A Close Encounter You Can Wear!

"Through the science of LASER technology and recent advances in the art of holography - a new space age product - the hologram has been created for your pleasure and enjoyment!"

Check out this decidedly 70s piece of sci-fi memorabilia: a Close Encounters Of The Third Kind hologram pendant! This ad appeared in Starlog #15, back in the Spring/Summer of 1978. Cool.

  1. Was "laser" the "cyber" of the 1970s?

  2. I don't know what's scarier: The fact that they offered this to the public or the fact that some guy in a disco was wearing it over his hairy chest.

  3. The alien on the pendant looks more like Don Rickles than the being created by Carlo Rambaldi for the film.
