Ishikawa Watanabe Lab's DynaFlash Projects Images onto Moving Objects

The DynaFlash is a new projector system for the Ishikawa Watanabe Laboratory that can project images onto any type of surface in high definition. What sets the DynaFlash apart from other projection systems, though, is that its projections will deform and conform in real time to suit the contours and movements of the object onto which it's being projected.

For anyone who's stood in front of a normal projector before, they've no doubt noticed that the projection on their shirt, for example, would get mangled by the folds and billows as they moved around. Ishikawa Watanabe Laboratory's system gets rid of this distortion by effectively "seeing" what it's projecting onto, beaming each pixel of light directly onto the specific point of the object, even if that object is uneven or in motion.
