Horsing Around

Wow! So Armageddon came and went, and has now frankly become a bit of a blur. But what an experience it was! We scanned well over 100 people over the long weekend, and were really happy with the reception that the technology received – it was fantastic. The team at Holonize would like to extend a massive THANKS to everyone who came and saw us over the weekend – we really enjoyed seeing and talking to you all.

We have a large number of 3D Scans of people in costume, and we would love to start showcasing some of them. If you’d like your 3D Model or Scan to appear on our blog or on Social Media, just give us a yell at

Alternatively, if you would like a copy of your model on file, just give us a yell on the same email.

3DMe Sumo suit and Horse head of 3D Model - Holonize #HolonizeThePlanet

Here’s an example of one of our team, who came along with a Sumo suit costume, combined with a fabled horse head. An interesting combination, but the model turned out to be quite effective none the less!

Apologies if we haven’t had a chance to get back to all of you yet. We collected a large number of business cards for people over the long weekend – and we’ve been having a wee bit of a break before getting back into the swing of things. Hopefully you can forgive us! 🙂

And certainly not least! Check out the Holonize crew in the New Zealand Herald here – we’re pretty stoked with this. And good to see we’re not the only ones who think that this sort of technology is the way of the future 😀

Holonize gave away a phone over the weekend of Armageddon – check out the winning photo which was shared by a member of our Facebook community below


Thanks for following, and have a good one.

Well, it’s all come down to this! Over a year in preparation for Armageddon, and an extremely busy week of packing everything up and moving it half way around Auckland. And it still seems like there’s heaps to do! The doors opened yesterday, and it was truly amazing to see everyone in their costumes – you could really feel the atmosphere in the air. It should be a fantastic weekend, and we do look forward to seeing you all there! Competition information below.

Countdown to Armageddon – Vol.2

Join us in the countdown to Armageddon! Nine days and counting!

The Holonize crew are gearing up for the event. Now it’s a matter of getting all the small things in order – Shirts (above), iPads, equipment calibration sorted, marketing collateral, last minute bug fixes, you name it. We’re currently giving it all she’s got Captain!

If you see any of our crew wearing a Holonize Shirt – get them to stop so you can view Augmented Reality holograms right off the back (pardon the pun).

There will be a LOT more information in the week leading up to Armageddon. What we do know is that we will be giving away some ticket the week of Armageddon ( check out our Facebook post here and like our page to go in the draw!), and we be setup at Booth 47 – so come check us out!

Hopefully you’ve downloaded our app and checked out the holograms in our library by now – as it will save you time over the weekend and there will be plenty to see. You can do this by downloading our app to your device, and then downloading a Launchpad from the website. Either print the Launchpad or open it on a tablet and point your phones camera at it with the Holonize App open. We have a few BIG surprises in store over the weekend, but all I can say if you’re already using the App is “these aren’t the droids you’re looking for…”

Social media and Expo preparation

This week we welcomed Holonize to the dark depths of Social Media – scary stuff! Let us know what you think. Check us out, or give us a shout out on Facebook, Twitter and Google+ pages.

As the Armageddon Auckland Expo gets closer, all that seems to be happening is our to-do list grows, and our time available shrinks. But that’s part of the joy of starting your own company really isn’t it?

Some of the things we’ve been up to this week include equipment tagged for Armageddon, finalising the animations, getting our content ready for sale and creating business cards and shirts. We’ve also been investigating new technology, and how we can speed up the 3DMe process. If you don’t know what 3DMe is – it’s our 3D modelling technology which we use to spit create a 3D Hologram of YOU, which we can then download to a LaunchPad for you to view yourself in Augmented Reality anywhere you like. The technology we’ve been looking into will also help us with working on automating the scanned model upload process, which will make things smoother over the weekend at Armageddon. Oh, and we’ve begun launching our Social Media channels. Give us a shout out! We will be giving away some really cool stuff in the coming weeks, so look out.

Pain is temporary, film is forever. That’s why we spent a bit longer than we would have liked in putting this animation together. We’re pretty happy with the end result though, and we hope you like it too!
