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

Lexus and Projector Enabled Marketing

The jury is still out, (in auto circles anyway)on the Lexus IS300h which was designed to be a cool economically and environmentally sound cruiser. But if one were to look at how its being promoted --it comes off like the performance car of the year! That's the power of brilliant marketing minds and the creative use of projectors.more

Obscura Digital set to Transform San Francisco's Pier 15 April 17 & 18

When darkness falls on April 17 and 18 2013 why not venture out to Pier 15 in San Francisco? Obscura Digital is planning to transform it for the Exploratorium’s Grand Opening. It's called ‘Emergence.’ They've designed and built ten miniature replicas of the Exploratorium’s façade and will use projection mapping to display natural subjects on the surface of the building, creating the illusion that they are contained within its structure. Art, design, nature and technology come together and projectors are the cornerstone. Here's a video preview of how it will be done:

Projection Mapping on Buckingham Palace for the Queen's Jubilee.

BBC radio reported earlier today that about 36 projectors were beaming onto Buckingham Palace for the Queen's Jubilee Celebration. I found a video clip of the band Madness playing background music for this historic projection mapping event that I think was more than just a great show of technology prowess.more

A Pico Projector and The Speed of Light

I've always appreciated the way Microvison goes about the business of marketing their laser pico projectors. They understand that by geting their projectors into the right hands those hands can make magic and increase awareness and appreciation for their projectors like nothing they could have done on their own. One example of this is the short film "The Speed of Light" which is becoming a viral hit as I write.more

3D Projection Mapping Behind the Scenes

I've been looking for a video that would give us insight into the mechanism behind 3D projection advertising. Thank you 3DprojectionCO.com for documenting the steps taken for the Lexus CT200H spectacular building projection. For those of us mesmerized by this art form, watching the details from the ground up can give the letdown feel of seeing the dismantled floats after the Rose Bowl. But if you are of the "need to know" persuasion this video will give you a glimpse into the beauty that transpires when projectors and creative minds are given a giant canvas and a big budget.
