Ghost Box

The Ghostbox is a prototype conceived by the creative studio Leviathan who sought a way to forge a connection between people and clients' products.more

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

Projectors Revolutionize "The Wall" Tour

Roger Waters' "The Wall Live" Concert tour is winding down after 27 performances across Europe. In this brief video, the co-founder of Pink Floyd, expresses his excitement over where projection technology was back in the 1970's (when he started touring) and the magnificent heights it is reaching now.more

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

Pool Hall Projector

The local pool hall is the place on the planet where another human might actually think I'm pretty smart in math. While a complete failure in algebra, my geometry skills are not too shabby. I usually know exactly how and where a ball should be hit. The problem is my hands and my eyes rarely do the bidding of my brainmore

Projection Mapping on a Cylindrical Building

This was an ambitious setting for 3D projection mapping but PostPanic--the Amsterdam based creative studio pulled it off masterfully. The cylindrical shape of a distinctive building in the area provided the canvas for a four minute abstract and graphic interpretation of the story of "The Human Age."more

Water Screen Projections

I wish I'd have seen this video over the summer when it was created--it would have been posted immediately as a stunning tribute to the power of projection mapping. Created by Klip Collective to celebrate the athletes of the US Olympics Team, I'll post it now at the close of the year as a tribute to the amazing athletic accomplishments that transpired in London during 2012. You'll see the full gamut of projection mapping techniques including building projections, mobile projections from a moving vehicle, and pretty incredible water screen projections on the Boston Harbor.

Occupy and Project

The first time I saw the powerful use of projectors in the Occupy movement my heart was a flutter. I confessed this in post last fall when the movement was projecting the now famous 99% bat signal out of a window.more

Microwave with Built in Projector

No video on this one, but I had to give a mention to the projector that wants to save you from cancer. Many sources over the years have cited the potential health risks associated with standing in front of an operating microwave oven.more

IllumiShare: Projectors Dissolving Borders

It's a pretty nifty trick with far reaching implications. A peripheral device, IllumiShare appears to be a desk lamp, and like that device, it lights up the surface at which it is pointed. The components are straightforward: a computer, camera, projector and software. They capture the surface of my desk and send send it to my remote office colleague in London, my professor in Brussels, or my online friend in Tehran. There we interact in virtual ways that allow an actual physical game of Crazy Eights, simultaneous Hangman with an actual pad and pen, or the side by side comparison of Barbie and Ken with Sara and Daramore
