The technology of the future is a lamp. More specifically, it’s a lamp that augments an interactive, computer-generated projection onto any surface. Lampix, the company behind the eponymously named product isn’t interested in simply replacing your monitor, they want to fundamentally change the way we think about computing by creating a device that perfectly marries natural, human gestures with cutting-edge technology.
Just to reiterate because this is such an amazing concept — Lampix turns any surface whether it be a coffee table, desk, bar, kitchen counter etc. into a functional, augmented computer. Inside their modern-looking lamp is a high definition projector, camera, and cloud tracking system that interprets simple movements and an ever-growing list of products.
One of Lampix’s strengths is making collaboration in and outside the office easier. With Lampix, you can place a piece of paper down on the smart surface, have the cloud register your document, connect with anyone else on the planet, and have them see your pen markings in real time. Not only that, but your collaborator can mark that page from their computer screen using their mouse, or a Lampix if they have one. But this only the beginning.
What Lampix Can Do Right Now
Provide information and take action
Lampix has already partnered with high profile clients such as BMW, Bloomberg, Nespresso, and PwC for case studies, and the API is open to software engineers to develop and program their own apps. It’s the reason they’re offering a 50% discount on Kickstarter for hardware that will retail upwards of $700 a unit. Lampix knows that by opening up the software to developers they will not only broaden the potential audience with a wider variety of applications but also ensure quality performance across the platform.
