If you have a friend who's fascinated by hologram technology, loves unique photography, or who deserves a one-of-a-kind gift, consider giving them a 3D holographic present. A hologram is a two-dimensional image that, through careful photography and photo processing, is made to look like a three-dimensional figure, complete with shading and perspective.
For Magic Lovers
For friends who love magic, choose a 3D hologram chamber. Shaped like a flattened oval, this chamber has mirrored inside panels. Place a small object inside and a holographic image is projected from the chamber's top. Your friend will be amazed at how real the image looks, and may be tempted to reach out an touch it, only to realise what they're seeing is an illusion. Three-dimensional hologram projectors are perfect for people who love illusions and gags. You can find them online or in museum gift shops.
For Home Decorators
Give a three-dimensional photograph for a birthday present or holiday gift. A number of online retailers sell pre-made holographic posters. For a one-of-a-kind gift, you can also get a hologram custom-made. Choose a special item that your friend would enjoy, then contact an online holographic photographer to create a lifelike image for your friend to treasure.
Know someone creative, someone who wants to make their mark on the world? Help your artist friends see their work in a new light with 3D holographic glasses. Not just for use with holograms, these glasses will give new depth to any piece of artwork. While wearing these glasses, some colours around will appear to float, while others will sink, providing a new way of seeing things. Creative friends will be inspired to create new types of artwork, and will enjoy seeing old projects in three dimensions.
