Thanks to the guys over at Peerindex, a couple of weeks ago I received notification that I was eligible to enter to win a 3D hologram of the new Ford B-Max.
As a “shot to nothing” I entered and was subsequently surprised when I received notification that I had won.
Fast forward a couple of weeks and a large parcel arrived at home. I was taken aback at just how large the parcel was. In fact it didn’t enter my mind that it was the hologram.
Anyway, upon opening it, I was very pleased to see that it was indeed the hologram…… a 3D hologram at that!
So, to the unboxing. Packaging opened, the hologram was presented in a black box, sporting the B-Max logo.
Opening the box, the hologram sat underneath a protective tissue layer. Underneath the hologram was a seemingly very good quality torch and spare batteries.
The torch was preset to a wide beam setting, ensuring the best experience when using it to view the hologram.
Naturally, without the light source shining at the hologram it appeared as a glossy black plastic sheet. As soon as the torch was shone on it, however, the B-Max was instantly visible.
I was blown away by the quality of the hologram, the B-Max springing up from the sheet in surprising detail. The depth of the hologram was also very impressive. Shifting the light source allows the B-Max to be viewed from different angles.
I’ll try and get some video to give a better view and perspective.
Update: Youtube has more than enough video clips of the hologram in action. Here’s a good one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpqA9fWY7cg&feature=youtube_gdata_player
The boys are loving it and are intrigued by the image, reaching their hands into the 3D hologram as though they could explore the interior of the car.
If you use Peerindex and have the chance to enter this competition, go for it. It’s impressive. I read somewhere that they cost around $300 a pop (I’ve no idea if that is true). They certainly are very good quality and fascinating to play around with.
