    Projection at York Castle Museum
    See life sized videos of prisoners talking about their life in the cells at York Castle museum, brought to life by versatile Vivitek Qumi Q5 LED portable projectors. The prison cells at the York Castle Museum all have interesting tales to tell as many were home to a number of well-known inmates during the 18th century.  Undoubtedly the most notorious of these was Richard ‘Dick’ Turpin the highwayman who was held captive in York Prison prior to his execution on York’s Knavesmire in 1739. Find out more on the York Castle Musem website here

Using a black light torch, visitors can also find hidden messages written in UV ink on a collection of photos and sketches, and a shadow theatre enhanced by a selection of props is a fun interactive for children. Find out more on the Dunster Castle National Trust website here

  • Dream Beamer: Protect Your Eyes from Projection Rays

    The Eye-Friendly Projection System

    For as long as there has been projection, there has been a presenter pinned to the side walls or half way back up the room so as to avoid the dazzling glare from the projector bulb. Someone has finally come up with a "Dream" solution...software.

    Dream Beamer software protects the eyes of anyone inside a projector beam by tracking people in front of the projector beam and then blacking out that section of the projected image. Viacheslav Sabirov apparently thought of  the idea after seeing university lecturers suffer from the glare for hours every day

    Viacheslav says “Even projector manufacturers say in their manuals that the time of eye exposure to projector light must be strictly limited, otherwise it can cause harm to retina. Many of the people I interviewed complained of eye discomfort and headaches.”

    The product has been under construction since 2013 when he recruited software developers as well as technical and medical professors with industry experience.

    Recent advances in the interactive projector technology have made this idea a reality, “there was no inexpensive method of doing precise tracking of the presenter until recently-- it is still tough but now possible,” says the Dream Beamer inventor.

    a 3D sensory is fed through the PC which recognises people stood in front of the projector, it then acts as a middle man between the image that's supposed to be projected at that moment and adds in a black image where the presenter is stood. This means that in theory the software can work with any projector.

    The idea is to sell the software with a webcam type system to form one package and sell it on to projector manufacturers.“We already have an agreement with company called 3D-tek which is going to build a line of projectors. Our software will run on 3D-tek's projector hardware,” says Sabirov, but it could also just work as an add-on for existing projector users too.

    Our "vision is that all projectors must have the feature onboard as it can cost less than $5 if we are talking about mass production.”

  • I Predict a Ritot! - Projector Watch Concept

    Okay, so speculation is rifle online about the latest Ritot projector watch, HOWEVER,  the concept has been born and we weren't the only ones to love it.

    Ritot projector watch

    The idea is simple, throw away that tired old watch with the minute hand that sticks and worn out strap, become a modern style icon with the new Ritot projector watch!

    We can see this easily challenging the big brands with its reasonable price tag and unique design. The Ritot concept was the "World's first projection watch" which claimed to project out content from your smartphone on to the back of your hand.

    The Simple design appealed to those who love having the latest tech but don't want to feel bogged down by lots of devices and wanted help to "stay on top of things with vibrating notifications, messages and alerts. Dismiss a notification with a shake of your wrist". Merging something you would probably be wearing anyway (watch) with technology that's actually useful in keeping you up to date with calls, texts, memos and more is something Personal Projector likes the look of.

    Whilst we are all waiting for this concept to actually be proposed,  why not view our range of pocketable projectors that work with almost any smartphone (plus many other devices) by clicking here

  • Hologram Projection... From Your Smartphone?

    Today the internet has exploded with the revelation Star Wars type tech is soon to be not only a reality but in your pocket!

    Ostendo Technologies have released news that their new chip which was almost a decade in development and is capable of producing a projected image larger than the standard TV (48 inches diagonally). This chip is tiny at only the same size as your existing smartphone's camera unit and will cost less than $50 to add. Ostendo are predicting that this will be on the market and in your hand before summer 2015.

    We've recently seen the demise of other smartphones with in-built projection capability, such as the Samsung Beam, so what makes Ostendo think that this will fare better? Well by the second half of 2015 they're expecting production to start on a 3D chip!

    With a lack of hologram content and capable apps / software, this might seem like a bit of a gimmick at the moment and is receiving some bad press, like 4K TV's on their release. However, in the same way as 4k has persisted and is now slowly trickling out the masses, we expect the content to catch up with the capability if it proves popular.

    It isn't clear how realistic it is to expect to own a smartphone that will produce an amazing 3D hologram within the next 2 years, we sure are excited to see whether it will happen!

    In the meantime, if you're looking for tomorrow's technology today, check out the Pico Genie M100 portable projector. Wireless Mirroring from your laptop / smartphone, LED light-source that produces a 70"  image and it still fits in your pocket!
