Although primarily aimed at film, music, and interactive media, SxSW has also become a prime opportunity for some companies to show off products and ideas that lie at the intersection of technology and the arts. Sony has already pre-announced that it would indeed be at the event, showing off some rad prototypes like the "N" from its newly announced Future Lab. Apparently, it wasn't the only head turner from the company, which might have been this "smart projector" that turns any flat surface into an interactive table.

Crash Bandicoot PS2 mod is complete with Aku Aku mask

There are a few titles that really stand out when I think about the original PlayStation. Final Fantasy VII, Spyro the Dragon, and of course, Crash Bandicoot. Sadly, only two of these series are still alive and well (okay, I wouldn't say that Skylanders is doing Spyro any real justice) with poor Crash being left out in the cold.

Sony’s Future Lab Program will let users in on R&D ideas

Many companies, especially tech ones, have research and development divisions and groups, but almost all of those happen behind close doors. Sony, surprisingly, is taking a daring, and perhaps risky, contrary approach, at least for some of its technologies. With its new Future Lab Program, it is opening the doors wide to its technological R&D, inviting users to be part at least of the conceptual and prototyping stages. It is the beginning of a new culture that will kick off when Sony unveils "N", the first Future Lab project, at SxSW next week.
