    This is a wedding cake baked by Meals For Reals and animated by DJ and lighting company Posh Entertainment using a 3-D mapped projector. It works perfect for displaying Donkey Kong. Less perfect for Pac-Man. And that 3-D pipes Windows screensaver just looked f***ing awful. ... / Continue →

    This is a video demo of the Leia Display System. Like other similar systems being developed, it projects video on a wall of barely visible fog to give the illusion of a hologram floating in space. That's also why they called it the Leia, after Princess Leia. Granted i don't... / Continue →

    This is a new 3-D projection system. It projects images on a stream of controlled fog. *unzipping* "Fog, GW -- NOT urine." *zipping up* That's cool, I can't control my stream anyways. A new, truly 360-degree 3-D display has been developed by researchers at Osaka Universit... / Continue →

    Note: I know that screencap looks pretty booboo but I promise the video is actually cool. Hit the jump to watch it. This is a video of a samurai fighting some sort of shadow spirit made out of CG crows or some shit. I'm not really sure, but eventually it takes the form of ... / Continue →

    Oh I'm sorry -- did I catch you just getting out of the shower again? Don't worry, I'll look away (as soon as I hit record on my webcam), I swear. Hey -- and what's up with all the BEEP BOOP BOP-ing in the background? WHY IS THAT TRASHCAN IN YOUR BEDROOM?! A University of A... / Continue →

    The Portrait Projecting Ring was designed by Luke Jerram for his wife Shelina. It's a ring that can project the image from an interchangeable slide in the band when a light is shined through. Wow Luke, thanks for making the rest of us look like a bunch of unromantic asshats. ... / Continue →

    Popular Science reader Brian De Vitis (truth in Brian) went and stuffed eight different gaming consoles into a life-size model of R2-D2. Can you name all of them? Because I can. I'm just not going to because I don't feel like it. SO THERE. I love wire tangles! Hit the jum... / Continue →

    This is a projection system designed to work with a pool table that creates all sorts of crazy animations while you're trying to sink your balls. I want one pretty badly, but not $80K badly. It doesn't even come with a table! In addition to this setup, where the balls reveal... / Continue →

    This is a recording of a wicked video projection show perfectly mapped to the front of a mansion in England. You've just got to see it to believe it. It's sort of long, but I recommend watching at least the first minute and then skipping around (there's even some Pac-Man acti... / Continue →

    The brainiacs at MIT have gone and created a 'sixth sense' device, which is basically a smart phone/camera/projector combo small enough to be worn on your face like my fist. KA-POW! Also, it does stuff, and won't leave you bruised. The device...can turn any surface into a to... / Continue →

    Apparently a computer went blue screen of death during the opening ceremonies at the Olympics a few days ago. Yep, right when a flying Li Ning was about to wrap up the torch-lighting ceremony too. No idea what the screen was actually supposed to be displaying, but if I had to... / Continue →

    This is a video of Obscura Digital demonstrating their multi-touch software with Musion's Eyeliner 3D holographic projector. It's pretty neat. But you know what? I'm getting sick and tired of all these multi-touch demos where it seems the extent of what you can so is shuffle... / Continue →
