Shader Printer Concept from daniel saakes on Vimeo.


We introduce a novel concept of a stateful projector display that uses bi-stable color changing inks. We augment non-planar and complex painted surfaces by projecting high resolution imagery that persist on target surfaces, last without requiring additional power, and are rewritable. Our ”shader printer” concept is useful for various applications that are not catered by traditional displays or fabrication technologies. For instance, fashion items such as shoes or bags, wallpapers, and floors can be updated frequently. Design prototypes can be tested outside the laboratory environment in outdoors and in real-use scenarios. Another application could be very large size, high resolution information displays that are constantly updated.
