The Penbook:Projecting Paper

The Penbook combines pen paper and digital.It takes hand-written
input using a digital pen on real paper that is augmented with
a projection screen and could easily redefine how we interact with documents. In this video you can see it at work in a medical records capacity.more

Cake Projector

This example of creative projection combines a few of my favorite things: Star Wars,a pico projector and a birthday cake. Which element is the most unlikely? The pico projector of course! Nevertheless, a wonderful cake maker dad with a penchant for electronics pulled it off and projected Princess Leia out of an R2D2 cake with a Netbook on the outside running VGA to a Microvision Show WX on the inside.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

Only an iPhone5 Concept.....but Definitely Creative Projection

I can't help it....I secretly search for and eat up Apple rumors. Those rumors became especially applicable to the projector world when the word was that Apple headquarters was registered as the admin contact for ApplePico.com and we touched on it in the Pondering Pixel.

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.

Pico Projectors and Crossfit Training

I always try to find a way to make my passions intersect—but this time it was an unplanned tryst that in my view could become an ideal match as soon as the word gets out about just how compatible these two loves, CrossFit and pico projectors really are.
