  • Bright mobile touchscreen projector, others

    This is very cool. Supposedly it works on any flat surface.





    I like the idea, specially the touch screen part. 10 inch sounds like a good size. More:

    The Light Touch casts a big image from up close by bouncing lasers off a 0.4-inch microdisplay, using techniques from holography to keep the picture in focus despite the sharp projection angle. Then it covers the image in a horizontal plane of infrared light that lies just above the table. An infrared camera watches for spots where a finger (or similarly sized object) breaks the plane and scatters the light.The machine figures out and executes the action corresponding to that location. It detects fast moves like swipes; an upgrade will sense multiple taps at once.

    Some of the other projectors shown are also kind of cool.

    I just wish I could make money as fast as I can come up with cool ideas for something like that...

      Would be sweet to figure out how to get it to project like a heads up display on the windshield.

      Touch feature might be awkward though on your windshield while driving...

        Or maybe over the steering wheel, if it's reasonably flat? Nah.

        I think it would be much cooler to project over your existing OEM screen...how trick would that be?
