Projection mapping projects at sudoRoom in collaboration with Noisebridge and the cartoonists of San Francisco

We have a common light projector to be shared by all named Homer
Sanyo the Magic Turtle
We have a massively huge Sanyo projector with 14,000 lumens!
It's a Sanyo Model # PLC-XF46N Chassis # KF6-XF46N01
Here are his stats: https://www.projectorcentral.com/Sanyo-PLC-XF46N.htm
The bulbs all work and it's relatively non problematic to hook up he usb-c to the VGA
- 12,000 ANSI Lumens <-- this is bright enough to light up a screen in daylight baby!
Fabian the Silver Screen
We have a silver screen that's great for projections named Fabian. According to Jake, Fabian is completely capable of receiving projections for 3D movies! Quite exciting. Fabian is usually folded up in a tripod in the upper loft of SudoRoom
Homer the light projector
Homer is a purple Benq PB8220 - in time we will be decorating him with a face, but he's still growing into his role. He comes in a carrying case and isn't bolted into place anywhere.
While Homer doesn't have any HDMI outlets, we do have an S-Video to HDMI connector so we can connect him to anything that works with HDMI (USB-C and lightning for example)
|Thing||What is the thing||Comment|
|Brightness||2,200 Lumens||So bright it can be projected against the sudoroom ceiling with all the lights on!|
|Resolution||1024x768||Works for me!|
|DLP Technology||Less visible pixels more portability!||Confused - if it's DLP doesn't that mean we don't have to focus? there are focus knobs on it though|
|Energy||330 Volts||If we're going to plug homer into the wall we need a battery that goes up to 330 Volts|
|Connectors||HDMI -> S Video||I just ordered an HDMI -> S-Video but that's going to be what Homer needs!|
The BenQ PB8220 Projector is a XGA Portable Projector. This lamp based projector is capable of displaying 2,200 Lumens at its brightest setting with a native resolution of 1024x768 . The internal DLP technology touts higher contrast, less visible pixels and more portability. This projector was first available for purchase in April 2003 and has been discontinued by BenQ.
There's a lot of great stuff out there, but what stands out are projects that speak to the human condition.
