Phyxel is a realistic display that makes a desired physical object appear at spatially pixelated locations. The created image appears to be essentially real and can be manipulated, like a virtual image. Toward the realization of Phyxel, it is essential to closely coordinate the lighting and motion for the perceptual reality. In the developed system, we manipulate the motion of various objects at high speed and control their perceived locations by projecting a computed lighting pattern using a 1000-fps 8-bit high-speed projector. We can utilize this novel visual media in various fields, such as entertainment, digital signage, design industry, exhibition, and so on. We introduce three type of feasible applications.
