We've been keeping an eye on developments in the world of 3D printing for the last couple of years. The subject is getting a lot of attention recently because 3D printing is now cheaper and more efficient and there are whole lot more players in the market. Of course, aside from the fact that 3D printing could have complete and utter game changing impact on our entire consumer culture, our interest for this post lies in the technology's innards which include DLP projection.more

Texas Instruments' DLP technology is showing up in embedded applications that constantly remind me that we are on the fast track to the fulfillment of more Star Trek fantasies. A portable tool, this medical technology manufactured by Christie, this one would show up in the Enterprise" Sick Bay" and Dr. Crusher would use the "VeinViewer to shine near-infrared light on a patients' skin so as to light up the veins. The light is absorbed by blood and is reflected by the surrounding tissue. In essence, the patient's skin becomes a "screen" for the projected image.more

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

The Paris Auto show 2012 isn't for another week but attendees there will get to see the Smart Forstars concept car which aims to turn your driveway, into a drive-in. How'd they do it? By mounting a DLP projector in the car's hood. The projector connects to a smart phone via Bluetooth. You need to watch the whole video to see the projector revealed at the end.more

Fascinating is the work of Burlington, Massachusetts based company, Z Corporation. They have the ability to create different mechanical and physical objects with a copying machine – a three-dimensional (3D) printer. This video unfortunately does not highlight the role played by a DLP projector in the process. Here we have a promising, albeit very rudimentary variation on the Enterprise's “Ship’s Replicator”(aka molecular assembler) and a projector plays a key role in one of its critical processes--the curing process. DLP may indeed challenge the dominance of lasers for curing resins because of the cost. But at this juncture, we just wanted to share a video featuring some very cool technology.
