Augmented reality lamp uses a Raspberry Pi to detect orientation and project images

Nord Projects Lantern “transforms any surface into an ambient, smart interface.”  It uses the Android Things OS and scripts written by Nord Projects to project different images onto surfaces, depending on the orientation of the lamp, which is detected by an onboard accelerometer. They are intending to bring out several scripts for the project including the delightful Space Porthole which projects the night sky onto the ceiling, as if you’d knocked a hole through! You can find out how to build your own over on Nord’s website where they’ve brought together a bill of materials and very clear instructions.

Thanks to Raspberry Pi for spotting this one.
