A 3D Projection that Can Scale to Huge Heights
Wednesday Jan 7, 2015 (00:05:07)
We often find products at CES that are newsworthy, but it is not often that we find a display technology that is worth talking about. The technology behind the display at the Altec Lansing booth, presented by PM Screen was certainly an exception to that rule. In fact, it was their display that caused us to stop and interview Altec Lansing in the first place.
The display featured 3 of the company's new Bluetooth speakers being emphasized by fire and water, showing off the speaker's fireproof and waterproof capabilities. What was interesting about the display, however, is that it was all created with 3D projections.
In addition to the small screen presented at CES, the company's technology is capable of scaling to large surfaces, too. In fact, they were responsible for a 12 projector setup on the ice hockey rink at the ice hockey world championship opening ceremony, whose video is available on their website. This is a truly interesting technology with wonderful potential. I look forward to seeing the places they find to implement it in the US and abroad.
From laptops and Lumia to Surface and Xbox, get it at the Microsoft Store.
