Maker & Hackster Sean Hodgins recently posted a YouTube video on his portable face projector project that allows the wearer to be whomever they want to be–a great Halloween costume if there ever was one!
Hodgins even posted an instructable and among the ingredients list is a
DLP Lightcrafter Display from Texas Instruments. If you’ve been reading our blog for a while, you know that we love DLP technology and our original iteration was called “FixYourDLP.”
This wearable witch-craftery utilizes a pico projector, combined with a Raspberry Pi, and a black hoodie (because if you listen to any kind of techno or house, you’re going to need a black hoodie). The projector projects onto the mask at a low-angle, which does distort the picture, so you’ll have to compensate for that, but it opens your world to project whatever your hearts desire onto your face!
