Led by Brett Jones, co-founder & CEO, and Phil Reyneri, Design Director, Lightform is a computer and 3d scanning device that when connected to any video projector, lets people quickly scan complex scenes and turn any object into a screen.

The device’s core technology is known as projection mapping, which is a form of augmented reality.
