About the Project

The history of projection is filled with innovations for transporting images through light – from magic lanterns, cinematographs, and slide projectors to modern 4k projectors. And yet, projection still has limits, such as high cost, material fragility, high energy consumption, and bulky size. Plus, digital image quality is significantly lower compared to analogue. And regardless of all the technological progress, projection is still geared towards watching videos indoors, ignoring the imaginative possibilities of outdoor projection. VISIO has been created to overcome all these limits, and to bring still projection out of the shadow of animated projection.

Reality Check

  • Claim:

    Mobile

  • Reality:

    The whole concept of VISIO is based on the foundational function of mobility.

  • Claim:

    Analogue picture has a photographic quality that goes far beyond digital projection

  • Reality:

    The quality of an analogue camera is traditionally much better quality than average digital cameras, and to the point of VISIO's claim analogue does not have the pixel dilemma.

  • Claim:

    Thanks to its interchangeable items, all 35mm photographic lens can be mounted to VISIO

  • Reality:

    The "modular" element of the VISIO allows for many options when it comes to the different lens attachments

  • Claim:

    All the items already exist except for the slide holder ring

  • Reality:

    A creative design supports the function of the VISIO that uses already existing parts to make it work. The only piece that is originally designed for the VISIO is the slide itself.

  • Claim:

    3 hour battery

  • Reality:

    Specs add up to allow 3 hours of use, but also requires 8 hours of charging in advance.

Bottom Line

VISIO is a device that gives the end user an option for a photo projector on the go. With the engineering in mind to use parts that all exist, for the most part, the VISIO is supported by existing tech, passionate creators, and a lot of possibilities. Consider how bright the projector will be on a building from a long distance in a bright city.
