Developer FAQs

How does Lampix work?

Lampix is a projection-based augmented reality device. Lampix uses advanced projection, depth-sensing, and object recognition technology.

How bright is the projection?

700 lumens.

What is the maximum size of the projection?

At its standard height of 35", the device's projection size is 43" x 27". If you mount Lampix higher or lower, the size and luminosity vary accordingly. Upon startup, Lampix calibrates and learns about its distance and orientation relative to the projection surface, so things work as expected.

Does the Lampix device make any noise?

The noise level is approximately 40dB. This is due to a total of 6 fans inside that dissipate the heat given off from the projection module, camera, and computer board.

Does the Lampix device use a lot of electricity?

The power supply that comes with Lampix is rated for 19V/4.74A, or 90W Max.

What type of power source does the Lampix device use?

110VAC up to 240VAC can be used. This covers all countries’ standard power line voltage levels. 

I live outside of the United States. Can I still purchase a Developer Kit?

Yes. We’re excited to offer the Lampix device internationally to the European Union. 

I am a developer. How can I use Lampix?

Lampix Developer Edition comes with several apps installed. These apps are open source and can be used as starting points for creating your own apps. Also, there is a growing set of API documentation. Additional API documentation will be added as we create new features.

Can you use Lampix with a friend in another location?

Yes, you are able to collaborate with other people who have a Lampix. As Lampix is a WiFi enabled device, you can create apps that communicate with other Lampix devices on local or remote networks. 

Does the Lampix device come with open API and example apps?

Yes, it includes the source code as well.

Is there a simulator available if I don’t purchase the device?

Yes. The simulator can be found here.

If I develop an app for the Lampix device, who owns the intellectual property?

The IP would belong to the app developer.

Are there any fees associated with the access to the API?

No, we are not planning fees for API access. At some point, we will have an option for cloud computing access which will require a paid monthly subscription.

Is it your intention to have an app store.

Yes, you can create apps and earn money by selling them to other Lampix users. In the future, we will have an app store where you can purchase apps using a credit card or PIX tokens.
