Wearable projection computer project: Internet ‘sixth sense’

A group of MIT students have developed a wearable computer that projects its display onto any nearby surface, and is controlled by hand gestures and voice-recognition.  A prototype was demonstrated at TED this week, capable of projecting a watch face onto the user's wrist after they trace a circle over it, capturing images framed by their fingers, and pulling up information about an individual and projecting it onto them during conversation.

Despite only just releasing the SDK for their multitouch Surface table, Microsoft have already updated the system with a second layer of projection functionality.  As well as the current projected display, the new SecondLight Surface is capable of throwing a second image onto any translucent material - for instance a piece of paper - held above the table.  Developed by the company's Cambridge, UK research arm, SecondLight can be used to display, say, an image of a car on the table-top together with a moveable cutaway schematic on a handheld screen held above.

Luminus PhlatLight LEDs set to replace projector bulbs

It's been a year and a half since we first saw a TV using Luminus Devices' PhlatLight LED back-lighting system, and it's taken that long for the technology to reach brightness levels sufficient for a big-screen picture.  Now, courtesy of some collaboration with Texas Instruments, PhlatLight technology is set for inclusion in a number of high-definition projectors to be released before the end of the year.
