Disney’s SideBySide – Handheld Projectors for Gaming

SideBySide - Handheld Projector from Disney Research

We’ve found a great article describing some research that Disney has been doing. Chances are that you have been playing games on your mobile device, and perhaps even some of them are multi-player enabled. Disney Research has been developing technology around handheld projectors that are able to interact with each other.

While the concept is certainly impressive and very cool, I wonder how likely it is to catch-on. It would require some common surface to point at to play. I imagine most people are playing games while traveling (plan, car, etc) where it may not be very convenient for this kind of interaction. Regardless, it is great to see this kind of research and the practical applications can be figured out down the road!
