This is like those interactive projections in the malls. A projector (with DLP in it) projects an image on the floor or on the wall and kids can interact with the objects in the image. It is a great idea to apply this technology to touch screen. Good thinking. TI.

Old TVs don't need carrying, they just just go up in smoke :-) Structured light is a good example of lateral-thinking to solving a difficult or insoluble problem (3D image analysis) simply by re-writing the problem (structuring the illumination). Can't do it for all cases, but there are markets for this partial solution.

thank you @ghova, how heavy is your DLP TV? I moved recently and had to pay someone to take my old Sony CRT TV, it was soooo heavy ;-)...Kris

AFAIK Mitsubishi is the only current maker of DLP TVs. Their drawback is that they're up to a foot thick. They have the advantage of having a wider color gamut than LCDs or plasmas. $1600 got me 65" of gorgeous 1080p. Try that with an LCD.

That's great that TI has found a new use for their mirror MEMs. Since TVs have gone to LCD, the only use left for the DLP is projectors and very large screen TVs.
