Toyota takes projection mapping to a new level

This is how to launch a new product.  This launch takes projection mapping to new level, 3D. I know this took a ton of money, but it really is jaw dropping and mapping a three dimensional object is perhaps the coolest effect of all. Also take a look at the making of video it is equally fascinating.

Experimenting with SHOWWX laser projectors

Last week Miquel from Microvision dropped by the Mind Opera studios with four of their tiny laser projectors to conduct a few visual experiments.   The idea of these experiments was to combine the WATCHOUT technology with these ultra portable laser projectors to see how they would work projecting muti-screen or widescreen content.   In this first phase we used pre-made content and kept the layouts loose, just to get a feel for what was possible.   We were able to easily build muti-projector configurations, but things got real exciting when we took an old lamp shade and used three SHOWWX projectors to cover the entire cylinder.  Since the projectors are lasers they do not lose focus as the image falls off the edge of the lamp shade and using WATCHOUT’s geometry correction we were able to create a blend that was close enough to see how this concept might work.  Granted we did not use content specifically designed for our projector configurations, nor were the projectors exactly lined up based on mathematical calculations, but what we learned has sprouted new ideas and potential uses for the SHOWWX projectors.   I’m looking forward to the next experiment.
