Marshall Capps

Software Systems Engineer, Texas Instruments DLP

While playing Nintendo's Duck Hunt one night, Marshall Capps envisioned writing on a surface too far away for him to touch and realized that TI's digital-light-processing projection technology could help him do it. On his own, he developed PointBlank technology, which relies on a DLP chip with up to 2 million tiny mirrors. Its primary application: "freeing teachers from a fixed place" by allowing them to write on InFocus LiteBoards with Point-Blank "pens" from across the classroom.
