Desktopography — Source:

If you are tired of the dull lamp, used for lighting, they can always be replaced by something more technologically advanced. On Desktopography, for example. This light projector is suitable for regular cartridge and turns any surface into a holographic image, with which you can interact.

For example, Desktopography allows to project on the Desk calculator, or a calendar with a task list that will respond to touch. Therefore, the user can change their location by touching one or more fingers.

If the table will be a cat or a user decides to put on a virtual calendar, a Cup of tea, the system using sensors will determine that the former vacancy now occupied, yourself and then move the projected calendar to another place.

In addition, projections can be «snap» certain items, then they will be automatically displayed on the usual things, even if you redecorate.

The Gadget consists of, in fact, the projector, depth sensor and a computer which controls all processes. This development will expand the scope of augmented reality, thus freeing the owner from having to fill the office or apartment a large number of sensors, and other sensors.

The Prototype Desktopography looks promising, but before it appears (if at all) in the sale, it'll take a long time. The developers believe that will be able to bring the gadget to mind in the next five years — these are the dates that will need to eliminate all shortcomings, to clothe the computer and other pieces of iron in a compact body and correct positioning errors that occur when interacting with the projected objects.
