Solution

An interactive paper lamp shade that lets users flip pages by rotating the shades. The product contains five parts, (1) the paper lamp shade, (2) mac mini, (3) leap motion sensor, (4) pico genie projector, and (5) the structure that holds all of it. The product can stand alone or it can be stacked together to form a wall, a fort , a shelf or any configuration of revolving interactive lamp shades.

What is the core principle of your idea?

A book you can "flip" inside a lampshade.

Can your idea be applied to different formats (in a bookstore, at a trade fair, at a conference)?

Yes.

Would it be possible to turn your idea into a reality, or at least create a prototype of it, at short notice, i.e. by the Frankfurt Book Fair in October 2014?

Yes.

What do you estimate the costs for the prototype or the final implementation of your idea to be?

Cost Breakdown: $600 (Mac Mini) + $100 (Leap Motion Sensor) + $320 (Pico Genie P50) + around $240 (Structure: plyboard<1sqm which is 4 euros + labor which can be around 175 euros per day) + TBD (paper) = a rough estimate of USD 1,300.00 per lamp
