When Bakers’ Signs installed our first sign back in 1985, it was the beginning of a decade’s long tradition of helping other sign companies complete sign jobs here in the Houston area. For 25 years thereafter, the lifeline of our business was providing installation and service to sign companies all over the country and building our reputation of trust and integrity. Many of our customers have been with us from the beginning because they knew they could count on us to get the job done right and on time. After all, OUR reputation was built on other sign companies preserving THEIR reputation.

It has been 30 years since it began for us and we have grown in leaps and bounds. We now offer services that cover the entire gamut of the sign process from design and permitting to manufacturing and service. We now handle sign projects within a 250 mile radius of Houston and have been known to travel farther when needed. However, one thing has not changed. We still take pride in assisting other sign companies with their projects here in Texas and we are still the old fashioned sign installer that they know they can count on for the long haul.

We have been waiting for it for decades and it appears it has finally arrived. Many of us remember the sci-fi movies growing up like Star Wars and Total Recall that had the cool 3D displays personalized to the viewer and wondered to ourselves, when I can get one. It appears the wait is over and we should see 3D displays hitting the streets as early as next year. Walking down the street and having a billboard talk to you directly explaining why you need to see the new movie in theatres or why you have to own the new Chevy will be the new norm. This technology is in the works and it is expected to bleed into the movie theatre experience as well as our TV’s at home. The coolest thing is no more goofy glasses! Here is an article explaining the reality of 3D displays.

Huge ultra-realistic outdoor 3D displays without glasses planned for next year
The boundaries of reality are about to dissolve. - January 19, 2015

Vienna University of Technology (TU Vienna) physicists have designed a radical autostereoscopic (“glasses-free”) laser display that will send different ultrathin laser beams directly to individual viewers’ eyes, with full sunlight readability. The objective: create a realistic 3D illusion that changes as viewers walk or fly around the virtual object, with up to several thousand 3D viewing zones — each zone displaying a different view.” “Current 3D movies only show two different pictures — one slightly different for each eye. The new display can create hundreds or thousands of pictures — one for each viewing location (or viewer).” “So if you were walking, driving, or flying by the hypothetical display shown above, you would be seeing the leopard from constantly shifting different angles — even different sides. The display is designed to be amazingly bright, so it can be used outdoors, even in bright sunlight. The researchers expect the second prototype to be finished by mid-2015, with commercial launch scheduled for 2016. And yes, existing 3D movies can be converted into the new format, the researchers say.”

Well there you have it. It looks like us receiving pleas from galactic princesses and time share salesmen in holographic-like form are about to be as ordinary as video chatting through our cell phones. I have a feeling that messaging while driving is about to take on a whole new dimension.

MattPic2014 brought Bakers’ Signs a banner year and our most successful year to date since our founding in 1985. 2014 also ushered in a new honor to Bakers’ Signs with Matt Baker being appointed to the Board of Directors for the Texas Sign Association and Greater Houston Sign Association. The TSA unites sign companies in Texas with the purpose to promote growth, offer education and influence legislation that supports the industry. With only 15 Directors, this is a very prestigious honor and a testimony to the Baker legacy as well as Matt’s contribution to making Bakers’ Signs one of the most successful sign companies in Texas. Together with Jeremiah Baker and the entire Bakers’ team, Matt Baker hopes to not only meet industry standards but find new ways to exceed them. Congratulations Matt!

Researchers at University of Texas in Austin have created a “Smart Glue” using DNA. It is a bit more complicated than that but the experiment consisted of producing a synthetic plastic material that is held together by DNA and then shaped by a 3D printer to a specific structure shape and size. The hope is that this method can be used to create new tissue and organs for patients. The DNA “glue” then grows via the synthetic scaffolding to a fully formed and developed tissue or organ that is then able to be used for a specific patient. Here is an excerpt from an article published at www.acs.org.
