Projections

The future of projection

The watch projection is something I wouldn’t mind wearing, it doesn’t appear ‘in your face’ and can be quickly looked at without having to bring anything out of your pocket- i.e smart phone. Imagine out for a run and needing directions- could this be the perfect idea for a map?

The wall projection would work well in many different surroundings such as school class rooms, work meetings, homes, and personal use.

Yet again, another example of exciting possibilities for the future of technology.
