France’s Toy of the Year Debuts in the United States

Plano, TX (PRWEB) July 10, 2013

Holograms, three-dimensional images, were once only the stuff of science fiction, starring in movies like Star Wars and Iron Man. Now holograms are not only a reality, they’re the product of HolograFX, named the hottest new toy in France that’s soon to reach the United States.

HolograFX, the latest invention from Plano, Texas-based specialty toy company Goliath Games, allows children to create holographic images – including self-images – with the use of a hologram theater, magician-quality illusions and yes – an app. This toy developer knows that today’s children rely on Smartphones for endless entertainment, and the exclusive downloadable app was the final touch in developing the special effects needed to put on an incredible hologram effects show.

With realistic three-dimensional imagery and ‘now you see it, now you don’t’ tricks, HolograFX uses an illusionary technique known as Pepper’s Ghost to deliver Hollywood-quality special effects. Entertainment magnets like Disney have used this technique for large-scale theme park attractions and movie effects, and now children (and fun-loving adults) can mystify friends and family with these same illusions.

Designed by an up-and-coming magician from Los Angeles, California, HolograFX is already garnering acclaim as the hottest toy of 2013 in the European market. It was recently named the Grand Prix du Jouet (Toy of the Year) in the electronics category as well as the Grand Prix Du Jouet De L’ Annee (Overall Toy of the Year) in France, beating out 13 other category winners for the top spot. With a reputation of predicting some of the hottest-selling toys in the United States, France’s toy spotters – who previously awarded top-sellers like Paper Jamz, V-Smile and Barbie Girl – are putting HolograFX in this elite category.

“We are honored that HolograFX has received the top toy honors in France, and we can’t wait for the US market to experience what we loved when we discovered this toy – a unique blend of leading-edge mobile technology and magician-quality effects,” says David Norman, president of Goliath Games. “Like a lot of adults and children, I remember the Star Wars scene where Princess Leia pleas for help via a holographic message. It seemed so futuristic at the time, yet now we are making imagery like this a fun reality with HolograFX.”

HolograFX is available for preorder for $ 35 per set at, and will debut at Toys R Us and other major U.S. retailers in the fall, 2013. The complete set includes:

    The hologram theater
    18 amazing illusions
    Downloadable app available at Google Apps Marketplace for Android™ and The App Store for iPhone™ and iPod Touch™

While a good magician never reveals all secrets, additional special effects are viewable here. It’s the stuff Harry Potter and his wand-wielding friends could only dream of – if only they had a Smartphone—and HolograFX.

Dallas Cowboys Dont Have to Pony Up this Season: Save on The Display Shield

Orlando, Fl. (PRWEB) September 05, 2014

In addition to the Dallas Cowboys schedule kicking off with an exciting match against the 49ers (San Francisco), the Cowboys have also been working with AT&T on implementing faster internet speeds, interactive digital displays, a mobile app that interacts in the AT&T Stadium during games and investing in The Display Shield bulk display enclosures. A popular solution for signage protection among sports arenas and outdoor facilities, The Display Shield weatherproof enclosures are a wise financial investment for The American Football Franchise. Offering water-resistance and security, twenty of Protective Enclosures Company’s newly designed digital signage cases (The Display Shield DS5060H-2 models) will be located in the AT&T Miller Lite Corral outdoor pavilion.

CEO at PEC, Justin King, commented on the deal “PEC couldn’t hope to be part of something more amazing… the Dallas Cowboys are an icon and close to the heart of America. As they move forward with their exciting interactive updates to the stadium, integrating The Display Shields and continuing in the new season, PEC will be cheering them on.” The Dallas Cowboys are an American icon. They came in at number three on The World’s 50 Most Valuable Sports Teams list by Forbes Magazine. They are an impressive addition to PEC’s list of customers, some of which include Talladega Superspeedway, Georgie Tech, the University of Mississippi, the University of Alabama, Jacksonville Jaguars, Marriott, Six Flags and more.

The Display Shield was selected by the Dallas Cowboys due to its versatility, the quality of the product and cost-savings. Made of ultra-clear Lexan ® polycarbonate, the same material used to produce bulletproof glass, the front covers (shields) offer ultimate durability and screen protection. The Display Shield’s thermostatically controlled 36CFM 115V filtered fan coupled with two vents located on the upper side corners regulate the temperature of the enclosed display. These weatherproof units weigh significantly less than alternative digital signage protection solutions and are made of lightweight, yet highly durable and long lasting HMWPE outdoor plastics. In addition, the Dallas Cowboys pointed out that their displays won’t be taking damage, so they’ll need to be replaced less often and when they are replaced, they’ll be able to continue to be housed in PEC’s protective The Display Shield enclosures. That’s a money saver situation and a win-win.

About PEC:

Protective Enclosures Company (PEC) is a privately held, US based manufacturer of affordable, lightweight, weatherproof and secure protective enclosures for TVs, Flat Panel Displays and Digital Signage.

All PEC, The TV Shield ® & The Display Shield® logos and product names are owned by PEC. Other company and product names are trademarks of their respective owners.

Digital Signage ? Interaction to the Max

Interact with your customers is one of the best ways to promote your company, brand or product. There are many things you can get from the interaction with your customers, but you must be sure you will do well. More and more companies are offering better interaction, but they are not aware of things that should be done to make the most of it, and that’s why they did failed to make the most of their campaign.

A digital display is an advertising method that will allow you to create dynamic ads without spending much money. This is one of the most popular methods of advertising because you will be able to easily interact with your potential customers. This is a billboard that uses a media player that lets you view all the content you want your customers to see. There are some that will allow you to manage your display using the Internet, but you need to look for a company that can provide this functionality.

Another feature that makes it a more interactive digital signage is its ability to integrate with your social media accounts. An average signal has the ability to display images and text animations and videos. But with the help of this feature, you will not only encourage your customers to interact with your social media accounts, but also convince potential clients that you have the best service they can get. This will not only benefit your revenue in the short term, but also help you to establish your brand in the long term.

You’ll also be able to find a digital display that includes a touch screen function. This will allow you to make your advertising more interactive, because your customers or potential customers will help you get a better interaction without spending much money. The only problem you’ll experience when searching for this feature is that the number of companies that can offer you a digital display with touch screen capabilities are very limited.

If you are looking for a company that can provide you with a digital display that has the feature you need, then it would be better if you go searching on the Internet. There are many options available to you, and all you have to do is find one that can provide you with everything you need. There are people who complain about the service they receive from a digital signage company, but the truth is they have not spent enough time to find the best company for them.
