The turn from the 21st century ushered within an era filled with technologies and advances. These innovations make our way of life simpler in multiple ways, simplifying the most complex tasks and impacting almost every facet of society. With everyone just one call away and vital information just one look away, we have to understand the positive implications of these dynamic technology. However, every rose has its own thorn. The highly digitized world is responsible for us to get rid of your own touch. From kids as youthful as 5 years to seniors, nearly every age bracket is engrossed within their smartphones, tablets, laptops, etc. Searching from the interactive projector screen is becoming a hopeless task, and spending some time like a family? A completely rare affair. Disillusioned with this world where social interactions have grown to be a myth, product designer Troy Linklater in the design studio Alloy, produced ‘Orbit’.
Orbit is definitely an interactive projector on steroids! Formed just like a Minion, the matte black gadget offers an important feature that sets it aside from other projectors. Orbit connects together with your smartphone! Put the smartphone on the top from the projector watching as it’s magic unfolds! Whatever you decide to experience on screen of the smartphone is reflected to the corresponding surface Orbit continues to be placed upon. Outfitted with 4 ultra-short-throw projectors, Orbit projects a 360-degree interactive touch interface onto any surface. This type of visual experience results in a central focus for the whole family, letting them combined efforts to watch movies online and shows, participate in fun study sessions or perhaps have makeshift karaoke sessions to videos! Orbit offers to connect families together via a fun, interactive and visual experience. Although the projector continues to be an idea, we can’t wait for a day whenever we may use our smartphones to talk about a chuckle moments with this family members!
