Just yesterday, we were talking of Microsoft’s cool projection powered OmniTouch system, and it is not the only one rocking the projection arena. Developed by DisneyResearch, SideBySide is an interactive system that allows people to collaborate, work together or simply play a game; anytime, anywhere.

The system magically interacts with projection beams, where one user can project an image to a surface, and it becomes “aware” of any projections around itself. SideBySide uses a hybrid mobile projector that outputs both visible and invisible beams. While the visible ones form the projections we see, the invisible beams allow location tracking, looking for other projections and transfer of data.
