LuminAR - a robot that a has a pico-projector, camera and wireless computer

The LuminAR is a project from MIT that "reinvents the traditional incandescent bulb and desk lamp, evolving them into a new category of robotic, digital information devices". The LuminAR Bulb combines a Pico-projector, camera, and wireless computer in a compact form factor. It has a gestural user interface, and just-in-time projected information. LuminAR transforms surfaces and objects into interactive spaces that blend digital media and information with the physical space. Interested? Check out the video below:

The team is using Microvision's Show-WX laser projector, one of the few that has a focus-free image. It retails for $549.
