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.

3D Projection in the Garden

It is curious how a 3D projector mapping shrubs and small trees results in visual art so ....natural. This projection mapping shown at Digital Life 2012 in the Romaeuropa Festival was like watching a dream reveal itself. My home is surrounded by forest and I enjoyed the projection artists portray a day's first light in a futuristic way that changed my perception of space.

Truck vs Projector-- Projector Wins

In ad effort to relay to the public just how durable their SuperQuad 3D projector really is, DigitalProjection decided to run it over with a 3.3 ton truck. They rolled over it six times to show that the projector would not only survive the abuse, but would continue to perform. As you can see, the movie played on...

What to do with a Projector at Halloween

A Compassionate Projector

Researchers in Japan have developed this tool for medical teaching which is a bit more interactive than earlier versions I've run across. With a handheld viewer, users can study the body from multiple angles. The advanced 3D effect produced by the device allows students to gain a deep and lasting understanding of the structures within the human body. Perhaps more than a creative use of a projector, this video demonstates the potential for ushering in an era of compassionate projection. Why?more

Projecting us Toward the Holodeck

There are two very exciting technologies featured in this video from the Human Media Lab at Queen's University in Canada. The first is Telehuman which is basically a life sized cylindrical telepresence pod and a milestone toward seeing the fulfillment of my greatest Star Trek technology fantasies.more
