Nick Gentle - Concept Proposal

My concept is essentially a theoretical interactive "lightsaber".

Inspired by "laser harp": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLVXmsbVwUs

Very hypothetical representation...

The "lightsaber" itself would be a tangible object that you could use (turn on, swing around, turn off). However, the rest of the experience would entail a large room (the presentation room next door to the classroom would be ideal) in which six projectors would be utilized to project on each wall (north, south, east, west) as well as one projecting on the ceiling and one on the floor. Each projector would probably be connected to an individual computer as well as light sensors. The sensors would react with the lightsaber's beam and consequently react with the projection. So, how you react to the projection using the lightsaber would result in how the projection changes. The environment would be tailored to how you use the lightsaber in the "virtual world" being projected all around you.
