    An interesting idea, surely. =)

    Of course, for the computer geeks among us, that basic premise should be easily expandable by creating a GM program where the map is fed in, with commands for revealing rooms, corridors (or part thereof), secret doors/trap effects, and so on…

    After all, wouldn’t it be nice if the players were walking down the corridor, fail their spot check, and with a noise, the corridor on the table erupts into a flaming inferno…

    Hmm… interesting =)

    Go on Hal, there’s one on eBay right now currently at £51…

    Infocus Digital Projector on eBay

    You can pay by PayPal too! 😀

    Imagine doing the World’s Largest Dungeon this way…

    We have the laptops and the mapping software already…

    The gents with the Data Projector apparantly use Tabletop Mapper on their laptop.

    Grrr!

    Was reading Slashdot can came across this – http://inventgeek.com/Projects/HomeThea … eater.aspx

    Brilliant I thought – finally I can get a projector without a divorce! 🙂

    Can you buy lcd projection panels in the UK? No! 🙁

    So, if you’re based Stateside, here’s a really cheap way to get the perfect mapper (some work required).

    Riddles (who’s hopes were raised & then dashed…)

    I personally like this gaming table: http://www.agyris.net/v3/ugt/default.asp

    Not really a projector type table, but neat none-the-less.

    Ah, but you could project on top of that! (or, given the size of it, from underneath I think).

    And I wanna projector! 🙁

    Apparently they’re a good surface to project onto… 🙂

    I will have a projector, oh yes, it will be mine… 😈
