67 Innovative Projectors

From Holograms Text Messages to Projection Activism

— August 13, 2009 — Tech
With innovative projectors and projections like these, the future looks awesome, my friends. Imagine whipping out a pen-sized device and casting a functional keyboard on your table, and a screen at the wall. Pretty wicked, huh? This cluster examines some of the innovative projectors Trend Hunter has featured, from concept to reality.

Implications - The rapid advancement of projection technology has enabled consumers and creatives alike to create jaw-dropping visual effects. Consumer applications include indoor fireworks, tech-savvy chandeliers and projection mirrors. Businesses can take advantage of this phenomenon by infusing ad campaigns, publicity stunts and consumer products with projection technology. The most successful designs are those that offer consumers a customizable experience.
