Projectors are not just useful for business or home cinema these days – they have an endless list of uses and applications! Here are 10 of the more innovative uses of projectors and LED displays we’ve seen in the last few weeks ranging from projecting recipes from a barcode in the kitchen to hiding projectors in places to create works of art, a snazzy lounge or a 4k perfect home cinema!
Read on for our countdown of ten of the best...
#1. Tasty Recipes
Want to get tasty recipes for your food? A new gesture controlled pico projector concept hides inside a lamp in the kitchen. Just scan the barcode and it projects the recipe on the kitchen worktop.
#2. Hiding in the Lounge
Well we thought the Screeneo 2 was amazing but the Sony 4k ultra short throw home cinema takes your lounge to a whole new level - and it hides inside a stylish cabinet so you won't even know it's there. New model coming soon.
#3. The (Pico) Genie is in the Lamp
It's amazing what you can fit inside a light these days to create interesting displays in the home or office or just as pieces of art. Pico projectors have got really small now and ultra bright so your applications are endless.
#4. Outdoor Displays
Need a snazzy TV to work outdoors whether you need it for the yacht or to accompany the hot tub? These sleek outdoor TVs won't look out of place on a Sunseeker although you might need to sit down before you get the price so consider a projector screen that folds away if you need a more cost friendly alternative with a bigger image!
#5. Feature Walls
Your cubby holes in the house or office will never look so good with these LED screens brightening up the office, bar, museum or even the lounge!
#6. Serve Up a Treat in the Bar
Here's a great way to spice up the average bar with this LED projection with edge mapping to link the images together. Great for shopfitters and perfect for marketeers wanting to run ads to encourage drinking/eating or for all those artists out there looking to make a good artistic impression behind their bar
#7. Projection Mapping
Projection mapping is the buzz word at the moment and Hitachi shows this in action with their pool table which triggers a light show each time you bang that ball in the pocket
#8 Amazing Light Shows
Waterfall Projection on a curve is eye popping. Its a bit like watching the Northern Lights and you simply cant take your eyes off these displays. Need to project onto a curved surface? Just call us on 0845 121 8800 and we can help create the perfect projection display.
Need your satnav to get around? It’s commonplace these days but it can be distracting to keep looking down to your dashboard, especially in the winter months when you can face fog and ice! Projection can be used to project a Heads Up Display (HUD) of your dashboard directly onto a part of your windscreen, giving you your dashboard and satnav directions while letting you keep your eyes on the road.
#10. Amazing Artworks
