Zebra Imaging is a company established to develop and provide the best technologies and products for 3D visual communications. Using state-of-the-art technology, the company has succeeded in producing and delivering the most innovative 3D holographic products and technology in the world. Recently Zebra Imaging made a licensing rights agreement with the Walt Disney Company, and started manufacturing 3D holograms based on famous scenes from the Star Wars movies.
Zebra Imaging were kind enough to send us the awesome looking bottom-lit display designed to look like Darth Vader, plus 2 full-parallax 3D holograms – Death Star Battle and Kylo Ren.
First it’s worth mentioning that Zebra Imaging is the only company in the world that offers digital holograms that are autostereoscopic, full-parallax and full-color. This means that you don’t need any glasses or goggles to see the 3D image, and you can view it from different angles.
So, as I mentioned above, we’ve received the bundle with the bottom-lit display and the Death Star Battle + an extra 3D hologram with Kylo Ren. The cover of the bundle is very stylish looking with the Star Wars logo on a black and gray background. The display unit and the hologram are packed inside in two separate boxes.
The display unit comes with a power adapter and USB cable, and is pretty easy to set up. Just plug it in the socket and the lamp will light up. The display has a clean design made to resemble Darth Vader’s helmet. The only concern I have with it is that it is a bit large and heavy, and you might have a hard time finding a place for it on your display shelf. However, the unit is really sturdy and stays firm on the surface you put it on, so its bulky size is understandable. Also the main unit has to counterweight the holograms that you put on the other end, and last but not least the unit has enough space to put your holograms over its soft main body which can serve as a storage for them. The unit’s dimensions are 11.5” X 13.1” X 1/8 “ 0.5 lbs.
The holograms come in a separate box. They have a very nice looking black gloss acrylic finish with a huge Star Wars logo on the back side that I really loved.
Once you power up the display, you just put the hologram in and you are good to go. The effect is really impressive. Without using any glasses, you have a stunning 3D image from your favorite movie in your room. I have to admit that the Battle Star Battle hologram had a much bigger depth than the Kylo Ren one. With the former, you have objects popping out of the image, while with the latter, they sink deep within, but again creating a spectacular 3D effect.
There is one important thing that we have to mention. Not any photo or video of this product look even close to the real thing, no matter how good it is. The 3D effect is just plain when photographed or filmed. You really have to see it with your own eyes to fully experience the 3D effect.
The price of the Death Star Battle – Hologram bundle is $250 (includes Zebra Imaging 3D Hologram Display priced @ $200 + Death Star Battle Hologram $125). Once you have the 3D Hologram Display you will be able to use it to display the other Star Wars Holograms like Kylo Ren and many more coming soon. Each additional hologram costs $125. At this time this product is only available in the Unites States and Canada. Also in the next few weeks Zebra Imaging will be offering all the scenes as $250 start bundles. You can purchase the holograms through Amazon and can be purchased with amazon Prime delivery.
Overall, this is a very unique product, offering some stunning images from the galaxy far, far away in your home without the need of 3D glasses. It really looks great and I can’t wait to see what other Star Wars scenes will be immortalized as 3D holograms. The price is a bit steep, but this is a new technology and I am sure we can expect more affordable options in the future.
