June 5, 2016 – Las Vegas, NV – A 3D holographic product design branded as Holojem™ has won the JCK Think Tank competition at INTERVISION/LUXURY in Las Vegas.
The immersive technology, designed to bridge the digital and virtual shopping experiences for jewelry consumers, was created and developed by a team from Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company and Excelion Partners.
JCK Think Tank, an event held in a similar fashion to ABC’s Shark Tank, was moderated by Ann Arnold, chief strategy officer at Buyers Intelligence Group (BIG). Think Tank guests selected Holojem as the winner after hearing the finalists pitch their products live to a panel of judges. The other finalists were: Galatea: Jewelry by Artist; Jewelfie: Powered by Prorigo Software; Megasoft; eLuxe 3D; and NanoRosetta.
“We are extremely honored to have won at JCK Think Tank,” said Benjamin DeBoer, director of corporate development at Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company. “We are thankful for our team at Excelion Partners for co-designing this incredible technology to share with the jewelry industry. We can’t wait to see how Holojem can bridge the gap between physical shopping and design to create a memorable in-store experience.”
“Our innovation team wanted to create something for jewelers that has significant consumer impact,” said Greg Oppermann, president of Excelion Partners. “The judges recognized the full potential of Holojem as a way to create a remarkable and immersive brand experience.”
