Pocket Hologram is a team effort that’s started by a bunch of Makers.

We put our beloved holograms into the hands of each Maker, by producing Pocket Hologram kits that anyone can assemble.

Our team is inspired by the ubiquity of holograms and strongly believe in their future pervasiveness in our daily lives. Inspired by Microsoft’s HoloLens, our team wants to put holograms into the hands of each Maker, by producing pocket hologram kits that anyone can assemble. Once assembled, these laser cut pieces simply need to be placed above a screen that plays holographic videos off YouTube and it will instantly pull images out of that 2D world and into life like 3D.

The idea of a hologram phone is all over the internet. Anybody can create a hologram phone using a CD case.

We tried to create the same for maker fair. After successfully making the first prototype. We wanted to improve it.

We then passed the finished product to the focus group. and they liked the idea. how easy it was to make it on their own. and most off all they loved the hologram effect. they got interested and recommend using it for their art projects, school lessons, advertising etc.

Doing more research on the market. we found out that this is already in the market. but is very expensive. the cheapest we found was 9 USD. with this in mind. we tried to source for materials and process to match or cheaper than market value. with the initial design, material and laser cuting we were able to match the 9 USD target. 

With the 500 USD Seed money and initial 1000 pcs order for maker fair we started production using laser cutter machine.

We were able to make 1000 pcs of this product in 4 hours using a laser cutter for the Maker Fair.

Using Six Sigma DMAIC road map, Our engineers did Design of Experiment , Failure Mode Effect Analysis to make our products more durable. and with the help of our LEAN experts we further optimised the production process and we were able to imrove it 100% more. with this we reduced our cost to 4.5 USD. only in Kickstarter we will reward our backers with the 4.5 USD cost for the current product.

With the fund we will raise the team wants to build our own die cutter to manufacture the hologram kit. Using a die cutter will further reduce the cost.

The more we get from our backers. the more ecofriendly we can make our die cutter. Imagine Solar powered, pedal powered. we can even make a hologram making machine.

with this we can enable hologram to every maker in the world.


Risks and challenges

With the support of our sponsor Singapore Maker Association and OneMaker Group, we prototyped and improved the current hologram design. We have created 1000 Pcs of hologram for the Singapore maker Faire 2016.

With this kickstarter project we want to increase our reach to the world.
