Pip! (Parallel Interactive Projector) by Jorge Prieto
2012 - 2013, Silver A' Digital and Electronic Devices Design Award Winner
Inspiration
In our days, we depend too much on our Smartphones, for our work or personal lives. It is great to stay in touch with the people you love, but at what cost? The time we spend using our devices grows while the time spent with our relatives in real life is reduced. Not only that but it also consumes a huge amount of battery during the day, having to charge them every night. What can we do?
Creativity
PIP or the Parallel Interactive Projector was created to lesser the dependence we have today in our Smartphones. By connecting them to the PIP device through a simple app, we can control our Smartphone through a tactile projection on the wall or through voice commands while we save precious battery and time.
Design Challenges
The hardest part was creating an interactive projection of the Smartphone screen. We searched for the best solution and at the end we decided to integrate an infrared laser under the projector which creates a thin layer over the projection. When you press any part of the projected screen and you "break" through the infrared layer, the position of your finger is sent to the PIP device which automatically activates the part pressed on your Smartphone screen and projects it in less than a second.
Production Technology
The PIP white case is separated in two pieces that share the same molds and are created by plastic injection. This case can be opened from the bottom to introduce and adjust to the case the led projector with sensor, infrared diode, HD cam for videoconferences, integrated microphone and speakers which surround the device covered by a cylindric fabric soft grille. A synchronizing module is installed inside as well as a rail system so the case can open and close easily when activated.
