The video presentation is really interesting!

I really wonder about the picture quality! If it is good this will truly be a revolutionary leap in technology.

Cool! Looks like it already showed at CES 2013 this past January. I haven't heard anything about it until your post though.

Wow. That is some seriously cool technology. The projector sits nearly underneath the screen, only 6" from the screen wall, and projects up at a steep angle. The screen has tiny reflective surfaces that bounce the light coming from below out to the user -- and it rejects light from basically any other angle. Brilliant! They say you can watch it in a fully lit room. Their video even shows watching it with direct sunlight hitting the screen, but that may be advertising hype.

If this really works, it would be a game-changer. This is what big-screen projection TV is supposed to be. It's currently $9k for the projector AND the rocket-science screen -- not at all out of line compared to some of the high-end digital projectors & screens people already use. If that price drops appropriately as the technology matures, it could get affordable for the less-than-wealthy-enthusiast pretty quickly.

I've seen this in person twice, once in a bright Carrefour, the other time in a dark room. It's DLP-based, so it's what you would expect from a DLP in terms of sharpness, uniformity, and contrast. The projector was about average brightness, so in a normally lit room I think it would work for sports, but not for watching TV shows or movies. I also didn't care for the texture of the screen, which was visible from normal viewing distances. Personally for this amount of money one could get a normal front projector with a DNP Supernova or SI Black Diamond screen and have a much larger and brighter image. I think the only benefits are the incredibly short throw distance, and of course the laser-based light engine that should be very stable over its long life.

I saw that about a year ago when i was researching Laser tech. But VDC has a similar system. Marquee 7000 or something

Here I found it

The VDC system appears to be significantly dimmer at 400 lumens per unit and is LED-based; the LG system claims 150 nits with its laser-light source, which is the equivalent of about 1300 lumens on a 1.0 gain 100" diagonal screen. The former seems to be aimed more at data/office applications whereas the LG is aimed at home installs.
