Over on the MapTools forums Plothos one of the forum members was working on this. However, RL and the constant grind of updating his macros/framework, he stopped. He made me a really nice Warforged Warden when I was playing 4E with him.

I saw that it was a neat idea. Sort of made me think of someone getting 4 more projectors and doing the sides to them too... Part of me thinks tho that if your going to put blocks down then you might as well print card and stick to the top of them and use them like a normal raised up battle mat. Still its definitely is a good idea. There was this uber cool vid I saw a while back that I need to post if I can find the link where someone was doing shape recognition of stuff on a flat board using a projector and a web cam and then once it had figured out the 3D nature of the board it was projecting stuff down on to it based on the 3D... right - google skillz....
Here we are...
Now look at 3 mins in to see the basics and then 3:50 or so with the car to really see how the blocks could be used. Ok bit overkill but with a little battery and some wifi or IR or something simple you could get all sorts of blank blocks, build a castle or whatever using any blocks and then hit a button and shade it all digitally.
RedRobes, that was cool.
that was really neat.. but I want projectors IN my car to change colors when needed (like after a bank heist *lol*)
