Throw ration: 0.37: 1
Screen size: 1200 cm or smaller (l) x 560 cm (b)
Hence 1200×0.37=44.4 cm Projector has to be this distance away from the screen.

I lost my projector design file.
I wonder if it is worth the effort to create the inflatable. It doesn’t look good 🙁
I searched for cantilever products to come up with a clean and sleek solution, and was inspired by the following items:

Corrected the base curvature to be able to tilt at wider angle.
Tilt angle: 11.22 degrees, left and right.
Inspired by organic shapes from orchids.
This one tilts very well in prototype.
Inspired from sail boats arrangement

• Space between chairs
Choice of technology: Tilt Sensor
Goal: To measure the angle of tilting as the Read more →
Explored patterns (octopus/cephalopod skin cells) to be projected onto the model:
The designs with the projected patterns looked really heavy and messy.
Tried rendering with a simpler pattern:
Rendered a gif to explore how the product lights up:
Rounded the sharp corners at the front and tried rendering with a different material:
Make the back thicker (1.5″ / 40mm) and round the corners Read more →
Things to include while detailing (& Observations from sail ships):tensional strings to hold down the structures and the connection Rain cover (using tensile screens) Fabric joints (because large pieces of fabric are joint by many smaller pieces) bulge within pieces of fabric because of inflation
Updates on the detailing (& Eye level view)Opted for a less exaggerated inflation Read more →
