a subtle way from the others. The users can choose their preferred type of visual effect. This is illustrated in our demo.
• CAN I PROJECT ANY IMAGE I SHOOT AS A HOLOGRAM?
You can but you have to keep in mind that you'll only get a detailed holographic projection when you shoot people or objects against a dark background. The other secret is to have your subject not touching the edges of the pyramid. With our APPs you can adapt your scene, splitting the image on to 3 or 4 sides of the pyramid.
• CAN I EXPECT TO SEE A HOLOGRAM LIKE I'VE SEEN IN SOME SCI-FI FILMS LIKE "STAR TRECK" OR "STAR WARS"?
NO. The HOLHO hologram is an optical-visual effect, thanks to the special reflecting surface we use. The image appears in the middle of the pyramid or on the oblique surface (Zed and Naked), creating a hologram (optical illusion) in the center.
• WHAT IF I WANT MORE THAN ONE HOLHO TOOL?
Kickstarter doesn't let us include multiples of a product in a given reward tier. If you want multiple HOLHO devices, pledge the amount required for a given tier, then multiply it by the number of units you'd like.
• HOW MUCH TO THE HOLHO DEVICES WEIGH AND MEASURE?

Full Pyramid Smartphone 10x10x5 / 100
Full Pyramid Tab 7.0" 15x15x7,5 / 300

Pyramid 3 faces 32x24x22 / 3500
• HOLHO ZED WITH PICTURE STAND AND LED: TELL ME MORE ABOUT THAT..
The Holho Zed with picture stand and led is working like the other devices (projection). The Holho Zed with pictute stand allow you to place a real picture behind the reflecting surface: if you buy the Holho video frame you can have around your picture a "digital frame" generated by your tablet. In the video presentation you can see the result (the girl close-up it's a real picture!). .
• HOLHO 3 FACES PYRAMID WITH STAND AND LED: TELL ME MORE ABOUT THAT..
The Holho 3 Faces Pyramid is a very professional exhibitor and it can be used in your presentations. The tools allow you to take an object and make a video animation around it. If we have extra funds, we will soon launch the HOLHO Collection BUSINESS dedicated to companies and points-of-sale interested in technological demonstrators.
• TELL ME THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE HOLHO FULL PYRAMID AND THE HOLHO PYRAMID 3 FACES..
Well , mainly the design shape.. The visual result is pretty the same. The 3 faces Pyramid is less portable.
• VIDEOS - CHOICE AND COST
We have endeavored to keep the cost of the Pyramids and the entire Holho Collection very low, so we are trying to recover a little bit by charging extra for additional videos, which cost is, at any rate, minimal.
Regarding the videos we will post samples so you can choose the one you want (beginning of September).
• IS HOLHO LINKED WITH APPLE?
iPad, iPhone and iPod, the Apple logo and the Apple name are registered trademarks of Apple Inc. and are not affiliated with our product.
• I'M A DISTRIBUTOR AND WOULD LIKE TO CARRY THE PRODUCT. HOW DO I GET SET UP?
We're currently focusing on the Kickstarter campaign and ramping up production. If you're interested in distributing the product once we launch, send an email to HOLHOCOLLECTION@GMAIL.COM and we'll notify you once we start shipping.
• HOW CAN I SPECIFY WHERE I WANT MY REWARDS DELIVERED?
At the end of the Kickstarter campaign (end of September), we will send out a "survey" by email, using Kickstarter's Survey tool. Be sure to check your email! This will allow you to specify your shipping information. Shortly before we actually ship your reward, we will probably send out another survey, in which we double-check your order details.
• DO YOU SHIP INTERNATIONALLY?
YES, we do ship internationally. For backers outside the United States, please add the amount indicated in our rewards.
• I LIVE IN ITALY. DO I STILL NEED TO ADD FOR INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING?
NO - if you live in Milan you can collect the product from us in person If you do not live in Milan, we will charge you the national post costs.
• IF THERE ARE EXTRA-FUNDS HOW WILL YOU SPEND THEM?
We have allocated the bulk of income beyond our predicted manufacturing. Most of our predicted margin is currently allocated to possible plugging of unexpected holes where they might arise: damaged or broken parts; unexpected charges or changes in pricing; waste; cancelled or returned orders, etc. If there are still extra funds, we'll use them to increase the video content. If there are still extra funds, we'll use them to cover new Apps, and they might even help us cover the costs of coming up with new devices. We also fully intend to donate some classroom sets to schools, when the time is right.
