Futuristic mobile projector system
You already know the benefits of projector screens when making a presentation to a room full of people. You can display the screen of your personal computer onto a large surface for all to see. However, there is a drawback. What do you do when your presentation doesn’t involve you standing still, right next to the projector screen, or the place at which you’re presenting doesn’t have a projector? Microsoft has come up with a unique solution. With a shoulder mounted projector, you can take your presentation with you, wherever you go.
Microsoft’s newest technology allows you to project your phone or PC on any flat surface, including walls, pads of paper, or anything else you deem worthy. However, that’s not the coolest feature of the shoulder mounted projector. It’s also multi-touch. This means you can use the projected image as a touchscreen, just like on your phone or tablet. Microsoft uses a similar technology to the Kinect motion-sensor, so you have all the useful features of your phone or tablet—swipe, pinch-to-zoom, and tap—on any surface you want. It’s all there, which allows you to be more flexible and fluid when it comes to making that presentation.
Think of the possibilities. If you’re a real estate agent, for instance, you can use Microsoft’s shoulder mounted system while you’re showing a house to a client without everyone crowding around your little phone screen or having to meet back at your office. You can do everything that you normally do at your office without actually being there. If you’re a lawyer, you can draw up contracts for electronic signature by aiming the projector at the table or wall for everyone to sign.
The technology will only get better
While this technology is still new, Microsoft is looking for ways to refine it. For starters, they understand how cumbersome the shoulder mounted system can be. It’s large, moderately heavy and uncomfortable, nerdy, and the wires can get in the way. However, the technology is still unique and has the potential to revolutionize how you present information. The technology will only get better from here on out.
