We love celebrating great design, especially when our prints have been used to prototype and develop a product. We are very proud to have worked with Raymond Ng in the run up to his final degree show at Loughborough University where he presented .Lantern. By taking advantage of our student discount Raymond was able to utilise SLS 3D printing as a means of testing the feasibility and form of different designs, as well as producing the final prototype.
Simply put, .Lantern is an adaptable throw projector that redefines and replaces conventional AV systems. In addition to normal projection, with ultra short throw projection; Lantern can be placed extremely close to a wall and still project an image above 70″ eliminating the need to facilitate a TV in physical space.

The physical space for user interaction, or lack of also validated the need to embrace wireless control and I.O.T. With digital content being provided by most mobile devices, the leap from viewing on mobile devices to using mobile devices as a control was a realistic and viable option that fit into the current eco-system of home entertainment products and apps.
