What do you do when you take a pico projector, some iPhones/iPod touches and add a dash of creativity? Why, you come up with a mini police chase of course! Cooked up by the folks at The Theory, what they have done is taken a pico projector, threw in some images, recorded it with a Canon 5D DSLR and a HD cam and they have come up with a pretty realistic police chase, albeit a miniaturized one. According to them:
Directing duo The Theory presents the tiniest police chase ever seen, made using the world’s smallest ‘pocket video projectors’. Featuring an escaped convict, a determined cop and a fully armed police helicopter, Speed of Light takes ‘projection mapping’ to a whole new (and low) level.
Speed of Light was all projected and filmed FOR REAL – there’s no CGI trickery.
We have to admit that this is a pretty creative use of pico projectors and well, if you have a pico projector or if you were planning on getting the Samsung Galaxy Beam that was announced earlier this year at MWC, hopefully the video above will give you some ideas of what else you can use your pico projectors for!
