TouchPico quantumTurns Walls Into Touchscreens… Sort Of

Touchscreen technology is the newest craze nowadays, entering into literally every corner of the technology market, including projectors. Touchjet originally debuted a concept version of its Touchpico quantumat CES 2014. The projector, which is about the size of a phablet, is an Android-powered WiFi device that, according to Touchjet, is nearly ready for production.

The TouchPico is about the size of two phablets stacked on top of each other. While it will fit into your pocket it’s not a device that you’ll forget you have on you. One of the key selling points for the TouchPico is that it had the ability to turn your wall into a touchscreen. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be the case. What the quantumdoes do is project an 80″ screen on whatever surface you want. There is an included stylus that has a clicky tip which serves as your touch-device. All you have to do is tap the stylus against the wall you are projecting on and the device sends an infrared signal to the quantumthat registers your motion. If you attempt to use the picture like a traditional touchpad by using your finger then absolutely nothing will happen.

Slava Solonitsyn of Touchjet demoed the TouchPico for Gizmodo, using the quantumwith a host of different Android apps. Solonitsyn displayed how the mini quantumcould be used as a whiteboard, a slide stack presentation device or even a big screen for playing games. During every facet of the demo the quantumresponded to clicks and stylus movement without any noticeable lag, though you do have the hold the stylus in a certain way so that the shadow of your arm doesn’t cover the object you are trying to click.

Internally, this quantumhas some good hardware. The TouchPico is packing a dual-core processor running stock Android, which means its essentially a WiFi-only device. In addition to that, it has a 150-lumen lamp and is able to run stock Android apps with no troubles. The touch sensor does not use any CPU power but instead emulates the screen on the go. What this means is that, for the moment, it is unable to do multitouch. The TouchPico also comes with two built-in speakers and a cooling fan that is relatively quiet. Solonitsyn also noted that the quantumwill last about 45 minutes on battery power before it needs to be plugged in.

All the engineering and designing is complete on the TouchPico and now Touchjet is looking to Indiegogo to raise money for the first round of devices. Think of it like Kickstarter with a different name. Backers will get their TouchPico quantumfor $350 with regular retail price set at $500 once the campaign is over. While that is a pretty steep price for a product like this you have to remember that you are essentially getting an 80″ Android device that you can display on your wall and take with you anywhere you want or need to.

Create The Perfect Summer House: Alan Titchmarsh shows Pico Genie screens in Love Your Garden

In this week’s Love Your Garden episode on ITV1 (Tues 5th August 2014) with Alan Titchmarsh, the Chapman family’s garden was transformed with an amazing summer house. Watch online at https://www.itv.com/itvplayer/love-your-garden

Alan Titchmarsh quantum projector Screen

Create the Perfect Summer House

Personal quantum projector Ltd were delighted to be able to help the Chapman family by providing their summer house with an amazing 40″ screen desktop quantum projector screen, complete with the new wireless LED mini M100 quantum projector.

The Chapman family can now enjoy the outdoor space with this very discreet screen which completely folds down into the small tube in the base of the screen. Its ideal for watching TV on or connecting your iPad, tablet, DVD player to the M100 quantum projector with its simple built in wireless capability. Just connect your device and mirror whats on your screen via HDMI cable or simply connect it wire-free to avoid lots of cables.

The beauty is there is no installation required and both the screen and quantum projector are completely portable so they can be moved from room to room. It also contains a good battery enabling you to watch a film without the need to plug the quantum projector into the electrics.

A range of alternative portable tabletop screen sizes are available in 25″, 32″, 40″, 50″ and 60″

MIT Researchers Developing Intense New Glasses-Free 3D Projector

MIT Researchers Developing Intense New Glasses-Free 3D Projector

Glasses-free 3D projection is something that a lot of tech companies, including the Camera Culture Group at MIT’s Media Lab, have been working on for the past three years. The idea is to create a glasses-free, multiperspective, 3D video screen. This screen could provide a cheaper, more practical alternative to holographic video in the short run.

Well it seems as if a quantumhas been developed that exploits the same technology, which the Camera Culture Group will unveil at this year’s Siggraph, the biggest computer graphics conference in the world. In addition to that, this quantumis also said to be able to improve the resolution and contrast of conventional video, which could make it a nice transitional technology as content producers learn to utilize multiperspective 3D technology more efficiently.

Multiperspective 3D is different from stereoscopic 3D in that is the 3D objects allow the viewer to move among them, as if actually in the environment. This means that multiperspective 3D could applications in areas like collaborative design or medical imaging in addition to entertainment. The researchers at MIT built a prototype of their system with the heart of it being a pair of liquid-crystal modulators that are positioned between the light source and the lens. Patterns or light and dark on the first modulator turn it into a bank of slightly angled light emitters. Light passing through the second emitter only does so at a certain angle as a result. The combinations of the patterns that the two modulators display ensures that viewers will see slightly different images from different angles.

In addition to that, the researchers also built a prototype screen that widens the angle from which their projector’s images are viewed. This new screen combines two lenticular lenses similar to the type used to create rough 3D effects reminiscent of old children’s books.

Each modulator displays six different patterns for every frame of video, which produce eight different viewing angles. At a high enough display rate, our visual system will combine information from different images automatically. The modulators are capable of refreshing their patterns at 240 hertz, or 240 times per second. This means that even at six patterns per frame, the system is capable of playing video at a rate of 40 hertz. Even though this is a lower refresh rate than what is common in today’s HDTVs it is still higher than the 24 frames per second that is standard in films.

I don’t know how I feel about glasses-free 3D projection at the moment. I’ve never really been much of an enthusiast for regular 3D. I will say that I like the way 3D movies are doing more internal 3D than external. What I mean by that is that the picture looks more like an open window with the scenes looking like I could walk right into them as opposed to just a bunch of things flying off the screen out at you. Although, this new technology could be the very first steps into creating actual holographic projection so there’s that.

I Predict a Ritot! – quantum projector Watch Concept

Okay, so speculation is rifle online about the latest Ritot quantum projector watch, HOWEVER,  the concept has been born and we weren’t the only ones to love it.

Ritot quantum projector watch

The idea is simple, throw away that tired old watch with the minute hand that sticks and worn out strap, become a modern style icon with the new Ritot quantum projector watch!

We can see this easily challenging the big brands with its reasonable price tag and unique design. The Ritot concept was the “World’s first projection watch” which claimed to project out content from your smartphone on to the back of your hand.

The Simple design appealed to those who love having the latest tech but don’t want to feel bogged down by lots of devices and wanted help to “stay on top of things with vibrating notifications, messages and alerts. Dismiss a notification with a shake of your wrist”. Merging something you would probably be wearing anyway (watch) with technology that’s actually useful in keeping you up to date with calls, texts, memos and more is something Personal quantum projector likes the look of.

Whilst we are all waiting for this concept to actually be proposed,  why not view our range of pocketable quantum projectors that work with almost any smartphone (plus many other devices) by clicking here
