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.

Kickstarting Hologram Projectors

Kickstarter has become one of my favorite sites to visit as recently I've uncovered quite a few projector-related projects in search of funding. The latest is the HOLHO. Due to the innovative optical illusion it creates, the HOLHO can transform all the pictures and videos on Smartphones and Tablets into holograms. Users get a 3D holographic picture from the HOLHO which sits on top or under the smart device's screen.more

Raspberry Pi DIY Pico Projector Bike Headlight

We caught a glimpse of pico projectors in use in the biking world back in 2011 when through the magic of the video they took, I was able to watch and admire a couple of Czech artists who took bike safety matters into their own hands using a pico projector. A reader alerted me to the fact that my two artists may have been inspired by the Lightlane Project belonging to Evan Gant and Alex Tee.more

Pool Hall Projector

Gaming on the Fly with a Pico Projector

Just when I thought I understood the needs of gamers in terms of projection purity I come across this video which features the coming together of smartphone, pico projector and tripod projector for casual gaming on the fly. While I was absorbing data on lag time and frame interpolation and trying to understand how to achieve projected gaming nirvana, LaserVR was creating Alpha Range a video projector and laser pointer game available exclusively for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. Looks like this throwback is providing a quick fix to happy iOS device users.

A Projector on your Person

There is a lot of news coming out of Microsoft Research lately. This one reminds me of a product I covered in an earlier post. The Microsoft version pairs a pico projector with a Kinect motion controller and shoulder mounting device--wearable technology. The objective is to enable users to project onto any surface at any time for image interactivity.
