Use your phone as a virtual projector

January 23, 2012

Researchers in Germany, Canada and the US may have come up with an elegant solution that can work with any smartphone and an external display: virtual projection.

The system works by using a central server that constantly takes screenshots of the external display and compares them with the images from the phone’s camera to track its location.

It then replicates what’s on the handset’s screen, while allowing you to add multiple image windows and position and rotate them.

Additionally, multiple users can collaborate and virtually project pictures or videos onscreen at the same time.

Personally I think your battery life will suffer the most, but in general it is a cool idea.

Pool table I want but can’t afford

September 23, 2009

Obscura Digital developed a pool table that responds with High Definition imagery to every shot.

They are also working on a new software that might be able to tell you where you should shoot the ball at what angle etc. That would probably improve my pool game 🙂

Unfortunately price is USD 80,000 and that’s without the pool table.
