Making holographic communication widely accessible
As the precursor to the Holobox as we now know it, there was initially a different perspective. Due to personal experiences with deceased loved ones, Andre and Marnix came up with the idea of recording video messages for bereaved family members. This way, grieving individuals could still be 'in touch' with their departed loved ones. This concept gained attention through various programs, including (how fitting) the show "Over mijn lijk" ("About My Corpse"). It was a tremendously beautiful project, but in hindsight, it became evident that there was more potential. The first seed for the Holobox was planted during this background.
Andre lived on Curacao, and Marnix lived in the Netherlands, but they worked together through remote conferencing.
This approach allowed them to combine their strengths. When Covid-19 emerged, they saw a great opportunity. At that moment, they fully invested in product development. To this day, there is still regular assessment of where the product or service can be improved. This ongoing process has led to the continual generation of new applications for which Holoboxes can be utilized. Especially with current topics like Sustainability, the Holobox has become indispensable.
A deliberate decision was made to produce and control everything in-house to ensure quality. At the time of writing, the capacity exists to produce 20 to 30 units per month, and expansion plans are already in place.
