1) How does it work?

 

The Cinema Snowglobe looks just like a traditional snowglobe, except when the globe is picked up and shaken, the "snow" (tiny bits of glitter) falls and a tiny film begins, creating a virtual world within the globe. If the globe remains still for over 20 seconds (i.e., after the snow settles), the viewer shakes the globe again to re-activate the film and the snow, just like a traditional snowglobe!


The Cinema Snowglobe is battery powered and you charge the battery with a micro-USB connector (just like a cellphone).

 

 

2) How often should I plug it in for charging?

 

The Cinema Snowglobe requires re-charging after about 100 viewings or 6 weeks of stand-by. You can plug it into a standard AC outlet with the supplied charger and cord.

 

 

3) Can I upload my own content?

 

Yes! The Cinema Snowglobe in production will allow uploading of content via a USB connection, and eventually through wi-fi and uploading on the cloud. Customize and constantly refresh your snowglobe with your favorite video memory or photographs!

 

 

4) I want one!! When can I get the Cinema Snowglobe?

 

Cinema Snowglobes, including ones capable of viewing imagery and landscapes in 360 degrees, are anticipated to be in production for delivery by the end of 2018. Please send us your email on the CONTACT page and we will be delighted to put your name on the waiting list.

 

 

5) Why shouldn't I put it in the sun?

 

The Cinema Snowglobe's water-filled globe acts the same as a magnifying glass, so should never be put in direct sunlight or you may start a fire!

 

 

6) My snowglobe has a bubble.

 

We've discovered that combinations of temperature swings, atmospheric pressure variations, and other environments may contribute to Cinema Snowglobes developing a small bubble. In our experience, the small bubble won't get any bigger, and shouldn't interfere with your viewing experience. If your snowglobe has a crack, on the other hand, or if the bubble gets inordinately large, please contact us and we will fix it.
