Innovation Design Engineer

I'm Pierre Paslier, I study Innovation Design Engineering at the Royal College of Art, London. Here I keep track of my everyday life as a designer.

Good progress on the laser projector. Now I can write IDE! I now have 5 laser diodes generating 75 pixels. View high resolution

New promo video of GravitySketch! Discover the future of 3d content generation

A definitive improvement today. Reprinted a laser diode holder and added 2 diodes. The code is still quite messy but got me to draw a little wave animation. With 3 diodes I have now 21 pixels! Let’s make more.

Back and forth. Playing with delays.

First test of the proto rig with the diode on.

Tiny mockup of the principle for this laser projector.

Im starting to work on a laser projector. I’ve seen a couple of cool posts on Hackaday and I think it would really fit the advanced activism project. Imagine you could project a message or video 400 meters away on a building you could never get access to. Buckingham palace? MI6?
The setup consists of a laser diode shooting at a rotating set of mirrors. The sync is done by a IR encoder that changes state every time it sees the flag attached to the rotating mirrors. 
I’m just starting to get it all assembled. For the moment my aim is to control on line created by one diode. If it works well I’d try to have an array of diodes creating a screen. View high resolution
