To celebrate the recent live debut of collectible card franchise “Aikatsu!”, Bandai has released a limited edition version of their Hako Vision 3D hologram toy series.

The “Aikatsu!” toy is the newest addition to Bandai’s Hako Vision line of box-shaped toys that utilize smartphones to create holograms. Made in the approximate shape of an 8.5 centimeter cube, each toy contains a backdrop, as well as a 2-dimensional bar code printed on the box. After scanning the bar code, the smartphone is placed face down on the open top of the box and, utilizing the box’s proprietary technology, projects a highly realistic 3D video.

The toy utilizes the videos broadcast during the “Aikatsu! Live Illusion” concert series, held August 16th to 20th, specially revised and edited for Hako Vision. Two videos lasting approximately three minutes can be viewed using the toy, the first “Aikatsu!” 3D holograms available.

The toy is available from Bandai’s official online store, Premium Bandai, as well as Namco’s “Aikatsu!” official shop. It retails for 500 yen, plus tax.
