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

I am the first to admit that prior to viewing this video, I was completely ignorant as to the definition of Glockenspiel. But then a closer look made me realize that I'd seen one before, or at least something like it in a marching band at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. But that's not the reason I'm sharing this video. Creative Projection readers will appreciate the kind of creativity required to enlist the services of a pico projector and develop this interactive musical experience

I guess if I were to describe the goals of this this paper computing technology it would appear to be less than a good thing because from what I can tell it has the goal of being a paper-based version of Google Docs. What's up with that? However, once you consider that it is meant for collaborating artists, it makes more sense.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

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.

Among my many vices is the need to know.... EVERYTHING. I think this is why the Casio Monkeybook appealed to me the minute I saw this video. Designed in the shape of a book, this is an interactive multi-touch presentation system that incorporates a Casio lamp free projector. Of course using the Casio LED/hybrid projector makes perfect sense when you think of how many hours a day the projector will be used in a digital signage application. The expense of projector replacement lamps has always been an issue and Casio has met that head on.more

As we all know well, our car headlights are intended to improve visibility at night by lighting up the road. The down side of this is that headlights also illuminate raindrops and snowflakes making them a major driver distraction and causing countless accidents. Carnegie Mellon researchers are working to make driving in the elements much safer and have developed a prototype system using a projector, camera, and 50/50 beamsplitter. The camera images the precipitation at the top of the field of view. When a raindrop falls into the top of this field, it is illuminated by the projector and its image is picked up by the camera.more

There are two very exciting technologies featured in this video from the Human Media Lab at Queen's University in Canada. The first is Telehuman which is basically a life sized cylindrical telepresence pod and a milestone toward seeing the fulfillment of my greatest Star Trek technology fantasies.more

Youth athletes can thank Joe Dellanno, president of Smart Light Sports for inventing Ice Light, Court Light, Lane Light and Turf Light systems for hockey, basketball, volleyball, marching bands, bowling and turf sports. It's not something just anyone would think of, but if you've ever been involved in youth sports you know the amount of precious time lost to setup and changeover and the utter disconnect between trainers and athletes that occurs when the kids are milling around waiting for the next drill.more

I had a feeling I'd soon find a video of a projector used effectively as a tool in the Occupy Wall Street protests. Projectors provide bold, loud messaging flexibility and likely do not violate any laws currently on the books in the US. However, Ukraine's Kyiv Post reports that charges were recently leveled against individuals projecting the slogan"Freedom to Yulia" in central Kyiv during a New Year's show at Independence Square. While no arrests were made, the door to the projection room across the square was kicked in and projection technology unplugged. Have we entered the era of the subversive projector?
