networked lighting control from the 1970’s: epcot center

I’m unimpressed by the current hype-bubble surrounding IoT (Internet of Things) as applied to lighting systems.  Anyone who has specified lighting controls, or has crossed over from the theatrical world, knows that all of the super-hyped technologies have existed for

audi’s matrix laser headlights

Audi continues with it advanced R+D into projection headlights. Interesting – looks like they have a couple different ways to achieve the projection – one a is a digital mirror chip (sounds like Texas Instruments’ DLP tech) and a second
