“World’s first” projection-mapped display unit launched
DisplayMapper, a division of British company Projection Artworks, has launched a 3D projection mapped display unit for the retail market. MirrorBox is a self-contained system that enables 3D projection mapping to be beamed onto physical products in a daylight-visible environment. Content is delivered via cloud-based software, controlled and updated from a central network. The simple and low-cost product could herald an era where projection mapping is a common sight in stores.
A digital art display platform from Japan with motion detection, available in two sizes - kickstarter video embedded below:
FRAMED is an Internet connected display that allows you to showcase artwork in a way that has never been done before.
Designed to be the world’s first canvas for the art of our generation, allowing you to experience and enjoy beautiful art within a normal, everyday setting. Perfect for creators and fans of visual culture alike, hang it on your wall, choose an artwork, and transform your space into a living, virtual gallery of creative expressions.
The evolution of technology and accessibility of the internet has brought out an expansive range and depth in digital art, and now, FRAMED can bring digital art into your everyday.
Over the course of a year, we’ve built two sizes (24-inch / 40-inch) with immense care and attention to craftsmanship. Every unit contains a gorgeous full-HD display, graphics processing, integrated inputs, and motion sensors within a mere 18mm (0.7 inches) in depth. We’ve created a minimalist object as the perfect backdrop for showcasing artwork, while maintaining powerful features to allow each frame to be totally unique, and exactly what you, the creator, makes of it.

Cindy Sherman, from Untitled Film Stills, 1977-1980
Other artists had drawn upon popular culture, but Sherman’s strategy was new. For her the pop-culture image was not a subject (as it had been for Walker Evans) or raw material (as it had been for Andy Warhol) but a whole artistic vocabulary, ready-made. Her film stills look and function just like the real ones—those 8-by-10-inch glossies designed to lure us into a drama we find all the more compelling because we know it is not real.
In theUntitled Film Stills there are no Cleopatras, no ladies on trains, no women of a certain age. There are, of course, no men. The sixty-nine solitary heroines map a particular constellation of fictional femininity that took hold in postwar America—the period of Sherman’s youth, and the ground-zero of our contemporary mythology. In finding a form for her own sensibility, Sherman touched a sensitive nerve in the culture at large. (via)
Richard Clarkson: Interactive Light shaped like a Cumulus Cloud
This wonderful interactive audiovisual fixture by Richard Clarkson’s inter-disciplinary design studio brings all of the thunder but none of the rain of a summer storm to your home’s interior. The “Cloud” thunder storm lamp and speaker system looks like a rain cloud on a leash that can even interact with people and sounds around it.
This smart little creative lamp is replete with lights, motion sensors, microphones, and a powerful speaker system. A remote control allows user to set it to different modes, getting it to act like a simple thunder cloud, to respond to movements in its surroundings, or to respond to sounds or music that it hears around it. The poofy outer layer definitely completes the illusion that we’re looking at a cloud.
