Spotted this over at the pink tentacle. Really cool stuff!
Spotted at the International Stationery and Office Products Fair, this eye-catching digital signage system consists of a 0.3-millimeter-thick high-luminance rear-projection film (Vikuiti Rear Projection Film developed by 3M) applied to a 3-millimeter-thick glass substrate cut into the shape of a woman. A rear projector beams video onto the film, whose microbead-arrayed surface produces a crisp, brilliant image viewable from any angle, even in brightly lit environments.
The high luminance film by 3M is able to focus the light from the projector on a smaller than normal spot producing a sharp and clear projected video. Even in bright conditions! Amazing~!In dentistry 3M produces many of the materials we use daily and it really is impressive how a simply mining company which started out making sand paper is now a huge multinational conglomerate! Btw 3M stands for the Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing Company.
