Cheap Projector Uses Prisms To Create Colour Images From B&W Source

But researchers at Dartmouth College and Disney Research Zürich have come up with a more unusual projection approach using prisms and very precise computer-generated black and white images.


A Video Projector Is A Kick-Arse Way To Decorate A Christmas Tree

Before you buy a bunch of discounted LED lights for next year’s Christmas tree, you might want to consider putting that money towards a projector instead — one that will guarantee that your living room holiday decor will far outshine your neighbour’s.

New Laser Projector Makes 3D Images That Hang In Mid-Air

Maybe the solution to touchscreen displays that don’t get washed out in direct sunlight is to skip the screen altogether.
