Janna gave me a wonderful present last night: Jack The Cat immortalized forever in a ten-pound 3D Hologram cube of optical glass. Jack hasn’t been feeling well — he’s doing better now — so it was a delight to see Jack-in-the-Cube’s glimmering face looking back at me in a 3D Hologram.
The amazing 3D Hologram technology is by Looxis.
You submit a photo for scanning — you can also sit live and have your face scanned — and Looxis does the rest.
Your cube can be viewed in natural light — an eerie and exhausting experience — or you can buy a multi-color LED carousel that will turn your hefty cube and light it up with a kaleidoscope of glittering color.
You can actually see the details of Jack’s fur as the cube turns. Forgive the ugly quality of these iPhone images. The glass shimmers as Jack’s face floats before you:
You can also sit for a live scan:
The Looxis software with contour you in a 3D Hologram:
The Vitrolux laser will then, incredibly, engrave your craven image inside the optical cube in four minutes.
The Looxis 3D Hologram Optical Cube isn’t a cheap process. Our store was running a special — Buy One, Get One Half Off — so Janna and I each have our own Jack-in-the-Cube and the total price was around $450.00USD for both cubes and two rotating rainbow carousels.
A better gift was never given.
