Fog based screen projection


FogScreen is a company that makes screens for use with an ordinary projector. The only weird thing, is that the screens are made up entirely of fog. No special chemicals or ingredients are necessary. Simple water is good enough. Pretty cool. You can even walk through the projection without getting wet. No word on how much it costs, though I doubt it is cheap. I would love to get one of these for my house. Though, I probably couldn't afford it. Also, I don't own a projector. Still pretty amazing.

Check out the official site for some videos and more pictures of the screens in action.

    FogScreen Launches New FogScreen One Projection Screen for Ultimate Eye-Catching Experience

    Multiple Projection Screens Can Seamlessly Interconnect to Create Desired Effect

    SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – July 17, 2007 – FogScreen, Inc., creators of the world’s first “walk-through” projection screen, today announced the release of the FogScreen™ One projection screen. The simple yet stunning device now allows a deeper breadth of creativity wherever there is a desire to attract a crowd and visually capture interest.

    The one-meter-wide (3’ 3”) screen is seamlessly linkable with additional FogScreen One projection units. The result is a screen of “dry fog” that is customizable to any size for any venue – with no gaps between the adjoining screens. There is no limit to how many One units can be linked together. The larger setups are ideal for live stage events and where larger effects are desired. The smaller setup is ideal for more intimate settings. The control units provide the ability to synchronize and control images across any set of screens, enabling designers to create any effects imaginable.

    “The FogScreen One projection unit has upped the ante for projection screens everywhere,” said Jorden Woods, President of U.S. Operations at FogScreen. “With the ability to interlink and control multiple screens in any configuration, dazzling an audience is even easier. Video, vibrant images and interactive laser effects can now captivate people on a walk-through projection screen of any width.”

    The FogScreen One projection screen can greatly increase rental revenues for audio and visual rental companies and experience an unbeatable 300% ROI for just one rental. Not only are the units flexible – they can be kept separate or linked together according to needs – it is a new and creative way to provide clients with stunning visual capabilities.

    The FogScreen One projection screen follows the success of the original two-meter-wide (6’ 6”) FogScreen™ Inia projection screen. Both utilize the patented technology to create the world’s first walk-through projection screen made of microscopic fog droplets, enabling vibrant colors and images to literally float in the air. To see the FogScreen in action, go to www.fogscreen.com/en/sales/FogScreen_Videos.html.
