Microsoft SecondLight

You’ve got to check out this video of a presentation given by Microsoft engineers at the Professional Developers Conference in LA. I was completely racking my brain trying to figure out how it worked, which made the reveal on the (relatively simple) mechanics of the technology at the end a lot of fun. The first application that comes to my mind is interactive retail displays. What other practical uses are there?

  1. I think it works by adjusting the zooming of multiple video projectors that are present _inside_ that surface computing platform. So some projectors are projecting e.g. the actual mag on the surface of that table/glass and the second projector projects the street view on the piece of paper that’s being held up and above the surface of that table/glass.
