Syndiant Contest Seeks “Cool” Ideas for Pico Projectors
DALLAS, Nov. 12, 2010 — Syndiant, a manufacturer of high-resolution microdisplays for pico projectors, is holding a contest to explore creative ideas and uses for pico projectors. Its all-digital VueG8 (“View-Gate”) technology frees consumers from the constraints of small electronic devices and provides a viewing gateway to share high-resolution images.
The company believes that the uses and applications of pico projectors are endless and is eager to see the creative ideas that techies, gadget gurus or college engineering students have up their sleeves. For inspiration, it suggests considering applications in the following areas:
•Smart appliances for anywhere in the home
•Aids to the visually impaired or elderly
•Education (Teachers: Get your students thinking!)
•Near-to-eye glasses – either 2-D or 3-D
•Nonsee-through for an immersive experience
•Gesture recognition user interface combination
•Wireless update of video content
“We have produced some very cool applications for pico projectors at Syndiant, but we thought it would be fun to see what individuals and the next generation of engineers can come up with,” said Mark Harward, CEO. “We hope to receive many unique ideas, which will make it a challenge to decide who submits the coolest application for pico projectors. But I think we’re up to the task.”
If an individual submits the winning “cool” idea, as determined by the Syndiant executive team, he or she will receive an iPad. The runner-up will receive an iPod nano.
In the event that a college engineering class or team submits the winning or runner-up idea, a monetary donation will be made to the college’s engineering department.
Entries must sufficiently and completely describe in writing the idea and its use. Graphic renderings and drawings can be submitted with the entry to more fully explain the concept.
The contest began Nov. 9, 2010, and will end at 11:59 p.m. EDT on Dec. 15, 2010.
Winners will be announced during the Consumer Electronics Show 2011 in Las Vegas, Jan. 6-9, 2011, and do not need to be present to win. Prizes will be shipped to winners.
