What does the luxurious Venetian Macau hotel have in common with the small, early-19th century Breda castle at the eastern edge of Hungary? Projection mapping, that’s what.
Most people have now seen, somewhere, a novel use of projection mapping, whether it be at a live event or on a shared YouTube clip, but this is just the start, said Matt Barton, director at 7thSense Design. “Projection mapping allows those with a creative mind to paint their ideas onto any surface, however large or small, and whatever the shape, with the great benefit that when they want to change it, they can do so with the click of a mouse rather than getting the paintbrushes out again. Brighter projectors, higher resolutions, and new alignment technologies are extending the possibilities of this medium all the time.”
