Video into air projection

Hi, I found this through a Podcast (

Project Video into Air

Architect Chad Dyner has created the Heliodisplay - a plug and play device that streams video and computer images into mid air from most video sources (TV, DVD, computer, videogame etc.) and lets you interact with it with either your hand or finger like a floating touch screen.

According to the website, air comes into the device and is then modified and ejected to produce the image. Nothing is added though, to the air so there isn`t any danger of harmful gas or liquid emitted from the device, and nothing needs to be refilled so its pretty easy to maintain. Currently available in a 15 inch version for $18,600.

Hi, I am Patrick and this my first blog. I got interested in blogging when I searched for so-called "Podcasts", the new thing on the internet.

In case you don't know: these are personal radioshows, made by amateurs and professionals, which you can receive as a mp3-file, through rss-feed with a program that allows you to subscribe to these feeds, or by downloading it from a web(log)site,
and then (automaticly) transferred to your iPod, or other mp3-player.
There are special programs developed for this, like iPodder, Jager etc. Various websites provide downloads and information about this. To name a few:,,, Check it out!

I think this is what the internet should be: an international communicationcenter where people from all over the world can share their thoughts and views, music, pictures.
These audioblogs are fun to listen to, certainly more fun then reading a text in your browser and in the near future i want to add my own audioblogs to my weblog.

Feel free to comment on this.

Greetings to all of you,
