grid projectoring!

I was pretty impressed by this new product called Pluribus - presumably from the Latin motto that appears on American currency meaning "From one comes many" (probably also on a counterfeiter's t-shirt). So, it uses a webcam or something to dynamically adjust its configuration to split a single video stream over any number of projectors to make a bigger, better quality image. And apparently you can just plug projectors in and plonk them down anywhere and it'll do the stuff automatically.
Good idea! I'm sure it'll be approximated in open-source form to use your standard webcam, if Pluribus turns out to be expensive...
Here's a nice shot showing the boundaries of each individual projector's display...
