I bought this for my ten year old nephew, as it is very interesting, extremely fun and a great way to talk about science. It is very easy to use; just place, the little red ball or any other small enough object, inside the chamber, and watch its reflection floating in the centre of the chamber's hole. It is then very easy to explain to the surprised child how this is possible, as the box provides all the information.
Although both the chamber and the object are very small, there are so many things that can be placed inside; coins, beans, small Lego people, small earrings, the options are endless and children have such a great imagination.
In total, this is an excellent gift for children, but also a fun and unusual gift for grownups. Also as the hologram chamber is in a nice box, it is really easy to gift-wrap.
coins are giving a very good image, but the mirror inside is much too easy to scratch (a coin moving inside is damaging the mirrors very fast)
My disappointment with the product is that it is so small - about 5" diameter. The one I'd seen previous was about 12" diameter and, as is often the case, size does matter!
With size comes a proportionate viewing height and angle to actually see the illusion. Also comes a proportionate size of object that can be displayed. This product can do little more than display the included button object, "boring!", and a paracetamol tablet, "slightly more interesting - yawn!"

Bought this because It reminded me of one I had when I was a kid.
It didn't disappoint, great seeing my kids trying to pick up the penny :)
Amazing little thing! Hologram image is so real you want to pick it up! Things like beads or rings work well as it's small.Published 19 months ago by Pip
