Kill the Box in all Endeavors Including Projection Mapping

A dandypunk is a harbinger of nonconformity. This one uses projection mapping in performance art that is a sheer delight to watch. In this short clip of a longer performance you cannot help but feel the energy generated by this type of interactivity with light, images, and concepts which could not be expressed as well in any other way. The message? There is no box. info@adandypunk.com

Projectors and Wedding Cakes Unite for Unique Reception

3D Projection mapping on a wedding cake is so creative and alluring that if I were attending this wedding reception I might even forget to ask if the cake was chocolate. This couple chose to display a game of Donkey Kong animated by DJ and lighting company Posh Entertainment. If it had been my wedding we'd have used the 3D projector to display Galaga as playing that game was an integral part of our courtship. Great idea and very creative projection.

Striped Facade Projection

This wonderful Urbanscreen.com projection mapping production was sent by an architect friend of mine who tried to explain to me the meaning of parallax as it pertains to this video. Watch as the projected stripes bend the building's facade.

That is the core of the viral success of this ad.

Projectors Involved in Bringing Site to the Blind

These special glasses developed at the University of Oxford, use two cameras and an infrared projector to detect nearby objects. They use a gyroscope, a compass, and a GPS to help orient the wearer. The Images that are created through this data are then projected on transparent OLEDs. Yhe hardest part for any innovator is to have his or her creation reach the public. Hopefully this one will be put on the fast track.

Casio Projectors Evolve into Airport Virtual Assistants

When lamp free projectors were on the horizon, many of us who are involved with projectors began to speculate just how their existence might change things. After all, if the high expense of a lamp change were not an issue, projectors would be an obvious choice for 24/7 applications utilized across a broad spectrum of industries.more

3D Printing: A Revolution in the Making

We've been keeping an eye on developments in the world of 3D printing for the last couple of years. The subject is getting a lot of attention recently because 3D printing is now cheaper and more efficient and there are whole lot more players in the market. Of course, aside from the fact that 3D printing could have complete and utter game changing impact on our entire consumer culture, our interest for this post lies in the technology's innards which include DLP projection.more
