Top 5 Hologram Projectors On the Market

12 June 2017

Hologram projectors are no longer a fake prop in sci-fi movies. They are starting to show up on the market, and not just for stores or companies to purchase. I bet it won’t be long before you see someone with a hologram projector displayed in their home. Below are the top five hologram projectors currently on the market, from home companions to mobile hologram projectors for projecting on the go.

This one is for those of you who are big fans of technology like Amazon’s Echo or Google Home. Gatebox, by Vinclu, is very similar to those two technologies, but this takes it a step further. Gatebox is a virtual robot companion that comes to life and automates your life. Similar to Echo or Google Home, Gatebox can turn on lights, turn on automated vacuums, lock doors etc. But Gatebox can also provide companionship in a single-person home. Gatebox can send you texts through the day as if it were a real person, and you can even program it to do the same activities as you, like brushing teeth. Gatebox was invented to help the single people in Japan feel as if they have someone waiting for them at home while they are at work. Currently, it is on pre-order and only available in Japan and the U.S., but Vinclu plans to release it worldwide in the future.

Price: $2,600

Size: 360 mm x 220 mm x 520 mm

Resolution: 1280 x 720

4. Holho 4Faces

If the above projectors are a bit out of your price range, then this is the device for you. This hologram device
